Updated Design and Tabs!

I have long been looking to collect my resources in one place.  I have Diigo links, an Amazon Store with my favorite books, and LibraryThing.  To top it off, I never could get the header to this blog to display the way I wanted.  I downloaded some code to make tabs but hadn't gotten around to hacking my template (nor would I soon.)

Today I discovered you could add tags with Blogger In Draft, as well as other nifty things, and...here is the new look.

I plan on using the tabs to link over to Diigo or LibraryThing rather than reconstructing everything anew here.  I hope to get to that sometime, or at least get something crude going until I can polish it off.  My hope is to have each page divided by level--maybe even subtopic.  We'll see how it ends up, but at least I have a start.

Yours is off to a great start! It's such a pain to migrate to a new system.

Oohh, I like the header without the top and bottom bars. I also like the tabs. It will make it much easier to navigate your site. Good thinking!

Nice clean look Kris! Great idea :)

Suji (aka the constant blog design fiddler...because hacker sounds too "pro" and I'm far from that LOL)

Love the new look! You offer so much great information - it's great to get the layout set up in a way that facilitates getting to the *right stuff* when you're looking!

Great job!

Tracey, the easiest thing to do is to simply post a link to the related Diigo link, LibraryThing tag, and so forth. I can then list some of my favorites. I think I will add a tab for whatever our family is doing, too.

Thanks for nice comments!
