Changing the Looks!

Just doing a little messing around with that darned HTML around here, so please don't get too uppity if this page doesn't load right! It should load left anyways since I am a liberal, ya know? :)

If you look over there on the right>>> sidebar you should notice that I have joined up with a local (Connecticut) "Lefty Blogs" news feed. In a perfect world the liberal side would be on the left, and the left side would be on the right, thus eliminating the right-wing-nut-GOP-talking-point-crack-pipe-smoking-idiots completely. I know, I KNOW! You can't eliminate all of the evil in this world. It's a "Ying-Yang" thing.

Anyways...

I don't like the generic look of the Blogspot templates.

So I will be trying different things with this Blogger template, and I might even just trash it and design my own from scratch. (Yep... I am somewhat computer literate, I was just too busy to do this before! lol)

You would think that Google would already be on top of this issue. I see a lot of blogs that complain about the generic look and even some that offer free templates. BUT All Google would have to do is to integrate a basic "web designing tool" geared towards building Blogs into Blogspot (Like Geocities did with their "basic design tools for web-dummies") and they could eliminate much of the generic feces that you see on blogspot.

It would take a little time and money, but we all know Google has plenty of both. I haven't even looked at the Beta version of Blogspot yet. They might have these kind of features in there already?

I can see it, I'm using Opera 9.02. I wish I could give you some pointers, but I use LiveJournal.

I find the font a little hard to read but I have pretty bad vision.

Just wanted to share a funny story.. at the Murphy/Johnson debate, there were all the requisite supporters outside with signs .. and some Johnson troll called me a 'hippie'. I think he was about 20 years old. IT was pretty hilarious, I have an MBA and I worked on Wall Street for 20 years, I'm a fiscal conservative.. that makes me a hippie???? LOL. that made my day.

;)

Similarly, I'm not sure the blogs listed are 'lefty'... I suspect they're more moderate than the Shubpublicans would care to admit.

I know that... I am on the far left of the average Democrat that is really a moderate right winger.

On the world stage I am a "centrist" that leans left or right depending on the issues... But here in the god ole USA I am way out in left field? lol

The GOP is far right, and the necons are also very authoritarian. Way too hardcore right to be representing the average American.
