Spring Break Reading Challenge

Today's topic for the
Spring Break Reading Challenge
is "What would you like to do with your blog?"

Well, in case you haven't noticed, I have a generic Blogger background. What I'd like to do if I were handy with a crayon and paper, is to create one of those fun cartoony title graphics as well as a background for my blog. In my dream world, it would be a wondrous drawing of the moon from my current WIP, since the title from my blog is derived from the first line of said novel. Now, I could create something in Photoshop using photographs and what not, and probably will at a later date once I get a handle on my current MS and have more time. But it's just not the same.

I'd also like to create a side bar with my favorite links. I do know how to do that, but once again, taking the time while my 1yo chews up a chair just isn't viable.

Until tomorrow,
cheers and ice cream

Hey hun ... I don't know comfortable you'd feel w/ it since it's still in beta mode ... Blogger does have a new Template Designer, and I have some cool backgrounds that are similar to what you describe ... When you have a chance to read up on it, go here http://bloggerindraft.blogspot.com/2010/03/blogger-template-designer.html

Oh, and it doesn't take too long if you're not severely OCD like I am! ;-)

Ps. I used the it to redesign my personal blog last night. I plan on digging in to redesigning my book review blog w/ it sometime soon as well.

Thanks for posting. Jennifer - way to go in recommending Draft Blogger.
I used it the other day to work on a blog unrelated to reading. http://chiggergulch.blogspot.com.
