    Hello, I’m Francesco and I’m Italian: excuse my English; I am redesigning my blog.
    This is a demo: http://www.daguanno.it/restyling/

    There is still work.
    Who do you think ?

    Thanks to all.

    Design is solid but just change little things like:

    Headers
    Menu – stylise it
    Seperate blog articles

    My favorite part is how the whole shell of the site stays fixed and scrolling down only scrolls the main content area. To be blunt, the header just isn’t very exciting. Perhaps darken it up so it makes the darkness of the sides, and have that reflection fade completely out before touching the bar. The left sidebar needs some styling love too =)

    Good luck, let us know when you do more work on it!

    Wow! I love this technic of the scrolling div! Im gone steal it :twisted:

    I have to be contrary here and say that I don’t like how everything stays in one place as the blog scrolls—reminds me of frames, which are terrifying. I do agree with Chris though: you need a better header, and the sidebar could use some styling.

    Then again, this looks like an early design to me, so I look forward to seeing the final product.

    I agree with you: the header is not exciting, I will try to do better.

    You are right, but I do not want to exaggerate with the style; I want to give great importance to the contents of the blog. I use the fixed elements in order to give importance to the main. In that way I could increase the styling of the sidebar ? I need your examples (for example you could send me the link) …

    You have the right, but this is only the home page of the blog. Next week, I translate everything in English so understand better what I wrote in the menu, I also add some demo pages.

    You are a robber! I am joking! Thanks!

    You reason this technique recalls the iframe, but I do not use it for design, but to improve the usability of the blog.

    I thank you. I asked your opinion for this very reason. I hope that the final product is beautiful and usable.

    I have updated the style of menu navigation and other styles blog.
    I translated the menu in English language.

    Looks a little too web2.0 for my taste. Also consider cutting back on the boarders between elements, they seem a little unnecessary. Fixed positioning will not work in IE6, witch is a bitch but they still have 30% market share.
