Blog Update

I want to bring everyone’s attention to the new banners, please. It’s something I’m trying out and I would appreciate feedback.

What you’re looking at (in the banner) is a word cloud (I made 4, actually). You can create a word cloud by drawing up a list of words and then using either wordle or wordcram to create an image.  My clouds are based on a list of words drawn from the topic of ebooks.

I like the idea, but I’m not entirely sold on how I’m using it. What do you think?

P.S. If you’re seeing a dog but (and not a word cloud) it’s because that is the one banner I haven’t replaced yet.

I don`t get it.
Is that supposed to be an image of something?
I just see a bunch of words but it might just be me.
I`d say bring back the dog.

Squish down the height.Add more text so e is more fill. The lay down 'The Digital Reader' is white text onto with a shadow. I ,’ll try a mock up perhaps.but use the banner to rep lave your header.

Something like this as a banner header:

Nate, I give it thumbs down — actually all fingers down. I find it distracting and unattractive.

Dave Riley’s image is a little better but I still don’t like it. Nice idea to try something different and let people help you decide if to keep it or not.

How about something more colorful:

I’d prefer to have "The Digital Reader" in white, but that one could work.

If you decide to keep it, at least DO NOT use JPEG. Compressed text looks like crap. Use GIF or PNG. Actually, you should do it for almost any image that’s not a photo.
