New Logo, New Theme

Literary Ames logo

As I’m redecorating my home bit-by-bit, I thought I might as well redecorate the blog, too.

Ye Olde Logo and green theme background were too bright. I didn’t realise this fact as I use DimScreen on my laptop to prevent migraine. Shiny New Logo is less likely to blind unsuspecting readers.

Testing out themes wasn’t fun. I pretty much hated all of them. The ever popular “Twenty Thirteen” met most of my needs, though I now worry that the blog looks like everyone else’s now. (There are 1.6 million blogs using it.) As for logos, messing about creating a new one has been long and tedious, but I finally made one that wasn’t terrible.

So here it is.

Out with the old . . .

Goodbye, Reddle.

. . . in with the new.

Hello, Twenty Thirteen.

What do you think? Have I made a major mistake?

  1. It’s a bit hard to find the comment form now (maybe the Related Items could be moved below the form, or in the sidebar?).
    Anyway, I wanted to say that maybe header would have been more interesting with a book contour incorporated somewhere in the curlicues? I like how the Ames turned out, but the Literary seems to me a bit disjointed. That’s just my opinion though 🙂


    1. Thanks for the feedback, Kay. I see what you mean about the comment form. I’m not sure what I can do to fix that. It’s a bit beyond my skill set. I have, however, been tinkering with the logo to add a book like you said. Let me know what you think.
