Now that I've started trying to blog more regularly, and now that some people are actually viewing my blog, I figured it was time to ditch the lovely BlogCFC vanilla skin and make things a bit prettier around here.
I was a bit intimidated at first, being very much a back-end developer and not having done much work with css in quite awhile. With a little moral support from Paul Marcotte, I found a css template that I liked at Styleshout.com, made a couple of changes to it, including getting rid of the wood in the background graphic (thanks Paul), and started making changes to BlogCFC templates.
A few hours later my blog was reborn. It was actually pretty easy to do, and I'm quite happy with the results.
I also replaced the stock photo that comes with the template with a slice from a photo that I took during a hike in Parque Nacional Torres del Paine in southern Chile in 2004. You can see the full photo here. I plan to rotate this image with others that I've taken on my travels.
I also took this opportunity to play with Slideshows in BlogCFC, setting one up which contains a few more photos from this trip. If you enjoy nice scenery and/or are interested in Chile, check it out via the link in the sidebar.
My banner image now rotates hourly, so the link above may not actually point to a full version of the banner pic. It's still a nice photo, though.
