And The Blog Gets Another Makeover

I have been very inconsistent in blogging lately. Just 11 posts since July. I finally decided to give a makeover to my blog, in the hope of getting inspired to write again. The gray-black theme had started to feel as sickly as my physical health. So I wanted some color here. I wanted 'yellow', to be precise. And so, my blog is yellow now.

Have a look...



By the way, it's not just the aesthetics that have changed. The sidebar on the right has a tabbed section now, for "Trending posts", "Tags", and "Archives". It makes the sidebar look even less-cluttered than it was earlier. Here's a screenshot...



Most importantly, this new template is responsive in design.  It means that the content will adjust automatically to the screen-size of the device you're viewing the blog on (i.e. laptop/desktop/tablet/smart phone etc.) I haven't got a screenshot for this though. So you'll have to check it out.

In other news, this blog completed nine years earlier this month, my shop completed two, and I have completed four years in Jaipur.

I really wish I'd start blogging regularly again. In fact, I wish I'd blog daily in 2016. Wouldn't that be just amazing? Ok maybe it would be a bit too much for my readers, but it's one of the things on my "10-things-to-do-before-I-die" list, and I wish I'm able to strike it off at the end of 2016.

Anyway, you guys check out my new blog design in the meantime, and tell me how it looks.

I'm a fan of yellow and reckon it has a positive feel. I do miss the orange pumpkin though :)

Oh...and you need an About/Author bit in your sidebar I think...easier for new visitors.

LOL! Sanch, I've left the smaller orange pumpkins as they were! :D
Yeah, I need that in the sidebar, now that I don't have a brief about me in the header image. But I can't find a pic of me that I like enough! :(

Looks great! Though I am biased for the orange pumpkins :D

Chicky said...

Et tu, Shilpa? :D
Hahaha! Maybe I'll bring back the orange pumpkin in my next makeover. For the time being, I'm enjoying being the green alien! :P

I like the blog's new look, and I wish for you that you fulfill all your goals - blogging or otherwise, in 2016.

Wishing you and your family a very happy new year 2016. :)

P.S. While this green pumpkin is cute, I kinda miss the orange one. :)
