I took the plunge

Update: So, not being content with leaving well enough alone, I’ve tinkered a bit and added 4 custom header images. These are rotating images, so every time you come to the site, there will be a different header image. They are:

  1. The signing of the Constitution
  2. The old header with Gideon in it
  3. The Constitution itself
  4. A scene from a trial at the Old Bailey

It should liven things up a bit. Hope you like it!

In addition, Recent Posts and Recent Comments are now in a tabbed box in the far right sidebar. You can switch between the two with ease. It saves space and looks kinda nifty, too! I have set it to display at random, so don’t get confused if you show up on time and it opens recent posts and the next time it opens recent comments.

Thanks to those who have left comments thus far. If there’s anything that was part of the old design, but that you find missing in the new design, leave a comment and let me know. I’ve tried to port everything, but I may have forgotten something.

Original post: As you can see (hint for those using readers: come to the site!), I’ve changed the theme on the blog after 1 year and 3 months. I like this new theme because it’s different, but not too different from the old one. I’ve kept some elements from the old design – like the header – and still have been able to change it up a bit! I’ve thought about changing the theme several times in the past, but this is the first time I’ve actually felt like it was worth it. I came close a few times, but this one leaves me happy. I hope you like it too. Many thanks to Marie for all her help. Now, since it is 3 a.m. here on the East Coast, I will go to sleep.

This song goes out to Miranda:

      I decided to keep the old banner – to give it some continuity and to blend in with the theme and color scheme. Maybe if I can figure out how to rotate banners, I’ll do that.

    Love it!! Particularly like the Old Bailey. Was completely sick of looking at Gideon. Every now and then he peeks at me out of the closet (due to my vast wardrobe of PD t-shirts) and I have a button of him on my bulletin board. He was rapidly overtaking Rachel Ray on my list of overdone faces….

    Good job.

      I have a few of those t-shirts. My favorite is the one with Gideon – the grey one.

      Now Rachael Ray on the other hand… she was cute for about 5 minutes.
