New Year, New Look

I've been secretly working on an update for my blog design for the last few weeks. I did about 75% of it in one night, including getting it live on a test-site, and then took my sweet time finishing the last bit. Some new things I picked up along the way were:
  • making social networking icons that light up when your mouse hovers over them
  • putting social networking icons in the header
  • adding a drop down menu in blogger
  • installing Disqus & LinkWithin {super easy btw}
  • styling cool bullet points
And also, figuring out how to style block quotes so they turn out something like this:
Find something you are passionate about and keep tremendously interested in it.  ~ Julia Child
Everyday I'm learning new things about blogging and graphic design. In the blink of an eye, 2 or 3 hours will pass while I'm working in photoshop or playing with code. I even bought some super geeky books while I was at home: CSS: The Missing Manual and Smashing Wordpress. And by geeky, I mean the pages are filled with codes that are starting to make sense in my brain.
