Midnight Blog Re-Design and Webmonkey

I made some significant improvements to my blog's design. I googled free templates for blogger (my blog is through Blogger, but you can put tumblr or wordpress... whichever you use). I found several good designs and downloaded them. I chose this design, because I wanted a darker background. It makes videos and photos stand out better. I had to alter the xml slightly, so if you don't know html or xml, if your template doesn't work, you may need help tweaking a few settings. It is simple enough you can probably even google enough info to get it done yourself.

I went to btemplates.com and found hundreds of templates. Check it out, or search google. I did all this in a few hours, so it wasn't too bad.

When you're adding a color to your Web page with HTML (or XML), sometimes you can just type in the name of the color. But more often than not, you'll need to use what's called the hex code, which is something that the browser will be able to understand. Webmonkey provides an easy to use Color Chart that allows you to search for colors and get the hex code. The bonus is that because it is a Web site, you can see what the colors actually look like on the Web (as opposed to books or printed charts, which don't look the same as they do online).
