Um ... a touch on the loud side ...?
Is it? I thought it was rather sparse!
Not loud busy, loud shouty, in a stark sort of way. Not that it's not fine, of course.
Font too big says the jerk who doesn't (yet) need glasses?I suggest something like purisa medium for the titles (although if I could get away with it, I'd suggest sans serif for the titles as purisa for the main body: but no one would go for it). Here's my current desktop, which uses it for menus. Maybe useless advice, as I think the font might be unique to Gnome, but I'm sure there's something similar out there we could use on the blog.
I think we have it worked out: smaller font, more subtle frame, less loud, more dignified, non-screaming color scheme...
I think it looks really great now. I wish we could have little garden gnomes that would run across the posts alternately screaming obscenities and flashing readers. No, just kidding about that. Then again . . . .Now we just need Zazzle.com t-shirts and we're all set.
If you can create the gnomes as a Flash animation (hey that's a pun, when I think about it), then I'm happy to have them on the blog, Eileen.
Much better now. In fact it's [Borat voice]Niiiice[/Borat voice].
Eileen: gnomes would be good, but given the persistent ITM interest in the elision of the human/animal borderline, maybe you should make this 5-second clip into a gif:http://www.collegehumor.com/video:1764124/
