The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles

Hello everyone! Greetings from Kandahar!
Well, I thought it high time for a face lift and a new look for The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles. Though I was mighty pleased with the original template, I was, quite frankly, getting tired of it - maybe bored is a better choice of words.
So I saved the old template, (Just in case...) and fiddled around with this one. I'm still tweaking it. I'm not satisfied with the font colors that are the default ones, and you all know that I use a dark red color for quotes. Those will have to change; if I have a hard time with them, then so will many of you.
It got me to thinking about a couple of things while I was at it.
As bloggers, we are always trying to garner attention to our site by having good material and content. I think that it's a good idea to occasionally mix things up a bit with a new layout, or even a new template. I regularly switch the order of the "gadgets" on the side column, and for a while I would change the header picture once a month. This weekend for instance, had I been home and had full access to the net and computer, I would have used Blake's header since I am writing about fishing and fishing blogs.
Unless you one of those folks that tweak the html, you should have too much trouble switching from one template to another. And unless you radically change the widths of your outside columns, you shouldn't have to redo any pictures or links you may have created. The Blogger gadgets adjust themselves.
So to recap. Change things up a bit every now and again. Try a new layout, switch things around, maybe even give a different template a go!
