I always felt I had a small problem with the theme for this site.
It was a lovely theme, but I always had a feeling that because it was so good, it somehow got in the way of the content. Was the site here because I liked the look of it, or because I had something to say?
I have decided to switch to a new theme. I’m not saying that this theme is any worse than the last one, but I feel it concentrates more on the content, rather than just shouting “look at me, amn’t I beautiful”.
I have a few tweaks to do to it yet. I have already darkened the text, and I want to increase the font size a little. I had an interesting time setting Windows Live Writer to reflect the new theme as it is a complex one. It is essentially two themes – the base theme is Desk Mess Mirrored, but there is a child theme installed on top of that – Desk Mess Multi, which provides one or two extra knobs. I had to revert to the base theme before I could get WLW to reflect the theme, and then set the site back to the child again.
So far, I like it, but then it has only been up for a couple of hours. Time will tell.
