Phantom of the Blogpera

Okay, I know that every single one of my titles does not have to be so cheesy, but hey, I can't help it sometimes!

My newest blog crave is http://phantomprof.blogspot.com

This blog has behind-the-scenes stories about college students, actual letters from students, and stories from other professors about college students! Weee! And the stories are well written and very enjoyable to read, so I suggest stopping by.

I will admit, I spoke with Phantom Prof about the site design and the errors and she agreed to let me fix it for her. Then out of the blue I was offered a Starbucks gift card for helping and I was shocked and delighted. 15 template designs and no one has offered me anything other than a "Thanks" and sometimes not even that.

So, I created a new template for Phantom Prof despite my new rule of "No More Free Templates" and it is located here at my test site: http://www.postednote.com/happy.htm

I hope everyone realized that the minimalist piece of art at the top of the screen is a graduation cap. I am not an artist and so when I draw something I always worry about what it looks like to others. Obviously the artist sees what he wants to see, but when you are doing something for someone else, you want everyone to see the same thing!

I have to cite myself on this post, it seems that today I am in "RambleBlog" mode.

Oh, and I noticed that I got a porn spam comment on this site - Genuine are you behind that? Just Kidding G-man...

Jes, thanks for the meatballs, but I didn't do a template for you, I just placed a masthead in an existing template... and this was meant only to say something nice about Phantom Prof, not to make others feel bad. I do template design without any expectations from my friends - they set expectations on me, but I don't on them... and your meatballs are the best ever and you made them for me twice!!

I found your blog through a link from the Phantom Professor . . . Great job on her redesign. Now she has a great looking site to compliment her great content.

After reading your blog, I'll be running back to mine to see what glamor can be brought to that ugly duckling.

I totally knew that was a mortar board on phantomprof's blog. Excellent illustration. :) I'm psyched to find your blog. I'm so bored w/what Blogger has to offer in the way of templates.

Again, not true. I sent you a copy of my novel!

As usual, great work, Eddo.
