A spangle or minimal theme

I have thought about changing the theme on this blog for a while. I haven’t found anything that suited my blog. I didn’t want a complicated layout. After looking for a new theme that wouldn’t mess up my blog, look wise. I finally found one. It’s called Penscratch 2. If I had to choose between a spangle or a minimal layout, I would choose the latter. I wanted a design that had two columns and that I would still have the same widgets.

There are so many themes to choose from, so it’s hard to know what suits your blog the best. A spangle is not always the best if you want to keep it simple. I think this theme I have is the best. It’s easy to manage, so I’ll keep it for some time.

2016 and beyond

Not talking about the year. I mean the WordPress theme, Twenty Sixteen.
It was time for a new layout. Year is soon over and I wanted a change. Is it good? The layout that is. Not the change even if that’s good too 😀

This layout will do for now. I don’t know what people think about changing the layout of things too often. If it’s after a week or two then that’s too often. But if it’s change 6 months or a year, that’s not bad. It works better for blogs. Websites are different. Some sites look the same for years.

I don’t know how much people look at blog layouts. Do they even visit the blog itself or just read posts on Reader. Personally I do both. If you only read a posts on Reader, you won’t see beyond the blogger. A good layout tells a lot about a person. If it’s sloppy done, it tells you, the blogger doesn’t really bother. If it’s well done, it tells you this person made an effort. Blogging is just not about writing. You also need to look at your layout.

Like I said, the year is soon over and it’s time to look back. Last year I did a review of my blogging year. I don’t know if I’ll do it this year. There’s a lot of work but it’s also interesting what you’ve written during the year. You don’t remember everything you’ve blogged about. I sure don’t. There’s still left to say so I won’t do it just yet. It’s never too early to start going back in time though.
