The husband of a Jane Austen reader of my blog, Jane Austen's World, wrote to say that " She found it funny that another person had the same - if not better - idea for that banner, although mine is still a work in progress."
I hurried over to his blog, Vague Rant, and found his re-interpretation of the misty scene to be ironic and original. I wrote back to say that Jane would have found this situation funny, which is why I am such a big fan of hers. He agreed. Both banners evoke what our blogs are about.
Another blog had changed the same generic scene into a GIF image with branches swaying in the wind and leaves falling. I was unable to reproduce that image (or recall which blog had made the change.) Upon seeing it three years ago, I realized that I could alter the banner to suit the theme of my blog.
Have you noticed similar alterations? Inquiring minds want to know.
