I recently visited Skeet’s Blog, and was immediately struck by the unusual but delightful header image on her blog.
When I wrote her about it, this is what Anita wrote:
Mahalo Kenneth! A friend did the art for me after my theme designer tried to sell me on a very chic, Sex-in-the City looking gal for the header. So not me! Goal was to depict me – mature semi-anonymous (like all bloggers) woman, sitting in her clutter, reading a book instead of doing something about the mess. Camera, shopping and books all tie in to the new blogs I’m building. I really love what she came up with. Dogs and Hawaii are central to my life, too, of course.
I’ve mentioned eye candy in several ways over the last few months. And the personalization she achieves by including a sketch of a human being (herself) in cartoon form really adds to the tone and appearance of her blog. Very nicely done. I’ve been posting comments on her environment and finance categories.
Good luck on your blog!
