Dear Faithful Reader,
You'll notice a brand new look here at Mokuren Dojo. Folks have told me over the years that the standard Blogger Scribe template was boring and that I'd do much better with a customized template. I've been thinking about the change for a long time now (ie a couple of years) but just haven't gotten to it until now.
The response from my long-time readers has been generally positive. Most everybody likes the minimalist color scheme with splashes of red. Several people have mentioned that the floating sidebar is disorienting and unpleasant to them, but an equal number of folks have said that it's kinda cool.
I like the new color scheme and I like how the floating sidebar keeps some naviagation and subscription links at hand all the time - but I'm not dead set on the floating sidebar, so please, try it out for a week or two and let me know if the it grows on you or not. I might be able to get it to stay at the top
And now, to the GIVEAWAY!
I really want y'all's feedback on the new theme, so please take a look around and leave me a comment telling me what you think about the shape of things here at Mokuren Dojo. You can comment below this post, or leave me a comment on Facebook. or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Leave me a comment before midnight, October 31, 2009 and at the beginning of November I'll draw the name of one lucky commenter (blog comment, email, or Facebook comment) to receive Kris Wilder's excellent book, The Way of Sanchin Kata.
