Today I dedicated some time to update the sidebar of the blog. Let's see how it looked few hours ago:
Pretty basic, isn't it? I wanted to spice things up a bit with something more personal.
First of all I finally removed the annoying grey border that appeared around every picture (you can find a tutorial on how to do it here). It was not hard at all!
Then I created some fun divider for the different gadgets I have on the side bar. I used a chevron pattern of the same color of the header. With this little detail the sidebar doesn't look anymore as a boring list of links and text, but it works nicely with the rest of the page.
I also wanted to get rid off the boring profile picture I had and use something more personal, so I used a picture of "us" (or should I say our feet?) shot during our last trip.
I made the same changes in hellodoorsevenlife as well, with the difference that in there I used a "real" picture of us. :)So, how does it look? I know the difference is not huge, but I am more than satisfied!!
What about you? Have you been working on the graphic of your blog lately as well?
