I love discovering new places as I did tonight, The Brenda Blog, Snippets of Me.
And the found her blog banner designer, Susan Tuttle.
Okay, I know my blog banner is rather boring. I have never changed it from the CSS. And I have designed hundreds of them for Something To Say, because that is what I do for a living. But I hate large downloads, I hate to wait for a bantop to load up (not to mention, all of the images we now have on our blogs) ... in the old days, I would click away from a site if it took more than a couple of seconds. We study and learn these things working for a website .. although, I think, many popular sites do not even consider this now because so many viewers have more bandwidth. Regardless of all of these factors, I am happy with a simple banner ... it says everything it needs to say. This is not to say that I don't enjoy all of those wonderful artful banners out there.
