Had a little down time yesterday, so I played with my theme a bit.
If you read that too quickly, it might have sounded wrong. 😉
I don’t dislike the format I’ve been using (Carbon Lite). I switched to it a couple of months ago, from the simple Twenty Sixteen that the site defaulted to when I opened it in (guess?) 2016. But, sometimes, that bold yellow lettering against the backdrop of the cosmos and the black background and over-sized comment heads made me feel like I was floating in MySpace.
Not that there was anything wrong with MySpace. I like Tom. 😁
My expectation, upon experimenting, was to switch back to the Carbon Lite blackground and stylized lettering fairly quick. But, then, every time I signed on I just seemed to appreciate the simple styling of this format (called Venture) more and more. What I think I like about it is the lighter colors (I’m a pretty jolly guy), the unassuming nature of the titles and header, and the fact that the first thing you see, when you sign on, is the latest post’s graphic, dead center.
I also like how each post exists on page one in its entirety, saving the reader an extra step when initially engaging.
But it could just be the newness of it I like. Nothing thrills me like change.
What do you think, the simple nature of this, the lighter and brighter Venture? Or did you prefer my arms stretched out to the universe, with the darker, stylized Carbon Lite?
Maybe you just liked to see your big head in the comments section. 😏
Whatever you think, I appreciate the feedback. There’s a lollipop in it for each of you with an opinion, which I will hand-deliver promptly or eventually.
(This last sentence is superfluous, to get the request over the SEO-recommended 300 words. Thanks!)
