I’d like to take a moment and openly confess that I am jealous of a fellow blogger’s web design skills. Specifically I’d like to whine about Leigh from the blog Thoughtprints who seems to have a totally new layout on her blog every other time I visit and I try to visit at the very least a couple of times a week if not daily.
Each design is better than the last and each one makes me go “DAMN! HOW’D SHE DO DAT!?!” Yes, I’m reduced to a Ebonics spewing babbling moron by her amazing design skills. The color schemes are always eye pleasing, the layouts are always sensible and I’m always insanely jealous at how she makes revamping her site seem no more troublesome than changing her clothes. I go back and look at some of the stuff I’ve done which I once considered to be pretty good and suddenly I’m not as happy with the work anymore. My latest design was for Life’s Reflection and features my first real attempt at a composited image for the logo at the top left which I thought turned out OK for someone with the graphic artist skills of an epileptic monkey. Dawn seems very happy with my efforts, but I can’t help but feel I should be pointing more folks to Leigh for their layouts. Particularly if they want a more feminine look to it.
Anyway, I just wanted to publicly acknowledge my awe and wonder at a fellow blogger’s wonderful layouts in the hopes that a little kissing up to her will encourage her to tutor me a little.
