I’m messing about with the design of the blog, and rather than following supposed ‘good practice’ – which would mean experimenting with something off-line, and only revealing it to the readers when complete – I have decided to try things out in full view of you, the consumers of the blog.

This approach suits my working style. I like tinkering around and, although I want to aim for perfection, I enjoy the process of inching towards it . . .

So, what do you think? Any comments or suggestions?

    Hmmm, I don’t think I have a very good eye for this sort of stuff so i’m probably not the best person to comment, but as no-one else has I thought I would! I like that you can see more posts so you can scroll through them a little easier, I like the access to the pictures more. Other than a change in background and colour I can’t really spot any other changes, but as it was before, it looks just fine to me….

      Thanks for comments! Interesting that the changes are not obvious – and in many ways that’s really good. One possibly important one was a significant increase in width of the text area, along with a larger font size. The updated software also (apparently) handles iphone viewing better . . . . but as (unlike you and Nikita who has also commented) I don’t have one, so haven’t been able to check. 😉

    I like having photos, calendar, archives on the right and the posts on the left. Also like the top photo banner and the links to move to next and previous post. I’d rather not have the “continue reading” link, just the full post visible. My personal prefs, of course 🙂

      Thanks for feedback. I’ve messed a bit more with the photo banner, but it’s still not right (Val thinks the dharma wheel needs to be changed somehow, and I think I need to take another photo specifically for the purpose).

      We have the continue reading links for a selfish purpose – it enables us to know which posts have been read, which would not be possible if they were all on one page.
