So ever since my wife won a new blog template I have been silently lamenting the fact that my blog has only a "stock" template. I know I could find a template from a third party kind of website, but I thought, I'm a semi-creative type. I know what I like and what I don't like; I'll make one.
Now I am using the GIMP an open source program much like Adobe Photoshop. I know that the program is far and away powerful enough to do what I think I'd like, but as I was trying to make a header for my blog, I found I wasn't so sure of what I like and wasn't so sure of how I wanted it to look and tie together. So I have to think some of this through a little bit.
I'm thinking it's harder than I thought to be a designer of any kind.
