tweaks all week

…likely anyway.

I’m pleased enough with the majority of my work on the blog, but obviously still have a few tricky bits to iron out on the images within posts and the static pages. It’s still a very viewable site, but will be better by the end of the week. I’ve been staring at the code for too many hours today and need to chill out for the evening now.

I’ve browser tested for Safari, Firefox, Firefox PC and IE 6 PC. So far so good… Expect older posts / comments to look a tiny bit strange. Overall, I hope you enjoy the new look!

  1. Okay, I understand your desire for change, but…I liked the old blog better. I liked the pictures and color at the top. The whole thing was funky, friendly, said come on in and stay awhile. I honestly don’t mean to offend you, but this one has no excitement. Your posts are never boring, but this new stuff doesn’t do them justice. If this was my first visit, I’d probably take a quick glance and move on. It looks more like a textbook than a “guess what’s running through my head today”. It looks more like a button down Oxford shirt than an open-necked shirt with lots of colors and hula girls. Again, I don’t want to offend, girl, but where did your punky, funky, free spirit go? This is just too neat and subdued. My apologies for saying your baby looks like a monkey to me. What do I know. Could be I just don’t like change.

  2. Thanks for the comment Ginny. Yes, it is a dramatic departure from the last look, but that was the point. I needed another colour scheme, another layout and a totally different look.

    I’ve changed the look of my blog several times over the past couple of years but was in a rut where I only changed the header graphic on the old layout. This time I’m overhauling the whole thing. The “punky, funky, free spirit” is alive and well but remember, it’s the content that matters most. I looked at this layout as a more grunge and industrial look without being over the top. I’m still tweaking it, but the basic look is set. I was really tired of the last layout. Plus, that layout (although I’d customised it slightly) was the default WordPress template. That means most people have it. (You should see my wardrobe- though I’ve had blue, green and red hair- most of my clothes are earth tones and black.)

    Sorry it doesn’t please you, but I do hope you’ll still keep coming back. As with all layouts and colour schemes, this too will get boring and I’ll mix it up again, but for now I really like it. I hope you become more fond of it too. 🙂

  3. Of course, I’ll keep coming back. I always enjoy the content. Yesterday was a really bad day for me, and I’m afraid I let my grumpiness wander about where it didn’t belong.
