Am I Completely Crazy?

First Draft:

SoI have plenty of friends and what-not who have blogs of their own.

And I was wondering.....

What do all of YOU think of the layout of:

"From The Dorm Room"

I scrolled through the pages and pages of text and thought....

Wow, I am so unprofessional

But I guess the question really goes to you.

I'm known for adding GIANT words and unnecessary color to my blogs..

But does that take away from what I'm saying or make it more interesting?

Believe me:

There's a method to my madness.

I always figured: I write for a paper and I know people get blocks of text everyday.


Whether it's:
  • Reading the newspaper,
  • Doing homework,
  • Reading a book,
  • Anything really


So I figured I'd kind of put on a show....make the page pop out and look crazy.

But I don't need to do that.


HOMEWORK: Comment and tell me what you think!

Jeff your blogging style is unique. I think you should only change it if you are uncomfortable with it.

I second Kelly's statement.

In fact, I've been trying to think of a way to make mine more unique. But I have to find my own thing. You have yours.

Seriously, Jeff, I love your blog. It's easy to read and it's not boring in the slightest and, also, as you said, such an awesome break after blocks of text ALL. BLOODY. DAY. :)
