When I started this blog I didn’t give it too much thought. I didn’t start on a whim but it seems that I didn’t plan it out very well. One thing I did not give any thought to at the beginning was the design of the blog. Today I spent over 2 hours scrolling through WordPress themes, trying to find one that I though would be perfect for this blog.
Choosing a design for this blog feels like one of the most important decisions I will ever make. Of course I know it isn’t, but it feels like it. Choosing the look and feel, the font, the layout and overall design is proving to be a painful process. Which font best reflects me and my thoughts about technology? Should I have a solid colour background or a picture? Should I go hipster retro or clean and sleek? It turns out these are all important questions when it comes to choosing a design.
They are all important questions for which I don’t have answers. I know why I started this blog, but how to best reflect that in colours, fonts and images is proving very difficult. I realise that I am, as is often the case, over thinking the whole enterprise. But the pressure I felt scrolling through hundreds of options was intense.
So Dear Reader, I have made a decision and that is to make no decision, yet. I will keep my eye out for designs, fonts and colours I like and trust that when I see a design I will know that it is right on for me. In the meantime, any tips or suggestions will be gratefully received.
