The Black and Blue Blog is looking for your help!

I'm always thinking of new ways to improve this blog, generate more readers, and make it more user friendly.  After all, without your support, I'd probably be talking to myself.  Well, maybe Nate and I would be talking to ourselves.  One thing I've been thinking about the past couple of months is replacing the current blog banner/header with something new and improved.  Basically, it would be a graphics banner that would include the name of this blog, with graphics obviously related to the Lincoln Stars (and maybe even David Reekie). :)

I know there are a lot of folks out there who are computer savvy enough to put together a banner graphic.  As for myself, I'm just not that smart. I don't know the first thing about Photoshop, or any other graphics software.  Sooooo...I thought I'd open this up to my readers and see if there is anyone out there who has the free time, and the smarts to put together a new banner graphic for the Black and Blue blog.

I'm open to anything, really.  I know that the image would have to be at the most 660 pixels wide.  Apart from that, there really aren't any limitations or restrictions.  I'm also open to utilizing more than one header/banner graphic.  If I receive more than one graphic that I really, really like...I'll use both.  Maybe change them up every week, or month.  Or maybe I'll open it up to the readers?  I could pick up to 5 graphic headers and put them to a vote?  There are a number of ways I could handle this.  I'm obviously still in the planning stages, so again...I'm open to anything. I may even throw in a prize for the best graphic...who knows.

If this is something you would be interested in doing, please feel free to send your submission(s) to the email link below.  I will respond to ALL submissions.  If you have any questions about graphical content or ideas, send me an email and I will get back to you. 

Thank you!


Note:  I hope to post a pregame report for the Tri-City game (Teddy Bear Toss!) sometime tonight.  Stay tuned for that.

hey yeti, i have an idea.. lets get the guys from the LJS to change things here and see how that works!!!
ok seriously, i also am not able to be creative, my stick figure drawings probably would not fit in the banner.
im sure that the followers will come up with something good.
and as far as promotion.. do you think we could get a poster to put up at the ice box??
something with tear off tabs at the bottom, with the web blog address, kindof like what you would see on campus and places..
i missed the last meeting tuesday but i will try to contact the booster club as well as the stars office.
