We need a new header

Ok, I think this blog has existed long enough under a generic WordPress header. It’s a very nice picture of some random bridge somewhere, but unless there is a troll lurking underneath (trolls always have to lurk, it’s very important) it isn’t going to cut it anymore.

So, I’m looking for suggestions. Does anyone have a good idea for what our new header should be? With this particular theme, it needs to be an image that is either 760 x 190 pixels or can be cropped to that size. Suggestions can include images that you already have or ones that you think you or someone else could create/find reasonably easily.

  1. We can replace this bridge with one of the many famous PDX bridges!

  2. Why did you choose the title for the blog that you chose? That story might help to determine what direction your header should go in.

    • Good question. I went with the infamous explain-the-name first post here. That will at least help explain what was rattling around in my head when I picked it.

  3. Alright, here’s what I came up with. A bridge in Portland (or so the caption told me), the thinking man, and a guy prostrated in worship.

    I doubt you’ll use it but I like playing with photoshop so it’s no big deal. 🙂

  4. This is such a nice contemplative bridge though

  5. Nick’s is cool. Would we need to adjust the current color scheme for it to work?

  6. Can I pretend that the thinking man is a troll? That would make me much happier.

  7. Your bridge-troll fetish is making me nervous.

  8. Actually, I am not sure if that is the best description since I just looked up the word “fetish”. Hmmmm, I should read the dictionary more!

  9. Why not just a picture of the seminary or something like that?

  10. C’mon, where is the creativity in that?

  11. Sadly, this is the longest thread on this blog…

    • I was just thinking the same thing. Then I started wondering if that said something about our ThM program or the quality of my posts on this blog. And then I decided to stop thinking about that and go make a cup of tea.

  12. Its OK, the longest comment thread on my blog was on evolutions–something I know almost nothing about. Sometimes the most commented upon are so simply because they are easy to comment on (there is some insight for ya!).

  13. Alright… Here’s another attempt… complete with Marc and a bridge troll! 😛

  14. That one is awesome! I vote for the one with Marc and the troll. It really represents what this blog is all about.

  15. Very nice job, Nick. The troll was a fabulous touch!
