A new Post about not about a photo app, well part of it is.

Today I would like to talk about something a little more serious, but it is Friday, the weather is wonderful, and it is impossible. So, I am going to engage in a little shameless self promotion.

I have several blogs, and recently they have taken on a whole new look thanks to the Fantastic +Jeremy Crow they have taken on a whole new look.

Life Explained Explains Music

And

Life Explained Explains the End


It would have been smart to save a screen shot of the blogs before he reworked them, a before and after effect. It is an amazing transformation. Visual appeal is a very important component but it is not something everybody understands. There is a technique to choosing colors, and combining elements that takes some sense of taste.

Combine that with the awful, convoluted "layout" options in the blogger menu and it becomes easy to pick something and just live with the choice.

Technology is wonderful, but it is a curse, too. I was thinking about going and checking what he did to make all the changes. But, it would have been humbling to ask him to go back and fix it again. So, just like Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, and the intrinsic value of representative democracy I will just believe in the magic of the world around me.
