Is it time for a new look?
No, I’m not referring to myself. If I was, the answer would be pretty simple. I’ve been overdue for a new look since…well, since high school probably. So, you can keep your comments about how I look to yourself.
My question is about the look/design of the blog. Yesterday, I began reflecting on the future of this blog by asking, “Is it time for a new name?” Thanks for all the great feedback. I haven’t made any decisions yet, but you’ve given me plenty to think about.
Today’s question has to do with the look and feel of the blog. Since the header is the first thing you see, let’s begin there. There’s a bit of a story behind our current header. It all started with the fact that the generic image for this header had a bridge in it. When I thought it was time to have our own header, I put out a call for suggestions and commented that any header with a bridge needed to have a troll in it. After a lengthy and fun discussion (see here, here, and here), we had a new header (graciously designed by Nick Norelli) complete with its own allegorical explanation. That header has served us well for a while, but I’d like to know what you all think. Is it time for something new?
I’m also thinking about changing the basic theme/design of the blog. We’ve been using the same theme since the blog started and I’d like to switch to something a little more flexible. If you have any thoughts on the overall look and feel of the blog’s theme, I’d appreciate hearing them.
