Update: I made a layout!

OMG.

I just finished (more or less) coding my first ever LJ layout from scratch. It was kind of exhausting, and took the better part of the past three days, graphic making included.

The easy part was getting the overall shapes in place. That took only an hour or so. What were really time consuming were all the little tweaks--getting everything to line up just so, changing the colors of links and headings and mouseovers. It's still not 100% done, as the Archives page looks a little wonky and I'm quite satisfied with the sidebar. But it's pretty much done.

So go, look! Tell me what you think!
