A new beginning

A friend of mine (you know who you are) had pointed out to me once that she found the font size rather small on my blog to read. Hence, I don’t think she even reads my blog. Increasing the font size alone was not the solution.  The balance of the pages would be skewed if I were to do so. Therefore, the whole look had to be changed. I have always admired the Thought Catalog theme with its big fonts, content focus, clean and minimalist look. Since I was thinking of changing the theme of this blog, I was quite excited to see that one of the recently released WordPress blog themes, Book Lite, mimicked the Thought Catalog theme in many ways. I had to have it. Plus, it’s New Year, why not a new theme to start it off?

Obviously changing requires some adjusting so you may not find the same items in their regular places. All the items that were on the right sidebar earlier now can be found at the bottom of the homepage. A couple of items like the contact ID, Disclaimer, Plagiarism Alert and CC License have been moved (appropriately, I think) to the About Me page.

I have removed two pages (on my My Pages list) which I thought was not adding value anymore: On Dreams and On Food. I may choose to bring them back if I have anything substantial to say on those two topics in the future.

Other than that, nothing has changed in this blog. I will still be talking about what interests me in 2013. So, do continue to visit. Oh, what do you think of the whole new look?

  1. Bah! When I read the blurb on the phone, “friend of mine (you know who you are)” I was hoping it was something about me. Then I read the “she” and the world around me collapsed. Times New Roman is not my favourite font – but I like well spaced out content – therefore the new look on Gaizabonts. (Short story, I like the look) Personally, since I use Readability, I *usually* don’t complain of fonts and backgrounds nowadays. BTW, in your blogroll, would you consider featuring http://livingalife.wordpress.com instead of Selaphor? Thanks! :D

    • Atul, you make me laugh! @”World around you collapsed!” Arre! I have to thank you. Actually it all started after I saw your blog’s new look. Thanks! Oh, thank you! I didn’t know about Readability till like now. :P Oh, absolutely! Selaphor out, Living a life in. Give me a minute though. I am writing this *before* the change.

  2. I’m here! I’m here! I’m here! The fact that I’ve been able to reach your blog itself is a feat. Oh! Does that make me sound like the friend who complained about the font? :-P
    The new look is great. Lovely beginning to the New Year. :-)

Let me know what you think.
