Oh, there were a lot of things that I liked about the old look. It was kind of aquatic, which seemed a good fit for a blog with the word fish in the title, I liked the green links on the blue background, the dual custom menus were great, and the transparent elements were super cool.
And yet it was, at least for me and a few other people I’ve talked to, too hard to read. The small white font on the busy background…let’s just say that reading a blog should not be a chore for the reader.
So, I’ve spent hours tinkering with the available WordPress.com themes, messing around with all the customization features, never did find anything that I LOVED, but opted for this simple, clean design.
Now, back to work!
