If you thought the new theme on my blog looked good earlier today, you should see it now after it was lucky enough to have received a complete makeover from Sue Waters this afternoon.
In a stroke of genius by James Farmer at Edublogs, Sue has begun a second blog for Edublogs called The Edublogger. It’s designed to help the writers of Edublogs’ 100,000 plus blogs become more effective bloggers. I couldn’t understand why anyone involved in education wouldn’t use Edublogs before, but now, with the addition of Sue and with all sorts of recent Edublogs upgrades, I really can’t understand not using it.
I had emailed Sue a suggestion that she might want to consider giving a “makeover” to a blog like they do to homes and rooms in some reality television series. She liked the idea and my blog ended up receiving the makeover, and I think she will be posting some before-and-after screenshots to use as teaching tool.
I’m certainly open to hearing anybody else’s suggestions for improvement, too.
Sue’s a great teacher and, in case you missed it in December, I listed her Wiki as one of The Best Places To Learn Web 2.0 Basics.
I’ve appreciated the substance of your blog for quite a while, Larry. Now it’s a thing of beauty, too! It’s not only user-friendly in terms of organization, it’s also easy on the eyes! With friends like Sue, we can all look better.
A stunning makeover Larry – great work Sue, and of course now your great resources are even better displayed. Cheers.
Love the look, Larry! I use this theme for my classroom blog and another group blog project and it’s so easy to use and navigate for students. I love the customisable header. You can check mine out (only if you WANT to, though!) at http://mrsolson.edublogs.org – it took me a long time to settle on the design, but I’m glad I chose this one!
Judy – glad you liked the makeover and it is a nice calming theme for Larry – and full credit goes to him for selecting this theme. My favourite part of the makeover is now seeing an image of Larry – because I now know what he looks like.
It is a stunning transformation. I am impressed !
Great makeover. Now I love your the look and feel of your blog, but…. the look and feel of your website!? I wonder if Sue could recommend a Larry Ferlazzo website makeover. That would be awesome!
Keep up the fantastic work!
Oops. BTW. Rarely do I recommend a commercial product that costs $. But I’ve had great success for a very low yearly fee.
I happen to love using myteacherpages.com. They provide a great look and feel with clean navigation in a dead easy to use interface. You can check out my website as an example. Two different designs won the NC Best Teacher Website Award two of the last five years.
