I was getting tired of the old out-of-the-box skin I was using on Blogger. So much so that I considered going through a process of migrating to Wordpress. That was until I discovered Colourise. I am always drawn to dark skins. This theme is no exception, and the color spectrum included in the banner put this one over the top.

I shed that old skin for this new one. I had to make a couple tweaks after I imported it (color of search bar border, javascript on search box), but it was very easy to implement. Thank you, Erwin Aligam.

One thing I found about dark skins, is that you really have to revisit the images you provide in your posts...especially those with transparent backgrounds. They looked pretty bad before I swapped them out.

As you can see, I've updated my look again. I'm using another template for now, but I really want to really customize this to create a unique brand for myself. Part of that work would be to add content under the portfolio, too.
