I am very happy and a little bit terrified to present a new design for my blog.
I'm semi-satisfied with it all. I know I could have really benefited from knowing a thing or two about colour, design, and html. In my mind it is about a hundred times more attractive and original, so try to imagine that when you look at it...
But, it feels more like home now. And finally getting it out there means I can stop fiddling with it all. Unlikely, though.
There will be some new content soon too - I'm working on 'about me' and 'about macondo' pages. It's all pretty much ready, I just have to read it over another hundred times or so. And wonder some more if it's too cheesy and I should just scrap it. (About me: I am obsessive, and I tend to be cheesy.)
It's funny, orange used to be one of my least favourite colours. It's been growing on me over the last few years, and lately has zoomed into first place (in the colour race in my head). I want orange walls (well, one orange wall would do), orange towels and orange sheets. A good, strong orange. Not so much for my clothes, but for my space.
And the only thing I knew when I started this blog was that it had to be orange and brown. I am normally very indecisive, so being so sure of that is kind of strange for me. But there you have it.
I would love to know what you think, and please do let me know if you have any suggestions (content or design) or if anything isn't working or seems wrong.
