points out, design is all the rage amongst the bloggers (see volker ben colin alex
, etc. etc.)
I confess that I am certainly one of those who has hacked together my blog (from Jake Howlett's
much better template) and am likely to keep messing with it, and I am sure to make lots of the mistakes mentioned. Well, guess what? I don't think it matters much.
Ever eaten in a Chinese restaurant? The ambiance often leaves a lot to be desired. The tables are often small and crowded. The kitchen should never be visited by a health inspector. So, why do we go instead of going to the restaurant with the lovely decor and lots of space? Because, we're in it for the food.
That's what I think about the design of blogs. Unless you are trying to sell yourself as a web designer, which I am not, who cares what it looks like? If it isn't impossible to read (and the small fonts are killing me on some sites), I care what is said, not what color it is or whether there are lines around the box. I'm in it for the food.
