    Hi TVChatten,

    I'm glad you like the article

    I'm on a quest for new layouts myself and I thought I'd share this.
    I haven't tried the grid system -- this looks handy:

    Awesome. I can create layouts as I've done it before, but I still learned a few things from this article. Goes to show you can learn something new everyday.

    Have you tried http://gomockingbird.com/ for trying different layouts? I just found this tool and really like it.

    Thanks, keystrokes, for that interesting site.
    After looking at the FAQs I did notice there might be a fee:
    Mockingbird is completely free to use during the beta period. We will make sure to give all beta users adequate notice before transitioning out of beta.

    I prefer to look for totally free resources if applicable.
    I also noticed with Mockingbird that they store one's data in an online account thus the question:
    How can I delete my account?
    Just let us know and we'll delete your account for you at any time, no questions asked. (But be certain you no longer want your account, because all your data will be irretrievably deleted!)
    I'd rather keep my site data to myself, but I thought your suggestion was interesting and it could help people to freshen up their layouts
