New Day, New Look

Many thanks to those of you who have visited this blog since it was launched just over a week ago.  I appreciate the support and comments.

The most common suggestion was to switch from a black background to a white one in order to make the posts more reader friendly.  Although I liked the old black background, I did find the font too small.

So we have a new look.  I suspect that I will fiddle with the layout some more in the days and weeks to come, but I will endeavour to ensure that it is easy on the eyes.

What do you think?  Please leave a comment and let me know.

  1. Black is deemed trendier nowadays but I do find it a bit heavy and sinister. You are right to change. Makes it more human. Keep the colour coming in bits and pieces. Content and the way you purvey tips are excellent. Also using Twitter to alert us to another great thought coming our way. The stuff on the left side looks very smart and useful. Presume this all set up in the WordPress package?

      Marcus, thank you for the kind words and support. The “widgets” in the sidebar almost all from WordPress and very easy to use. For those that are not, you can get the code elsewhere and drop it into a blank text widget on WordPress. I realize that this sounds complicated if you have never done it. But a week ago, I had never done it and if I can figure it out, anyone can. For people who are thinking of starting a blog, my suggestion is to create a “Dummy Blog” and then play with it. If you make a mistake, no matter. Just try something else. Cheers!

    Hi John, I thought the black version was great but it’s good of you to bend to the wishes of your audience! Keep at it, it’s great!

    This is ever so much better, John. I’m delighted that you made it so much more readable because I am enjoying the content. Toastmasters is a passion of mine and I am gradually learning more about PowerPoint, so I have now bookmarked this site.
