Way Past Time for a New Look

Were you as sick of my SIX year old design as I was? I don’t know if this is much better, but at least it’s slightly different. Unfortunately I don’t have the energy to do all the coding involved in a massive site redesign, so a small tweak will have to do. Of course, it’ll probably take me months to do all the main pages, but at least there’s something new to look at around here! And I just can’t seem to find colors I like except for green — everything else I like is too saturated. Try to find a paler version of burgundy and you just end up with pink! (And I don’t do pink.)

    Its lovely! I adore the header. Very elegant. And the colour is adorable.

    I know what you mean by burgundy just goes pink when you want it paler. I love pink as a colour but on a screen its rather insipid.

    Beautiful! Green suits your site very well. And not many websites can wear green. :)

    And as long as a site is easy to use–and yours is–why do more than tweak?

    I like it! Cool and fresh and new.

    And yes, regarding pink-ness, I know what you mean. What I do is add grey or a watered down brown. It’s not much of a burgundy, but at least it doesn’t come out pink (a color I sadly loathe).

    Very nice but quite shocking!

    You don’t do pink?
    Except in a drink!

    Kate: damn, you’re right!

    I adored your old layout and the color green. This one is really pretty too! Green is the best on the eyes, right up there with blue. ;-)

    (I never comment but I visit your site all the time, and have for literally years. I’m a big fan of it, hee hee.) ;-) So I guess this is kind of an informal introduction — I’m olde_fashioned over at LiveJournal. *curtsies*
