Yesterday, I finally came to the conclusion that checking the lost & found section of craigslist every 5 minutes was not only obsessive, but also unhealthy. I needed a distraction, so I decided to bite the bullet and get to work on changing up the blog.
Despite my reluctance and aversion to change (and the stress of trying to get the new layout to not only look good, but also function well), the new template is starting to grow on me. I can do more with this layout and the plug-ins that wouldn’t work before are installed and working beautifully on this template. There are certainly more tweaks to be made, but they are minor and I’m probably the only one neurotic enough to even notice.
I decided to create a watercolor version of my logo. The other version is more representative of my mixed-media collage work, and honestly, I have kind of gotten away from that lately. I feel like the watercolor version works better with the new layout and the current direction that my work is taking. Any thoughts/opinions on the new look would be greatly appreciated.
This new layout has also made it easier to add more links. I want to be able to share more great art sites/blogs and the old layout was making it sort of difficult to do that. I have been working on a list of sites, but I still have a lot more to add.
As I mentioned, there is more work to be done. I would love any input that anyone might have on how things are arranged now and whether or not there are any issues with the new design. Feel free to leave a comment…
