Blog Redesign

Today I decided to redesign Woodland Shoppers Paradise - and it's about time.

This morning I began to read some of my colleagues' blogs when I noticed how much more snappy their designs are than mine. I'd been stuck with the same generic default format for about three years, always dreading the potential that a revision would royally screw up my pages. And yes, I ended up spending much of the day fiddling with details. But Blogger's relatively new Template Designer allowed me plenty of flexibility in building a site around a swell background image (photographed during a research trip to Alberta's West Edmonton Mall).

Take a look and please let me know: Any problems? Any glitches?

Looks great -- very clean, well organized. The background photo looks cool, too.

I like how much cleaner this is. It has a more open look and feel to it...I guess the background photo, offering a different perspective...a peek into a bigger, wider world, helps as well :-)
