A few different blogs I read have been playing with templates lately... and not being satisfied with my own... I decided to join in on the fun. I've gone through many templates over the years, but only two of them have stuck around for any period of time.
Blogger, specifically Blogger Draft has really developed their designs and widgets the last few years... and they've gotten so good I've decided to just roll with it. I liked my old template, but I hated how the comment feature was at the top, there was no date and some other minor things I couldn't wrap my brain around fixing. It was basically what I was using because blogger didn't offer anything I liked at the time!
So, my point of this post was to say... Material wise, nothing has change and for the most part I tried to keep almost everything in the same "place." The background will probably go soon, as I want something more cactus-y and easier on the eyes ;-) I have to mess with my blog roll and links on the side a little more.... so if you were there and aren't there now... you should be back up soon.
