A much needed, very overdue makeover to Flowing Waters

The look on my blog has been unchanged for the past 26 months. To be honest, I never really cared about the look. The blog was simply something I liked to do. But now that I've been exposed to a myriad of blog looks through the Outdoor Blogger Network, I realize how anemic mine really was. So, I decided to do a face lift. Nothing drastic - just the equivalent of a nose job and a tummy tuck. So far , I think it's OK. PLEASE let me know your thoughts, particularly if you think it sucks.

The other component to the makeover was a much needed re-creation of my Blog List. I broke down my one previous list into 4 lists - one for Fishing Blogs, one for Fly Fishing Blogs, one for General Outdoor Blogs, and one for Photo and Art Blogs. There are a lot more blogs listed than there used to be, and there are many more noteworthy ones who are not found here. Yet.

Oh man...I enjoyed Flowing Waters' retro style. Seriously, new format looks good.

I'm much relieved to find Lunkerhunt is still under "general fishing." I haven't completely abandoned my roots.

I really like it. My blog is constantly changing. I'm waiting for a new banner and then I'll go through it all again.

Looks good. I think it is time for me to do the same.

Flowing Waters is looking real darn good if you ask me. I think us bloggers can stay with one look too long and people don't come by our blogs just to read. They come to look around too! So a "redecorating" really helps out.

I like the new look, Wolfy! And like Kari said, I like how you categorized the blog roll.

I'm one of those people who likes to change things up with the look of my blog. It's more me just getting bored with things than anything else. I recently had a custom skin done by Foremost Hunting so I can't change things like I could with the Blogger templates. We'll see how long I can go before I get the "itch" to change it up.

Nice job! It looks good!
