Oooh, Shiny New Bloginets

Fuhhhhhrrrrrresh new face!

It’s still not 100% done/ready but I had to make the damn thing live because I was starting to get sick of it. It’s only been, what, four or five days since I started working on this (in between actual, paying work) and I’m already hating the purple stuff.

It feels weird just having one sidebar but I felt it was time to get rid of some clutter; no one really cares about that LastFM widget anyway. With this, old entries are going to look dumb with its teeny tiny images. Oh well. I also took out AdSense but I might put it back in later because last I checked, I still had a whopping $44 in there!

The related posts section found at the bottom each entry has blank thumbnails because I installed the Auto Post Thumbnail plug-in and it’s taking 80 lifetimes to generate 6 years worth of thumbnails. It’s been stuck at 1% for the past hour MAYBE I SHOULD GIVE UP.

I also need to re-do my categories (something I’ve been meaning to do since last year) because shit is a mess. My links need updating, too. I could do that now but I’d rather watch K-Town!

Sooo0o0o0o0o0o let me know what you think, if the spirit moves ya. Should I keep the font PT Sans Regular or switch back to Verdana? Which one’s easier to read, I wanna know! Whachuthink about the colors, are they obnoxious, are they too soft and pastel-y etc etc.

PS: Little Miss Freakie says hi!

    I like the silhouettes and frames on your header; they’re adorable! And I like all the white space for my eyes to rest hehe. But… I am also seeing purple. On the header lang naman–the rest are really really cute and clean. (Please don’t hate meee.)
    I’m used to reading your blog with Verdana, but the new font is ok. :)

    I prefer Verdana, I think it’s more readable. Other than that, I like the new look, it’s pretty!

    Love the new layout! Gawd, how I wish I’m as creative as you are. Have to scroll to the right to view the whole sidebar though.

      Eep! What’s yer screen resolution?

      • Reply Abi September 17, 2012 at 2:23 pm

        @Helga, Oops, my bad. I just realized that I have my task bar on the side that’s why I still need to scroll to the right. Sorry.
