After having just watched a TiVo'd episode of SNL last night, I decided to look around online and see if I could find a digital copy of one of Amy Poehler's best skits (I eventually did).

While searching, though, I came across Don't Shake the Baby, a blog hosted by Blogger with a very eye-catching design. It reminded me of some of the samples I had seen contributed by the likes of Zeldman and Shea and Cederholm back when Blogger had its big relaunch.

I couldn't quite put my finger on it, though, and I didn't want to count out the blog's owner right off the bat, so I decided to view source. It was there that I saw the following:

Blogger Template Style
Name: Thisaway (Rose)
Designer: Dan Rubin

I decided to mosey on over to SuperfluousBanter and have a look around. What I found was a gem of a web design containing some pretty interesting content. The tagline is definitely true, the content is more important than the name implies. I'd consider subscribing, but it doesn't look like the site's maintainer, Dan Rubin posts very frequently.

Nevertheless, the design is refreshing to see, and Dan gets props for, at the very least, creating an eye-catching Blogger template that anyone can call their own (until someone peeks into the source, that is).
