Does this website redesign make me look fat?

You may have noticed that I changed the header and some of the site design. Hope y'all like it. My mom liked the old one better, but it bothered me that I couldn't alter the design at all, so I made a header and played with the template until it worked. Can't please everyone, I suppose. I was pretty tired of the old look, and the dozen or so pre-fab template choices weren't really doing it for me. Let me know if anything renders weirdly in your browser.

I'm not totally in love with the banner, so I'll probably change it periodically from now on, now that I've figured out how to do it. Any of you design geeks out there are welcome to submit headers to me. It should be 765 x 150, and I like having a changeable tagline area. I have five or six versions of this one all ready to go should the mood strike. Ideally, if you're going to submit something, it'd be nice to get a layered file, so I can make little edits easier if there's a glitch. I would also avoid copyright infringement whenever possible. Feel free to use stuff from my Flickr page, or yours, or anything you've taken yourself. You can send anything you come up with to, a new email address I set up to deal with blog-related stuff.

You could also use that address if you want to say something to me about a post, but don't feel like leaving a comment. You know, if you're really shy or something.

Also, I have turned off comment moderation. I'll turn it back on if I find robot comments or advertising sullying up the site, but what this means for you is that if you make a comment on a post, you no longer have to wait for me to check my email and approve it. You could have whole conversations with each other, theoretically, while I am snugly asleep in my bed.

I've been meaning to do some of this stuff for quite a while, but it still feels like maybe this is an example of how I'll do anything to avoid work, even when the only work I have to do is on my novel. So now I think I'm gonna go plug away at that for a while.

I like it a great deal, Mr. Moon.

You seemed to have figured it out quickly. Let's talk about this. I would love to know how to do this.

Now, back to that damned novel. Get writing.

Unsub: It's Mr. Topples, or just Moon.

Anonymous: Dammit! I knew I should have used a design with vertical stripes.
