"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside, inside them they've all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe" ~ Neil Gaiman (A Game of You)

Ch-Ch-Ch-Ch-Changes!

Well, you may notice that my blog looks a little different today.  I think I'm changing as a writer.  I've decided where I want my blog to go.  For now.  I want it to be a laboratory and playground for my writing.  I still have so much to learn, and there's so much I want to try.  I just felt it needed to be a little whimsical to encourage a bit of fun around here.  I hope you like it!  And don't worry if you don't -- I'll probably be changing it again sometime.

Oh, gosh, Shelli. I love this new look and where you are going. You give me strength to keep writing and step out of my fear to write outside of the box ~ to really stretch and grow....
Bless you in your endeavors! It is exciting!

I love the background, but I'm not sure about the brown color behind your words...something lighter might work better.

Anyway, keep me posted. I love works in progress!

Shelli said...

Thank you, Renee! You inspire me. I think it's exciting, too!

Tanya -- I don't think something lighter would work, because of the white type. Should I try a little darker, maybe a chocolate brown? And does anyone know how to do that? I just picked up a pre-made template from Pyzam. So much for my wicked HTML skillz, lol.

The next step! I love it. The giraffe is fun, and your new attitude reflects where you're at in the writing process. It's nice. Have fun!

Very fun Shelli! I've been working on focusing my own website and blog as well, especially considering my busy schedule this Fall. The earthy tones are very fun and relaxing. Great job!

Nikki, that's what I thought, too. Thanks!

Karen, thank you. I'll probably change to something more professional when I have something to actually promote, but like Nikki said, this suits where I am in the process right now.

Great background! I like it!

Shelli said...

Joan, thank you for stopping by. I'm glad you like it!

Fun is definitely the first word coming to mind! I like it. Plus giraffes are just awesome anyway.

If you want to try out different colors for the fonts, just review the template's html. Make sure you back up the template first, and then scroll through the HTML to find the font you want to change. All you have to do to try out different colors is type in the color's code or color name in place of the code already there and see how it looks. I use this w3c schools site as a reference (I'm new to HTML so use this site heavily).

Shelli said...

Angela -- yes, the giraffe is what sold me on this one! And thank you so, so much for the HTML advice! I think I do want to try a chocolate background for better visibility. I appreciate it.

Tamara said...

Love it. can't help with the html - but I think the colors work.

I like the new look, Shell!! It's cool. My blog is also a lab and playground. It will really help you in the long run!!

Shelli said...

Thank you, Tamara and Kim. I think the thumbs up have won out, and I'll stick with the new look.
