Typepad is no longer the best looking blogging platform. It hasnt been for a long time. You may have noticed that i cleaned up my blog last month and for the past few weeks i have roadtested some new templates with Typepad. I dont know what it is but Typepad templates are not even half as good looking as their equivalents in wordpress. Needless to say, I have scrapped them all and gone back to a basic template with access to the html code. They way i have been doing it for the last 4 years. Not as fancy, but i do like a clean look. Expect me to start loading up a few goodies over the next few weeks.
