Blog Makeover

I’ve been intending for a couple of months to give my blog a bit of a make-over. I found my old theme to be a bit difficult to read. On top of that, since it was inflexible, I couldn’t brand my blog at all. So to start off 2010, I sought to give you, my loyal readers, and hopefully new ones down the road, a more adult look to go with my posts.

To that end, I’ve got a snazzy black/gray/white theme complemented by a creative commons licensed photo of a wolf howling at the moon. Snazzy!

In addition to the RSS feed button on the right, there’s now also an option to subscribe via email if you’re not an RSS user. The button to subscribe is just below the RSS feed.

I’ve also rearranged the widgets so that the tag cloud is more prominent. I think this makes for more fluid browsing than the categories, but you can still find categories farther down the sidebar.

Blogroll links have been updated with a bunch deleted and a few added.

I hope you guys like the new design as much as I do! If you’re reading in a reader, click on through to take a look.

    I love the new theme, very smart and as you said a lot easier to navigate around.

    Thanks Courtney! I’m chagrined that I stuck with a theme that I knew all along was hard to read. I kept *meaning* to change it…..talk about procrastination! Good thing 2010 came along to kick me into gear.

    Looks great! And I like that it’s remembered who I am. =)

      Glad you like it! WordPress is good about letting you change the look without changing the settings, but I’m glad to hear definitively that the settings are still working on your end.

    I think it looks nice. It’s a very clean look. Good choice. 🙂

      Grazi, Sara! (You should talk to Fran though. He doesn’t like it, lol).
