Yesterday I was talking to myself, today I’m talking to you!
I’ve spent a delightful few hours browsing through the possible ‘themes’ for my blogsite – ie the way it’ll look, the design and colours etc. It’s like choosing colours from a paint chart, and I’m no good at that either – can’t picture what it might look like in real life. Also, each theme has a name, and I find myself hugely influenced by the name rather than the look. So, the one called ‘Adventure Journal’ was very tempting, with its crafty camel and mysterious pyramids. And ‘Strange Little Town’ was straight from Bewitched, and would be a great foil for ‘Tales of the Auld Grey Toun’. There was one called ‘Clean Home’ which I liked a lot, but didn’t want to be sued under the Trade Descriptions Act, should I ever be burgled. I liked ‘Balloons’, which was nice and whimsical. But in the end I’ve opted for something called, hey, call me a poet? ‘Twenty Thirteen’. I like it because it’s bright and clear at the same time, and gives plenty scope for different topics.
Would you mind please letting me know what you think, using the ‘leave a reply’ button on the blog itself? So that I can see whether it’s all working the way it’s supposed to? If there’s a general ‘don’t like it’, I’ll browse again and change it before going too public. So, could you please give it points out of 10 (where 0 is ‘dreadful, don’t go there’ and 10 is ‘wow, love it, can I buy the video?’ for the following questions:
1 is it easy to read or did you need to go for your specs?
2 Do you like the colours?
3 How well do you think it represents me and my writing?
Yes I know it’s all subjective but that’s the way it works. The photo is a thistle in Logan Botanic Gardens, way down south past Stranraer, in Oct 2011. Thank you for being a guinea pig! And do call again soon xx
