So the my blog host was acting up a few days ago, but it made me look around a little bit. Tried (again) to speed things up and make the pages load a little faster; I tried some stuff a month ago, but it might have slowed it down (but then I’ve been posting a lot more photos, so who knows?). I think it’s faster, but who knows.

So I removed some of the things from the sidebar, I never got the feeling a few of the things were being used. I changed the banner (it’s a snippet from the above photo) and shifted it way up, I don’t know why I never thought of moving it up before. It’s another sunset picture, but it fit well (with the title and search box), so it’s not a drastic change.

So I’ve got a new theme. I figure I have to mention it because if you just read the RSS feed, you’ll never see it.

themejune2009.pngIt’s pretty much the Simple Indy theme by India Fascinates. It really reminds me of a few other themes out there, but it handles my long categories, works well on Mac, was easy to modify, it’s zippy and it works really well.

I’ve modified it a bit here and there to fit my needs but it’s pretty close to the original code. I like titles on all my archive pages and added my header image. I also changed the way it marked posts with the tags and categories. I also like full posts, if it’s the main page, archive or search results. And I like error messages to come with a search box. So other than that a few other minor changes it’s 99% the original theme. I still need to integrate my old logo into it…

If you see any problems, please let me know.

The photo will probably be changed soon, but it was one of the first ones I tried that fit okay. Currently it’s a view of the Pacific from Quepos, Costa Rica. I think maybe December of 2006 (New Years Eve,I think). If it’s not a picture of the coast with two tree trunks (like the thumbnail), then I changed it to something else ;)

I liked my old theme but it just loaded too slow and it had been bugging me for a while.

So I changed my theme, I’ve wanted to for a while, but hadn’t get around to it. So after messing around with it for a while, I gave up and used an old fall theme.

So I’m watching a rerun of Las Vegas on TNT and when they started the intro I was ready for the Elvis song they play (“a little less conversation…”) and I got something totally different. I wonder if they didn’t want to pay the rights for the syndication or what…?

I like the leaf motif and the colors but what I really wanted was something more green (this brownish stuff isn’t summer-ish enough for me) if anyone has a good green leafy background please let me know…

Dawn’s site, breakdAwn, has only been up for ten or so days now and she’s already changed the layout three or four times. That’s not to say she hasn’t been writing, just that’s she’s gotten into this. Now who else can I recommend this to..?

So I’ve been messing with a new look again. New colors and a slightly new format. I like it better than the oddly-pinkish colors that I had before…

On the front page I do the date differently. I did not implement this on the other pages yet because I was having some formatting problems on some browsers (i.e. IE) and if I still have problems, I don’t want a bunch of broken pages.

I’m looking for some tiles for the background with a more digital/geeky look. Any suggestions?

So I’m not liking these new colors on the blog. But I’ve been fussing with them for a while so they are staying for a few days, I’ve been liking this red so I thought I’d like the look. I know the background isn’t the most masculine but I didn’t think trying to contrast the colors was going to look so non-masculine. It was either too pink or too pukey…

So I’ve been working on changing my blog look. It’s not significant but I want to take some baby steps since I’m always worried about breaking it. I’ll be doing a few more changes, but I’m not sure how much. I’ll have to see how it turns out and how it looks on other browsers. If this looks funny to anyone please leave a comment about “funny how” and what browser/computer you are using. My biggest concern is the text from the left column running under the right column.

I know the ‘leave a comment’ areas look a little goofy, I’ll clean them up later.

I was bouncing around looking at other blogs and noticed how similar mine still looks to some others. One I went to was a simliar duplicate…. Well, the fun is in the doing.
