There is a new blog occupying the sidebar for the next week. And she has made some great templates, too!
But I know that can be a subjective view of things. I mean what looks good and what does not. I think that should be obvious to anyone that has been surfing any blogs. Sure, the standard templates are not something you would usually call pretty, but you can still read the content without being too pissed about the way it looks.
I admit that almost always anything more than a standard template is better than the original. Almost. Sometimes the result is something that just makes me close the window before even looking at the content. Usually these are sites for someone that likes to so it yourself.
But not always. I am fully aware that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. But it still beats me why someone would pay for a design that hurts my eyes. I can spot the work of one designer almost immediately. And I hate every single one of them. But people keep buying those, so I must be wrong. I must be. But it still hurts my eyes. And I do not want to know what is in the page, all I can think about is getting the hell out of there!!
