I can be incredibly unaware of my surroundings. I can walk through a place I have lived for years and think, “hey, is that light fixture new?” and of course the answer is never yes.
If you aren’t like me, you will have noticed that I have changed the look of my blog.
I am happy with this new layout and I love being able to change the header picture with each click. I’m less settled on this color scheme. Everything I thought I would like wound up too industrial, too lurid, or too Easter. I may revert back to black words on a pale background. (Actually, there are glitches in older posts and some text is black on the current background. Tsk.) But this is the new blog for now. I can’t experiment with more colors until I recover from color palette psychosis.
The most important change is that this blog design works much much better on phones and tablets. The term is responsive. This blog now has a responsive design.
I’ve learned that term and made these changes as part of the WordPress Blogging 201 challenge, which is proving quite valuable and has made it easy to tackle changes and additions I’ve meant to make for some time.
What do you think of the changes? What’s better now? What still needs work? Do you miss anything from Required Writing Mach I?
Or are you reading this because you had a typo when you searched on required wiring?
P.S. I’ve changed content too. Can you find where? Hint: check the top menus.
P.P.S. The image comes from an on-line science mag for Cambridge U., and a fascinating article on synesthesia, a condition where the senses blend together (for example, for some people, sounds come with colors). I’m almost grateful for the color palette psychosis that led me to that article…
