Another New Blog Template

This is about the fifth blog template we’ve had for Enlighten-New Jersey, which averages out to about one new template per month. We were never quite comfortable with any of our previous layouts, as each seemed to lack a clean, easy to read look we had hoped to present. Hopefully this template will last a bit longer, before we get sick of looking at it. There are still some things we’d like to change, but right now we’re worn out on the project.

Isn’t it amazing how much time you can waste choosing colors and a layout for a simple thing like a blog? Hours and hours spent reaching a consensus, only to discover that each monitor and browser displays the colors and layout differently. We know there is a small issue with the dividing line between the header and the main body of the page – it looks fat in Firefox, fine in Internet Explorer. We finally gave up trying to fix the problem. If anyone has any ideas for a fix, please let us know.

Should you notice any other problems, please keep it to yourself – the thought of messing around with this template for one more minute, is more than we can stand right now. Just kidding, if you come across any bugs, we would appreciate it if you would let us know. Now as to which of the technically challenged Enlighten gang will fix it, is a topic for later discussion.

We’ve spent so much time changing this damn thing that we haven’t had time to post. We have been keeping up with all of the must read Jersey blogs and will post our thoughts on some of the highlights later.

I view in Firefox 1.0.1, at a screen size of 1152x864 (go ahead, call me strange). The new look is nice -- crisp.

Now all you need is trackback.

I like it!

Looks good. Warmer, less institutional.

I think the old design had a somewhat sleaker/modern feel to it.

However, the new design is a heck of alot easier to read. No bright blue gradiants distracting my eye anymore.

Definitely an improvement.

I am ALWAYS a fan of readability. I have run into blogs that I really like, but I don't read them because it takes too much effort, particularly late at night with these tired, aging eyes. :-)

I like this look. Ya done good.

Thanks for the feedback. We're happy you think we're moving in the right direction.

You've got no monopoly re struggling with design formats. I've got a hard drive full of 'em. Until I get it sorted out, Blogger will have to do. It's quite a time sink toying with designs for oneself.

I've come to the conclusion that content trumps form. People won't go to a beautifully designed site with nothing of value in it, but they will go to an "OK" looking site that has what they need. My philosophy, at least until I come up with something better.

I like the look of this better than the previous template. Very sharp.

The Tax Return Crack-Up<3>
Granted, there are usuallyMicrosoft Office 2010write-ups when presidential contenders make their tax returns available, but the coverage falls far short of the Office 2010
full court press (pardon the pun) that the Clintons have received. What's Microsoft Office 2007different now?Office 2007One possibility is that most upper middle class Democrats, and therefore most Microsoft OfficeOffice 2007 keyeditors and reporters of our nation's big papers as well as Office 2007 downloadtelevision producers, are Obama supporters who think that Hillary should hurry up Office 2007 Professionaland drop out of the race already.Microsoft outlook
