Playing with themes, dangerous, I know but, well, I can’t help myself.
The other days theme was dark on dark, but I liked the quote boxes, and honestly I gravitate toward the darker backgrounds. I agree with Logan that it needed color, likely in a cool photo-collage-thingy in the header–something I haven’t yet. Notice how pale this theme is in comparison (if you happened by). My only ‘eh’ with this one is the color of the font and the size of the side-bar font. I really need to become more savvy in the manipulations of these things. Anywho, thoughts, opinions, shrugs?
Also, while we are thinking about this: What do you like to see in sidebars? How much is too much. I usually try to keep things to a minimum, but what do you always look for?
* the above image is my header from my previous (non-book) blog, The Coloring Book; something I actually threw together. There’s me sleeping (the longer you look, the weirder I look; which is likely true in waking life as well), N in her TinkerBell wings, ‘The Butterfly Dress’ by Luly Yang, and Zac Posen (Fall 2008).
