…and the quest to see everything

I got a new theme!


I’ve liked the slide show feature of the previous theme, Modulary Lite, but once in a while, I remind myself to look at the WordPress announcements to check out new themes. Most of them suck except for this one. Other commenters in the WordPress blog have already called it retro, which is why I chose it. It comes with a retro font, too, but I have to upgrade my Firefox to see the result. Nards.

Also, I have a heading like a real blog now! And it’s from Jane Eyre! Yay! But I might remember/forget to change it once every ten posts. Boo. The fact that my original blog name, ‘Brown Okinawa Assault Incident’ ran down to two lines in the header made me want to shorten my blog name. Still too esoteric, though.

Everything in this new theme feels too big, the header, the font. I don’t want the reader to have to scroll down to see my content. And I have to put more pictures in each post [UPDATE: which means it’s probably going to take longer to load my site.] so that the visual and written parts are balanced within the computer screen. But meh. This theme stays for another six months, I guess. Or when something better comes along.

UPDATE: Because I’m not talking about this theme change again tomorrow, here were rejected suggestions for my new blog name, which blogspot hasn’t updated yet. I have the best Facebook friends.

  • “blog”
  • Cutekittenssavedafterthejapaneseearthquake-notthelybianwarblog-movies.wordpress.com
  • Blog Bloggerson
  • Ordinarypeopledontwantsartsfundingvoteharper.wordpress.com

  1. It looks a very posh house so it does. I keep toying with the idea of a new theme too, but I would like to try it out first before I go live.

    I have been toying with the idea of buying one…eeeek. Thats stupid right?

  2. I think one of the bloggers I read once in a while has a theme that’s bought. I wish I could make my own theme that’s like this one but more economical. Or just get my own site.

      • i replied to your comment saying “how did i see this comment coming?” and then wordpress gave me this message:
        “We’re experiencing some problems on WordPress.com and we are in read-only mode at the moment. We’re working hard on restoring full service as soon as possible, but you won’t be able to create or make changes to your site currently.”
