Feels like me

I’ve only been blogging for two and a half years, but I think I’ve had about 600 different designs. I’ve worked with amazingly talented artists (like Don Naylor, who is as awesome a person as he is a designer), and I’ve loved all the different looks.

But after a few months of one design, I start to get twitchy.

I want to change stuff, and I can’t. And I don’t like being locked in. You may have noticed lately that little elements here and there (and big ones, like my header) disappear on occasion. I always panic when this happens (dang WordPress), and I have no idea how to remedy the situation. It’s frustrating.

See also: Type-A Virgo. I like to be in control.

I’ve been playing with colors and fonts and images for a while now. I’m not an artist, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a shot.

So it’s back to basics for pretty swell.

It’s funny. I started this site in 2009 with a very simple, clean, two-column format. After trying every other configuration under the sun (except the fancy ones that I can’t afford), here I am again.

Back to white space. Back to two columns. Back to me.

I finally feel comfortable in my blog skin. Is that gross? Sorry.

And when I get a hankering to change things up (oh, like next week), I can.

This feels like me. Finally.
