Frequently, once I get used to the look of something, that's the way it stays. So, not that I thought I was a L33T Pro blog designer once I did my very first layout....I just like staying in a comfortable rut. "Good enough" is sometimes the way things stay.
I even changed my Twitter icon. It used to just be a cut-down version of the original blog header
I changed it to a newer picture (though still one taken in my kitchen!)
If you really dig this picture, it's also available as a button on The Elka Almanac Zazzle store!
