A New Look

So! I have been bored by the look of this site for a while, but until a few weeks ago, had no ideas or inspiration for how to re-imagine it. I knew it had to be stripe-ier, more colorful… and more current. Here’s what the site has looked like since about August 2011:
Which was fine, but I have wanted something jazzier for a while. Luckily, stripes are not above my (very mediocre) Photoshop talent level.

Here’s the new look, if you’re viewing this from a feed reader:

Pam helped me out with some social media icons, which I re-colored. I updated the About page a bit, and added sidebar links to my current and recent projects (Project Life, my 52 weeks of no color photography project for 2013, as well as older projects like 30 Before 30 and Handmade52). I have also added links to a few of my favorite posts from years past, since I enjoy reading those on other blogs.

I overthink this blog, sometimes; I know I’m not a big fish, and I mostly write for myself. But just like Project Life is worth the energy because it’s about preserving memories, writing here is worth it for me for the same reason. And having a look I’m jazzed about just makes me want to be here more. And I really do want to be here.

    Me too. Me too!

    I love the new layout.. It’s very bright and colorful!

  2. I’m so happy that you posted your comment on Flux Capacitating and duuuude–I just fell down a Project Life rabbit hole for the last 30 minutes. I’m definitely intrigued! πŸ™‚

  3. I like the update a lot. Stripe-ier and more colorful sounds like your style. And it’s always nice to have a place to collect your thoughts, log memories so you can keep them clear when your mind works against you and somewhere to call your own πŸ™‚
