I finally did it! I gave my blog a makeover! The former one actually lasted me the better part of six years. I still like it quite a lot, but I wanted something fresher and cleaner. It took a while to get all the elements right, but today I did it!
It's a slightly narrower page, with a similar triangle theme and color scheme, only a little milder and sleeker. Instead of cork I went with a subtle woodgrain (yes, it is a picture of my own floor!). And though my faithful old owl is still making an appearance, I'm also introducing a new mascot. Oh, and I made all my own social media sidebar icons to match!
Funny story… this new layout is actually a mash-up of two layouts I made but never installed. The banner is from one I made one or two years back, but didn't like the background of. And the background is very recent, but was hard to find a proper banner for. However, last night it all came together wonderfully. Like it was made for each other.
I might continue to add a few elements or do some minor tweaking these next few weeks. Since my editing software is failing me, it's actually quite hard at the moment. That, however, is a tale for another time… Today we celebrate!
