I recently read a new post by Dangerous Lilly that is far too amazing not to write about and comment on here. A few days ago she posted an extensive article on blog design and how important it is to maintain readability without sacrificing your individual style. I think every new and seasoned blogger should read this and take another look at their blog layout with a critical eye. Is your blog readable in different browsers? Is it easy to find important contact information, RSS feeds, and archives? Do the colours burn a hole in your retina?
Lilly discusses some important points, such as keeping your sidebars clean, not using white text on a dark background, and using plug-ins such as Firebug to check and change your CSS easily and painlessly.
