You’ve redecorated…I don’t like it

I like a bit of a refresh every now and then. With a little bit of time to kill at the weekend, I thought I’d tackle my blog design. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with it, don’t get me wrong, but I thought it could be improved in two ways.

Firstly, the main header image was way too big for me. It was making it difficult to appreciate there were actual blog entries on the site. And whilst I love looking at photos of myself as much as the next man (ahem), I just couldn’t bear seeing my big cheesy face staring out at me every time I visited.

Secondly, it wasn’t obvious what I’m about. I guess the careful among my visitors are going to realise I’m some sort of writer, but what sort?

So, a new header image, all moody and dark. A couple of tag lines: one for me as a writer and one for my ongoing series of books and oh my that’s almost a promise now that I’m going to deliver this behemoth of a story into the world, and I think I’m done. At least for now. Maybe next week I’ll be looking and wondering why I don’t have enough blue things on the site. Or pictures of biscuits. Biscuits are definitely good.
