It's a work in progress: just added my first header. I also added a blog, and am trying to make the site match the blog...at least somewhat.

If you click a gallery you'll see it switch back to a white template/ outline. I didnt bother to go change all the specific galleries yet b/c I wanted to know some ideas before I go to all the work... in case I change it.

So primarily front page and blog. You can critique the organization and the photos if you need to as well. I dont like the buttons on the page one bit but dont know how to fix that....
I might change the header to just my logo but I wasnt sure. I do feel the nature pic is not very congruent with the sports gallery.

I really like the header, great job! You could always place the current header on your Nature gallery.

BTW, I really hate SM's gallery display!

Thanks, I dont like the display either, it can be difficult to work with. Later on I thought I remembered something about a different header on each page but I have no idea how to do that. I guess that's what I'll be learning next :)

Your header is very appealing to the eye, great choice of the different colors working together.
Also like the way you presented your name. is it a logo , or is it a script font.

Thanks Bianchi, I just wrote my signature with a marker and had someone draw it. I actually wrote it a little nicer than I normally would have lol. I emailed smugmug to see if they can tell me how to put a different header on each page...as I may change it for each of the categories at top. Right now I just had set up my blog and wanted it to match. Thanks again!

I don't know if you are doing maintenance, but the link doesn't come up for me (I've tried it several times).

Jason, you can try directly: abbymalone.smugmug.com Not sure what's going on with the link. I'll check it.

Thanks, that link worked just fine. But, then on your site the only link that worked was for facebook and the redirect at the bottom (although the image link was broken and just shows up as a red x). Sorry :(

I think things are working again. I am guessing the blog problem was due to godaddy going down. I read it went down kinda slowly and I was building another landing page before the issue with this site and that had problems when I was working on it.

Someone left a comment on the blog so I think it's all good. Thank you. Smugmug emailed me how to make a separate header for each page so I'll prob read up and learn how to do that this week or this weekend!
