Blog Envy.

Being a designer, I've played around with the look of my blog over the past couple of years. I've designed new headers, added crap to my sidebar and even managed to figure out how to add a third column to my page, which I'm surprised no one has contacted the Nobel committee about since I'm pretty sure they have a category for that type of thing. Hell, I can even make type bold, colored and italicized. Take that, suckas!

But I came across a blog recently that has me thumping my chest a little less loudly. This one is absolutely ingenious - simple in design but the mechanics just blow me away. It's enough to make me want to take my fancy type and go home.

(It may take a few seconds to load but is absolutely worth it. Also, there is a musical track in the background so if you're at work and supposed to be filling out spreadsheets and not blogging, you might want to turn your volume down.)

If anyone needs me, I'll be over here working on my new 4-column template.

Damn.

Day-um.

Well, I feel boring now. I felt boring before but now I really feel dull.

Domestic Chicky said...

That is insane...brilliant, but insane!

Phoenix said...

Dam he's impressive.

I can't even figure out Blogger. I doubt I could invent something so cool.

Planet Mom said...

OMG. Was that radical, or what?!

I shall crawl into a corner now and feel pitifully inadequate as a blogger, as a person and as a creature that breathes air.

Ugh.

supermom_in_ny said...

I'm speechless. Oh and he was born in 1982!!!!!!!!

Becky said...

well at first I was going to ask you how to add a 3rd column to my blog...before i looked at his blog...
...i think i will now just go crawl into the corner and shrivel up...that is so impressive! i love his blog..and yours...and hate mine. its nothing compared to yours or his!

Antique Mommy said...

That is extremely cool. Probably too cool for someone like me.

Tricia said...

Oh, to be 25... WOW, so cool! And yeah, how do you add the third column?

melody said...

crap! I thought I was doing so well, I can never face my plane Jane blog again.

Clearly, he loves programing. Clearing he's talented. I think I viewed every section of his blog.

I'll be the one in bed sulking...if you need me.

Oh,came here via Maya's Mom. Thanks.

Judy said...

That is just beyond amazing! Aside from wondering how he executing such a thing, how did he think of such a cool thing? I'm inspired--but my blog feels a little static now!

kim said...

Wicked cool. I can't even figure out how to customize my header. Maybe my 11yr old will do it for me.

bec said...

That blog is so beautiful it makes me want to cry.

I'm definitely going to do something about Camel today... Probably... Maybe...

Christina_the_wench said...

I feel inadequate now. I need to go enlarge or airbrush something. Be right back...

jennster said...

that is really cool, BUT I WILL ADMIT- that it kind of gets annoying.. the fact the grabs everything the whole time to show it to you. i like things faster.. hemakes it too slow.lol

Gurukarm said...

OK. I'm obviously way too old. Sigh. Yes, very cool design. Very bad web - accessibility, usability, etc. It's all Flash and javascript, so impossible to change text size, for instance (see, told you I'm old - I always have to increase text size on nearly every web page for my old tired eyes :-) )

But, definitely very VERY creative design.

landismom said...

You've got it over that guy on content in spades. The design is nice, though.

Jodi said...

oh my word, that is soooo cool. How in the world did he do THAT I wonder? I can't even figure out to change my templete....

Ruth Dynamite said...

That's perty new-fangled stuff, that feller's got there.

God I'm old. And dumb. Very dumb.

Shannon said...

I thought I might be the only one who *doesn't* like it, but I did see a couple kinda negative comments above. It's unique and fun for a minute, but then just annoying. When I visit a blog I really enjoy checking out all the sidebar stuff and jumping off to other links.

Marymurtz said...

It'll take me a year to lose enough weight to be filmed for a blog like that.

I LOVED that layout!!!

Diana said...

yeah, I need a new look!
I'M BACK!!!! And some BIIIIIIG news have been posted!

tracey said...

Funny, I just saw the site the other day and was equally impressed. Makes me feel all insecure about my creativity and stuff.
