Notice something different? I’m trying out a new look for the blog with this theme. I do so hope this appeals to your refined senses.

Oh, and in case anyone missed it: there were two extra updates last week. Although if you missed them, you’ll probably miss this…I did not think this through…

More theme talk after the jump.

Ye Olde Theme...e?

There’s a big divide about preferences of dark or light site designs. I did try to go for a middle ground of a dulled, non-blinding background colour with black text – which the Coraline theme will allow. But it somehow clashed with the images on the blog and I can’t quite explain this.

Searing brightness versus sheer darkness.

The new theme is darker, but it does have much better text contrast, bigger text and more noticeable separations between posts. It is annoying that the sidebar/widget content has been relocated to the end of the page and ideally I wish I had bigger text with wider posts. Nevertheless, everything should be more readable overall.

Hopefully this change is an improvement. I’d appreciate any comments or emails to let me know what you think.

  1. Hey a better comment box

  2. Seems a bit bland and lifeless compared to the old one to be honest.
    I do prefer the new text colors though.
