Every now and then I have to scratch my blogger’s itch: New colors, new widgets, new fonts and all the like are remedies for a certain boredom caused by everyday the same ol’ look.
Today’s redesign is not only about such bagatelles. For quite some time I’ve searched for a way to combine thematic coherent series and those images that get captured during everyday’s errands. Martina has her “scrappress”, Carl Weese resorted to WPII and Tyler Monson sometimes completely reorders his posted images in ora2, ora4 and originalrefrigeratorart.
I didn’t want to add new blogs – one self-maintained wordpress is enough – and after some trial and more errors I decided to install a sub-blog for the spillover. And when refurbishing the whole thing, a static front page with changing lead images looked appealing to me, together with a very clear and sober design. Thanks to the GPL on the wordpress “sundance” theme, I was able to build a child theme on top of it and adapt it to my needs, and I hope I am not the only one who likes the new look.
The daily blog can now be reached under the url markus-spring.info/blog/, whilst the spillover has its home under spillover.markus-spring.info and markus-spring.info/spillover/. Enjoy (and, if necessary, adapt your bookmarks)!
