Does This Layout Make Me Look Fat?

Be honest.
I can handle it.
You might notice I've rearranged a bit.
I finally conquered the HTML and figured out how to get three columns!
As my cleverness only goes so far, I used the information on Blogger Buster to do it.
Of course, I still want to have a custom background image, but I still can't figure that out.
And, now that I have three columns, I want color between the columns like I've seen on some blogs.
Obviously, I can't be satisfied.

But now that I have my long coveted extra sidebar, I'm worried it all looks a bit cluttered.
I mean, I knew I had a lot of sidebar content to begin with, which was part of the reason I wanted a second one. But now I'm worried it a bit busy.
Maybe I should change the sidebar colors a bit to add some differentiation?
More importantly, I should probably figure out how to get my banner centered.
I'm also painfully aware that I have a TON of labels. I was starting to try to weed them out a bit, but I don't know if eliminating individual project tags would make the labels more or less usable.

It's All Very Complicated
This blogging business. And having a pretty blog.
I guess that's why I'm mainly a content generator and not a design person.
Oh well, I've been at this since, oh my goodness, 1 pm! That's around two and a half hours! Good grief, that is a lot of valuable knitting time I've just frittered away. Although my wrists needed the rest, my hands have been tweeky lately.
Ok, since tomorrow is a holiday we still have to do our grocery shopping today, so I better get a move on.
Wait, before I go downstairs I have to figure out what is going on in the Yankees game. If they are winning I have to stay up here so I don't mess up their mojo. sigh, boys are so funny with their sports.


  1. Kudos on your three column achievement! It's obvious you don't have children ;). Maybe if the center column was a different font it would stand out more from the sidebar.

  2. I think it looks good! I'll have to check again, at home, though. I have my internet set wrong here and everything is too big and doesn't fit on the screen anyway. Of course, I have no clue how to fix it. You are definitely doing better than I!! :)
