I've taken some flak for using a Blogger template instead of an original design for this site. "Your blog looks just like so-and-so's," people have said.
Tough. I like the green, gardeny template, and I'm trying to keep this blog as simple as possible because I already have a monster website where I've been "creative". This blog is about the daily posts, not winning design awards.
But if you're publishing a book, you might want to think twice about using a stock photograph on your cover. Here's why:
After "I Believe": Experiencing Authentic Christian Living, by Mark D. Roberts (Baker Books, 2002.)
The Limits of Enchantment, a novel by Graham Joyce (Atria, 2005.)
Thanks to the ever-alert Joe Carter over at The Evangelical Outpost for pointing this out.
