It Was Time For a Change

There comes a time with most things when it is time for a change. Clothes wear out, appliances give up, websites can look tired, and sometimes it’s just nice to “spruce” things up.

I’ve felt that way for a while now about my blog, and I did actually change it about 3 months ago, though I’m sure none of you saw it, as it only lasted all of a day. The reason was that I missed the old look, as well as not being able to customise it as I had expected. So the need for a change was there.

So what do you do on a quiet at-home Saturday night (particularly one when Trove is down)? Well, I’m not sure about you, but I spent it browsing blog template themes. I tend to use those on the Elegant Themes site for mine. Anyway  I found one that looked neat, was readable, and still bold – all features I consider important.

So I took the plunge, downloaded the theme, and uploaded it to my blog. Then I spent last night tweaking it – and I must say that I’m still happy with this one, so I expect it to stay.

In making the change, I have also update my categories a bit. Afterall, with over 200 posts, things can get a little out of hand if you don’t keep your categories in check – but they’re all tidy now.

So subject to this template working as I expect (and hope) it will, I’ll stick with it! 🙂

  1. Thanks for changing to a black font on a white background. Much easier on the eyes. 🙂

  2. Hear, hear, Janelle. Alona, your blog was so hard to read with that black background. I can now read it in comfort :-))

    Cheers, Jill

    Looks great, Alona. Mind you I liked the old one too.

      Thank you Jenni. While I do really like the new look, I do actually still miss the old one too. And I’m glad to know I wasn’t the ONLY person who liked it.

  4. Love it Alona! It’s so much easier for my ageing eyes to read than the black which I always found a struggle. I like your headers and think the whole presentation is very professional. Well done!
