A Fresh Look

A change is as good as a rest. So they say. So I have decided to change my theme. The old one had begun to bore me. Do you like? Or not like? I’m not 100% sure, but I rarely am when it comes to change. I’ll run with it for a while and see if I get used to it. There’s no sidebar or footer for widgets. Any widgets have to fit in a pull down section at the top. I’m not keen on pull down sections filled with junk. So the dynamic blogroll has gone. Along with my Twitter feed. Meh. Continue reading

Mexile Reloaded

I tried, really I tried. But I just couldn’t quite completely, irrevocably fall in love with Zoren.It had it’s plus points. But it was just too cumbersome, bloated and space-wasting. We had to part. So I went looking for a new theme. I’m not sure there is a theme I am totally happy with. Pilcrow was great, but I can’t bring myself to go back to a theme with such a narrow post. This one will have to do. It’s simple, and clean. Utilitarian, almost. All the fancy stuff cut out. It has a plain-Jane menu. A raft of new headers to go with my favourite old headers. Image-less sidebar. And a homepage with excerpts rather than the full post. Opinions? Like? Prefer? Detest?

Spring Clean

The first Jacarandas are out. Tis spring, and time for cleaning. I thought I’d start with a new look for my blog. I’m not sure it’s better, but it does at least look ‘fresher’. It has pros and cons. I prefer the ‘comment’ link to be at the top of the post, as it is with this theme. And wasn’t with the last one. The text is smaller, but I prefer this font size. Those with dodgy vision might disagree. My Flickr photos can be displayed, but maybe they’re a little too distracting? I haven’t made my mind up. What do you think? Feedback is welcome.
