Like most bloggers, I have fallen into a horrible habit.
You see, this blog has looked pretty much the same since I started it in May. And once again I’ve started thinking to myself that I ought to change things up a little. However, I always come back to a few hard truths when my mind starts wandering:
1- The blog theme (layout) I use gives me an uncommon header because almost no one uses this theme. I’d have to pay for an upgrade to get that with another theme. This makes me special.
2- My blog theme lets me have a background image that is visible for more than a centimeter on each side of the text box. Because I can have a more unique blog this way, I am special.
3- My background image camouflages the header menu that would otherwise look like clutter. That makes the military special.
And so I realize that I should, at most, change the background photo’s color scheme and possibly the text box color. This never ends well.
Here’s the edited background photo I came up with today:
In theory, it looks good. In practice, it’s hard to find a text color that would be visible against my header and this background. So I changed the remaining color scheme and came out with something truly special. If you’d like to see some strangely attractive hideousness, check out the result at my test blog: http://www.blacklightcandelabra.wordpress.com (Warning: I’ll keep it up for a while but I can’t promise that it won’t change in a couple of weeks.)
