I don't think it's hard to see that the place has undergone a change in appearance. For a start it's a lot brighter around here. I've also come up with a new banner image. It's not the one I really wanted, but it's pretty much the best that I could come up with on my own, given what I wanted to do. That was to have a cartoonised picture of me talking with a speech bubble around the name of the blog. I kind of want an animated picture of me to basically be my "logo", for lack of a better term.
I don't know if this change is permanent. It looks alright, but I have basically no design experience or even skill. I wanted a more professional and welcoming looking place, which is kinda hard to do given some of the widgets I have down the side there. So I think I can pretty much give up on that one. Basically I want to turn this place into what I would consider an official website for me as an author, and my books. A lot of authors have websites and I already had a website, so I didn't see the point in getting another separate one.
It certainly looks a lot more welcoming in my opinion. It almost definitely seems way too simple for me. But hey, I guess I kind of need to keep it simple for what I want. Actually a lot of websites are pretty simple looking. They have to be. Fang is pretty great at designing websites and his blog is very simple looking. Knowing him it's packed with a ton of code though.
Well for now enjoy the new look and let me know what you think. It only took about five minutes to throw together. All I actually did was change the template. Though, speaking of Fang again, do you remember the last time I created a banner? I would have blank space in the picture that Blogger would replace with the colour white. It happened again and it really limits my design choices. Do you remember the code?
Yes folks, I just put a little personal message to Fang in a post. That's interactivity right there!
