in case you haven’t noticed.
My new blog layout, that is. I figured I should at least acknowledge the change, since it’s the first time I’ve forced my blog to endure a makeover.
You should know: I am a creature of habit.
It was really hard for me to take the leap and actually change the theme — especially when I realized my old theme wasn’t available anymore. Nothing like making a leap with no safety net, you know? Nonetheless, I took the leap (obviously) and am pleased to say I’m adjusting well.
In case you are wondering why I took the leap, there are two reasons. One: dark-on-light is easier to read. Two: the fonts feel clean, the colors bright, and (I hope) the overall effect comes off as a bit more professional. The only thing I don’t love are the faint pink dots in the background. The bold pink date dots, though? Love.
Along with the HUGE theme change, I thought I’d go ahead and call your attention to some fun additions to my blogroll. Namely, the websites of Natalie Whipple, Kiersten White, Stephanie Perkins, and Laini Taylor’s über-awesome website (“Not for Robots”) for “people for whom writing is hard.” I’m loving these sites, and the people behind them — from what I gather via Twitter and their blogs — are adorable. Their posts are always helpful and amazing. On top of that, they do Twitter well. You should follow them.
Okay. I think that’s it.
Feel free to peruse things, if you’re in a procrastinatory mood. Happy writing and happy weekend!
