I WON!!! The Most Ugly RPG Blog Award!
OK, just kidding... but I do have a very strong desire to eliminate the busy, distracting nature of this blog's layout and design. The problem is that I have very little time to tinker around with CSS and HTML for hours on end. So what do you think I should do?
Drop blogger and jump to WordPress? Or stay here and just redesign using one of bloggers templates?
Fire up my own hosting service and get back into PHP? My mousefinger groans in pain at the thought of hacking php again.
So, since I don't have all the time in the world... should I use a free template or purchase one? Are purchased WordPress templates "worth it"?
Is there anything about my current site design that you like? (I'm so sick of looking at it, I usually use my feedreader to check the layout of my posts...)
My goal is simple: to improve The Core Mechanic by improving the reader's "experience" through increasing the blog's functionality. Simplicity, readability, functionality are the words that make me go "Yeah... I want that".
Any feedback you have, positive or otherwise, is very much appreciated.
