No reviewing here today. No reviewing here today.

Can you tell I've been watching Disney movies with my kids again?

Instead of a review, here are some great sites with blog designs (freebies) that I've found lately. Some of you should consider using them. Yes, that was a not-so-hinty-hint.

Dante Araujo - these are all new blogger (not classic blogger) and wordpress templates.

Deluxe Templates - great galllery of free templates, and some really creative fun stuff in this one.

Blog Bulk

How to design your own template (and some links to some great blogger galleries)


Enjoy.

  1. I'm weirdly attached to my boring ass template. Thinking about changing it is giving me a slight panic attack. But that's what the Xanax is for. Thanks for the links, LB!

  2. Thanks for the list.

    Template downloads always create a sort of ethically grey area for me. I'm too picky to adore a template "as is", so at what point does the template stop being "theirs" and start being "mine"? For example, I started with Minima on my current template, but it looks NOTHING like that now, so should I be crediting the Minima person?

    Regardless, thanks for the new ideas and inspiration.

  3. I think someone should take over the make over of my blog. Especially because I actually shared my famous pumpkin recipe on my blog today. Yeah, THE pumpkin muffins!
    Damn, now I'm just going to have to kill and then butt fuck someone.

    Muffin? Anyone?

  4. What I need is a header with a row of barstools. And not those fancy shmancy ones, I want the wooden ones where one leg is shorter than the others and you're constantly rocking and twisting to get comfy. Straight up. Not crazy artsy angles and colors, just barstools. In a bar. Where people drink beer.

  5. I'm going to have to take up web design.

    ReplyDelete
  6. I think mine might need to include a pumpkin muffin, horse, something violent and a mid-sized photo of Rassles all sideways on an uneven bar stool.

  7. I was under the impression that a dark background with light text was easy on the eyes till Calamity went all "hurr I keel you!" on me. I used a lot of geek knowhow to customize my new template although it doesn't show it. And photoshop for the header. Commitment! I like my template

    ReplyDelete
  8. Rassles, I could help with the image...

    ReplyDelete
  9. Sure. Help is good, and always appreciated.

    I think I'm just going to go take the picture myself, so I know I get what I want. Or maybe I should draw it...hmmm.

  10. I used to have a blank and white template and I got complaints every day.

    So now its all cheery and stuff. I did manage to secret a pic of pancho in a post. Its my FU to all the people that complained about my template.

  11. I'm into collages. They're fuckin awesome. You should take like 3 images and I can put 'em together in a size that fits your header.

    That sounds a little sleazy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. African American? Coffee?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Retards? Photoshop? Noobs?

    ReplyDelete
  14. Thanks for all the links. I'm going to have a look at them. I'm content with what I have but always searching for something I will like better. :D

    ReplyDelete
  15. I have a weird addiction to templates. I hate changing my own, but I like making recommendations to other people of how they should change theirs.

    ReplyDelete
  16. Foxie, I like the background, but I hate the green type on the black. Wicked hard to read.

    ReplyDelete
  17. I wasn't sure what colours to use for the type. I don't like white on black. I also like making sure everything coordinates, I'm anal that way. I know the green is hard to read. I'll have to play around with the colours.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Foxglove, I owe you amends girl. Sorry I was a dick to you here a few days ago.

    ReplyDelete
  19. No worries. I tend to test people's patience sometimes. It's a subconscious habit, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, me too. But mine is conscious. How obnoxious, right?

    ReplyDelete
  21. No problems, we like dicks here.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Being conscious of one's behaviour is great. Sometimes it's fun to use it in bad ways. I too am known to have this quality. It's one of my...more defined characteristics let's say. :D

    When you don't know people, you don't know their buttons. I think it's more obnoxious to push said buttons when you know what they are.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I prefer the penetrating kind... :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. I come here because it allows me to be a dick.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I come here because I like it when Boomer is a dick.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I like it when Rassles is a dick too.

    Sometimes? We're dicks together and then magic happens.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Now that I've been all nice and everything...who is going to volunteer to be killed and then butt fucked?
    Also, anyone making my pumpkin muffins must provide a full report of nekkid slathering.

    ReplyDelete
  28. MG, I'm going to be in the Ozarks this weekend, so I guess I'm the most logical choice for being killed and um, butt fucked.

    Wow, I kind of hated to type that.

    ReplyDelete
  29. BB, now I am happy again. This place turns me into a bi-polar vision seeking freak with violent tendencies. No, wait. That's all the drugs I did.

    ReplyDelete
  30. I've never claimed to be a pacifist, frankly. Or a non-dick.

    I remember the first time a guy called me a bitch. I was weirdly flattered.

    ReplyDelete
  31. LB - I can totally relate. I used to think I SHOULD bristle at being called a bitch. Now? It's on the verge of a compliment.

    ReplyDelete
  32. There is totally nothing wrong with being called a bitch. I often smile and say thank you when I'm called one. That seems to piss people off even more, so I keep on smiling.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Disney movies rock! For entertaining the chitlens that is. ;)

    Oh and more really cool template sites:

    http://veerublog.blogspot.com/search/label/Templates

    http://www.bloggerstyles.com/

    http://wpbloggerthemes.blogspot.com/

    Of course since most are copycats of each. Hence why I like to modify the shit out of each of my designs to make it my own.

    ReplyDelete
  34. ANY color type on a black background just makes me scream and reminds me of too many fights with art directors. That's why I have the most basic template in existence. Every word is sacred!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Lady: I think your blog looks amazing. That header image is sexy. I mean, really sexy. I kind of want to hump it.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Fuck a blog header image? Someone needs a boyfriend.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I admit I am in need of a good ramming. But that header image is still sexy.

    ReplyDelete
  38. On a number of blogs that I have read, I prefer black text on a black background. Much easier to take them that way.

    As for blog headers, that Niagaran Pebbles is pretty hot. Not to name drop, but I happen to be best friends with the photographer.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Pos--it IS hot. Was just telling husband tonight that I'd like to see the falls someday.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Everything about POS is hot.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Of course, you realize that I am blushing now, even though I completely agree with your assessment.

    Yes. I am that conflicted about my awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The only thing wrong with INTJs is their relative scarcity. Everything else? Perfection.

    :)

    But as an INTJ, I get why you might not see it that way.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Pos....we may be the only two INTJs in the blogosphere...or, at least, the AAYSR blogosphere.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Fuck you guys, and I've said this before: I'm a total ENFP. Or an ENTP. It's so hard to decide which one fits me better.

    OMG! (Um, by the way, my new favorite thing is to start everything with "OMG!" just to be obnoxious) Everyone must take the quiz and discuss their results.

    (Nerd alert.)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Omg, dude, I'm an ENFP/ENTP, too. I'm like right in the middle on the F/T thing. That's so weird. Rassles is my online soulmate.

    ReplyDelete
  46. This makes total sense, LB, because we are both saving the world. Duh.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Actually, it does. Who would save the world if it was made up of INTJs?

    ReplyDelete
  48. (my boyfriend would tell me that no one would require saving if everyone were INTJs...he may be right).

    ReplyDelete
  49. If the world were made up of INTJ's, we'd all be Vulcan.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Every time I take those things I get a different answer. I blame user error. Or multiple personalities.
