If you have visited my blog before, you will notice that there is a new look and feel. I was talking with a friend yesterday about the previous layout, and commented that I thought it felt a little dark. He smiled and quickly agreed. FYI — I really appreciate candor.
This is not the best example because it’s using the ‘lights’ instead of the wood background I used. I should have grabbed a screen capture of the old layout before making the change.
So, this morning I scanned through a number of templates and installed the one you see now. It feels brighter and a bit more streamlined. It also has a nice feature — in the top right corner — that allows you to expand the blog to full screen width. Click the <> and the blog will expand. Click it again and it will return to a centered layout. I am still trying to figure out why the text enlargement feature is not working. (The AA ) in the top right, as well. I suspect it may have been “lost in translation” when the theme was converted from a WordPress format.
So, give me you feedback. What do you think of this new layout?
