Blog Re-Design

I am happy with my blog redesign. Still have a few inks to tidy up, but we're basically there.

Guido Fawkes is looking for someone to help redesign his blog. Moving away from the established templates seems to be the latest trend. If any blogger is looking for a basic redesign I'd like to advocate a fellow Prague resident, Matt, author of the website its the sads. His pitch is simple
I can redesign it as you want

My brief was very short, but he came up with a few cool ideas. He also transferred me to beta blogger and put tags on my posts. Matt is on email, msn and skype so it was painless to bounce ideas back and forth. One thing he did that worked well was to set up a test blog before going live where he experimented with ideas. Here's mine.

Contact Matt at laughingmadness@hotmail.com or visit Funky Design to outline your needs. The price is £75, but I'm sure you can negotiate it down if your needs are clear and your blog is not as right wing as mine.

A rather elegant blog design in my view.

That Guido should redesign his blog I think - it does not really reflect his personality - he should have more dull things and grey, khaki, lilac and mustard tones. Also phtographs of Jack Russel Terriers - theres my thoughts for free! We can discuss it when we meet up next week Mr Prague!

You should have an "others" section in your list of blogs - and put me in it. I don't think I fit in any of the other sections apart from right-wing bloggers i know and like - but that is your choice.

I let him do all the legwork. Try negotiating an hourly rate.

Its a great design.

I tweaked a standard blogger template to give three columns, which allows you to link to far more people.

The three column design was a key element of my brief. I'm planning on adding more public service bloggers in the near future.
