I’ll be hangin’ in Baltimore between May 20-May 21 at the second annual FitBloggin’ conference. I’ve been asked to lead a session called “Design 101: Simple tips to Build a Better Blog” because of the web design work I do over at Make My Blog Pretty. I would like my session to be free of snoring and people sneaking out, so I wanted to know what any FitBloggin’ attendees out there are interested in learning.

If anyone runs into any problems with the new design, please comment on this entry with your browser and platform (i.e. Internet Exploder 7 on Windows XP). If you find anything hard to read or use, feel free to comment too.
However, if you’re running Internet Explorer 6, please don’t bother to comment at all, just upgrade already. You can get Microsoft to send you a CD for free (UPDATE: I’ve been informed it actually costs $5. Sorry!). I won’t bore you with the details why, but IE 6 is a piece of crap that has wasted literally millions of man hours around the world. Please, do [...]
