Today’s assignment: try out at least three other themes — even if you’re happy with yours. Try one you’re drawn to, and one you’d never use. Via The Daily Post’s Blogging 101 program (17th September 2014)
I’m not doing this today and I shall tell you why. It’s not just because I’m a stubborn one.
I love my theme at the moment. I try new ones most weekends when I’m faffing about on my blog and I’ll always try the newest one for size. I always revert back to this one or the classic, Runo Light. I also have a soft spot for Greyzed and Elegant Grunge.
I love crisp minimalism on my blog and I love to see that on the blogs I read. Some of the blogs I adore most are just very simple in their design which means that their words and images stand out all the more. No smoke and mirrors, just crisp pale backgrounds and sharp words.
My blogging pet hate is having to strain my eyes to make out a sentence. Block coloured backgrounds and white writing just give me a migraine.
So, I’m staying as I am for now thank you. This theme is like my current favourite dress and I’m working it like Bey.
Here’s this picture of The Goose being encouraging though. That’s something, right?
UPDATE: I did actually go away and think about this and ended up clearing my sidebars of junk. Much as I love Instagram and Goodreads, people don’t necessarily care what I’m currently reading or what I ate for breakfast last Saturday. So I had a clear out and I think it looks better. Yey!
