OK, I’ve now changed the design for this blog. I’d spent hours and hours over the weekend trying to put together a new design from scratch without much success, then thought “Why try to reinvent the wheel?”
This is a WordPress blog; there are hundreds of free WordPress themes out there, most of them readily adaptable. So I quickly found this very simple gridded design – appropriately named Simple Theme One – and just changed the header image and twiddled with the fonts and colours. Took me about thirty minutes and most of that was taken up with putting the header image (a montage of a few of my photos) together.
