Breaking The Silence (Plus A New Theme)

I have been neglecting this blog for the longest time, as I have been focusing on my WordPress blogs. I barely login to my Blogger dashboard anymore, even less since Paulie and I decided it would be best to drop our Blogger design services and concentrate on WordPress instead when we launched our new WordPress design shop. Surprisingly, this blog is still a PR2, although its Alexa standing is laughable.

Why don't I just delete this blog, you ask? I have trouble letting go of things, see, and this being my very first blog makes it even harder to let it go. This blog has seen the worst of me, and has quietly withstood an era when I didn't know you were supposed to think before you publish things online. Hee hee. But hey, without those immature posts I wouldn't have grown as a blogger, yes? So I'm keeping them, and I'll read back over them to remind how foolish I was a few years back. Sounds like evil fun.

I experienced a fierce attack of minimalism addiction early this year, which is why WAHMaholic, Beauty Queen Gene, I am A Svetlana and Vector Dad suffered from sudden makeovers which left them stripped to the bare minimum. Is this a sign that I've matured with respect to my taste in design? Maybe. Doing away with all the clutter has been therapeutic for me, at the very least.

Anyway, I was asked by a former Blogger design client to tweak her site, which led me to check out this blog. I was shocked at the number of images vying for my attention when I looked at the page, and right then and there I chucked the design out.

A couple of hours later, the new design is done. I've lost count of the number of times this blog has received a makeover, but I'm rather pleased with this one, so it's staying here until... well, as long as it can stay online.

The colors of this design seriously made me crave for a macchiato. Anyone up for coffee?
