I’ve been thinking about doing a few adjustments to the design for quite a while.
When I started blogging I did some research and gathered that the K2 theme for WordPress was easy to use.
So I grabbed that one and haven’t really done much more design-wise since then.
Mainly I’ve felt for some time that the blog needed to be a bit wider and contain more space to put things in. I also wanted the design to feel more open. The old one felt a little cramped sometimes.
So I reverted to how I used to do websites about popgroups like New Order. This was back in 1999 or something like that. Before anyone did much blogging. Back then I used to take inspiration from design magazines and newspapers rather than other popular sites. I liked a lot of white space and a few thin and dotted lines to separate the clean design. So that’s what I gone for this time too as I’ve readjusted John TpÂ´s excellent theme TripleK2 to my own needs.
I’ll tinker with design from time to time during the next few weeks and probably add a few new things. Let me know what you think about the new theme in the comments. And if you find a problem please let me know in the comments or via email.
