MTMD's New Graphical Design!

A huge shout out to Stephanie Davies for taking my ideas and photos and turning them into this beautiful blog template!

I first entered the blogosphere two and a half months ago to make it easy for friends and family to follow my vacation adventures in Alaska last January. Blogger allowed me to upload great pictures of that huge and open land known as our forty-ninth state and share those adventures as they were happening without the delay and inconvenience of having to send post cards.

Since I started blogging, I have some across literally hundreds of blogs with some amazing graphics. I said to myself: "Now that is really cool!" and I wanted to expand the look of my blog beyond what Blogger offers and make it truly beautiful and unique. I think I've achieved that with the awesome help of Stephanie Davies and her awesome design talents. (If you're interested in contracting for her services, you can find contact info in the post immediately below this one.) Tonight my dream of creating a beautiful online presence was realized, and over two hours Stephanie and I fine-tuned and debugged the template to optimize it as much as possible for IE and Firefox.

Graphical design has taken up much of my time the last two months as I searched for that elusive look. I truly believe we have achieved a unique and beautiful style, and now with this out of the way, I can go back to concentrate on my blogging.

I hope you will take a few minutes to look around, post a comment or two, and enjoy Stephanie's creative work. And I hope you'll return frequently for the content as I continually update my blog, add functionality, new features, and hopefully, some interesting posts.

Thanks for reading.

You still have white text on black background, but otherwise it looks good!
