Monster Makeover

Ta-da! How do you like the New Look Frankensteinia?

First, my apologies if you logged in overnight and the site looked like The Monster had pulled the lever and the lab had exploded. No sooner did I activate the new template, we had a citywide cable outage. Perfect timing! The site was a shambles for a while, but all’s well now and most of the changes have been made.

Nothing major. As you can see, the main body remains the same, but I needed more space on the side. The label/tag list has grown and I couldn’t really add new stuff without having one of those 10-foot long, infinitely scrolling sidebars, so I’ve added a column and I can spread things out a little.

I am mostly done. The Mary Shelley/Frankenstein resource links and Forum links still need to be restored and there are a still a few very minor cosmetic changes to come. Note, I have reorganized the labels so as to group all films titles together, at the bottom of the list. I’ve also designed a bunch of banners and I’ll be rotating in a new one every week.

I hope you like the new design. Let me know what you think.

I like it, I especially like the 2 column seperation of your page links and other blog links on the right hand side.

And I'll be the first to say it: the banner gives a WONDERFUL new meaning to the term "cleavage." :P

Great stuff, Pierre! Do you do contract work? ;)

Looks fab Pierre... I've been thinking about a make-over for THOIA myself lately.

I'm going to have to live with it a while. Two columns may be one column too much for me. But that is a dandy banner.

Love the make-over. I hope that (another?) Premio Dardos award welcomes it nicely:

Enjoy your blog. For all you Boris fans, please check my blog for a Frankenstein Monster painting with a difference. Look for the Bass Monster posting.

Pierre, your banners always impress me and this one is no exception. The side columns are neat, easy to read and in no way seem to be intruding on, or distracting from the meat and potatoes of the main blog.

Well done, Pierre. Still one of the nicest-looking blogs on the 'net.*
