Rotating Header Images?

February 6, 2007

I reached the conclusion early on when designing the basic layout for the blog that I wasn’t going to be able to come up with a cool header on my own with my ancient photoshop program.  So, I thought I’d make a bunch of relatively simple ones with a theme, and just change it every so often:




I’ve made about a dozen or so like this.  It would be kinda neat if the wordpress interface allowed you to have them change automatically based on a timer, calander, or with every hit.  wink, wink For now, I’ll just try to put a new one in there once a week and see how that goes.  Eventually, my creative juices will begin to ebb, and I’ll stop making new ones (I’m pretty much there).  Then I’ll resort to going back to the top of the order again. 

Update:  There are 15 different header images in total.  I’ve decided to make that the final count.  I generally make the change first thing Sunday.

Update:  What can I say?  I’ve got a fever, and the only prescription …is one more header.  So. make it 16.


Obligatory Dog Post

February 6, 2007

I’m gonna take this opportunity and go ahead and post pic of my dog now.  Yep.  My dog.  It’s my blog, and I’ll do what I want to dammit! 

Jokes aside, I really did have this thought about what I want this blog to be, and posts with pics of my dog in them wasn’t exactly what came to mind.  No matter, I’m gonna do it anyway. 🙂  The girlfriend talked me into picking him up from the humane society after she saw an online pic a few years ago, and the guy just grew on me.  He’s a chow chow mixed with …..we’re not sure exactly……

His name is Indy:

Don’t laugh:
Indy, donning his makeshift hotspot cure!

I cut up an old t-shirt and put it on him to keep him from licking the hot spots on his “armpit”. He looked so funny, I just had to take a picture.  The technique worked pretty well.

I just thought I’d post a couple of pics of the guy who sits faithfully by me here around the computer, and waits for something to get excited about (in fact, he’s sitting right here watching me type this).  Maybe I could so far as to say that he serves as some inspiration when I post stuff, since I have a habit of peeking down at him when I’m stumped on something (like what to post on the blog today).
