Some time next month, I will give my blog a new look and feel and some improved functionality if possible. Until that moment I will be testing various options for design and if you like, you can track after the developments and give feedback and suggestions. I have set up four test blogs:
First. A 3 column design. I have seen most professional blogs had a 3 column design and I want to see if I can make it work for mine. The first worry: the text column must not be too narrow. If however the text is wide and the rest of the columns are also wide enough, the blog may look no good on smaller screens. Currently this blog can lose the columns in Firefox 1.5 with small screens.
Second Another 3 column look. The template for this design involved many advertisements I had to cut away and some of the empty spaces still need to be used for the better.
Third This 3 column design has a very elegant fractals element in it. In IE, however, the About section turns hidden. Another bug to struggle with. What I also like and very much want are the links on top that can serve as tabs and will be linked to a landing page, to the directories and other pages to enable easier navigation.
Fourth Back to the 2 column design. If three is too crammed, maybe two will be better after all. Also in this design we have links on top that can serve as tabs and will be linked to a landing page, to the directories and other pages to enable easier navigation.
