Makeover

I decided that all that green was getting me down, and in actual fact it didn't make the blog look very serious .... What do people think? Is it now a bit spartan?

Also - the font ... I've been using large Times ... Oh dear, this is the problem with makeovers, they are so confusing!

I know! And I should be working!! But actually, I think I like this ... and being able to change font colour now that it won't disappear behind the green is quite nice.

Oh - very minimalist! I can spend hours tinkering with a makeover - so tricky to get things just right! I use the same layout on my other blog as I quite like the sense of space. If you want to add colour then you could put an image in to replace the header.

Heh - hello again - obviously comments are tricky to get right too ... :-)
I may well do that - a picture of dreaming spires would do nicely!

Personally, I rather liked the serious green...put me in mind of lovely English gardens and old leather covered books, a quiet corner of an old library. And I enjoy lerger print, but that's just because I spend too much time reading bookish blogs! Perhaps the suggestion of a colorful header will satisfy us all. Above all, continue writing and sharing your thoughts. Stacey

My motive for changing was because my other blog is pretty green too, and I really felt like I needed to make a difference between the two ... Peta is very kindly making me a banner, so we'll see after that what it looks like!
Good to see you on here though - nice to meet new people!
