This Blog Looks Like Crap

So I’m under no delusions of my blog looking anything like… a well-designed blog.  Thank God for Thesis, at least their default template looks fairly respectable, but as an Internet professional, I really need something that looks better.

So, I’m going to do something about it.

Luckily there are great online resources for learning how to code websites – I’m going to be using mostly to teach myself the necessary skills.  You know the ones I mean.  The skills that people like me, technology freaks, social media “gurus”, online marketers, etc., like to talk about without knowing how to perform.

CSS.  Better HTML than I already know (give me a little credit, I’ve been dicking around with HTML since 1995).  PHP.  That should about do it, but three (admittedly related) languages, from very close to square one.

I’m leaving this image of my blog, as it is as of September 15th, 2010, up at the top of this post so if I lose interest or start slacking on this adventure, I can look at it, shudder a little bit, and re-interest myself.

This blog represents me, and for the most part, I don’t look like crap.  So, let’s see what I can do about this blog, eh?

Suggestions, tips, tricks, and criticisms are always welcome.
