Major site overhaul.

Going through my reading list and pondering over my favorite bloggers' post made me realize that somehow this blog is lacking things that make it somehow reader-friendly/owner-friendly (and the latter's the case, really). I was supposed to have a before-and-after post, but I ended up excitedly tweaking my theme here and there and completely forgetting to take a snap shot of my old theme. And so, if you are reading this, you can most probably see the finished product of my hard work. Haha.

Major site overhaul: my new theme. :)
Black's my thing, and I figured it would be pretty comforting to see my writings in a way that doesn't give off the impression of prim and proper. My former theme's a mix of (let's face it) ONLY classic brown, with a little teasing from the font style plus birds flying in my header, and it really has a classic/serious feel to it, when in fact, I'm targeting the opposite.

And because 11/11/11 has come, and I'm pretty much fooling myself that it would make a big difference to start anew in that date (*giggles*), I decided to make a major change.

I noticed that I absent-mindedly filled up this blog with my amateur reviews and perspective of the books that I've been reading recently and it's becoming more of a book blog, than an online diary. I'm getting caught to it really -- reading, then making a review, it somehow took the fun off reading a little. But I guess I should just minimize it. :P

I want this blog to be something more. Where I'm free to share my ideas without conforming to any theme anyone has in mind. I wanted to just write everything away. I wanted to share thoughts, not only to a keyboard and a blank computer screen, but to friends, who hopefully, read my blog once in a while. I wanted to. And to be able to do that, I think I should be more reader-friendly. I know, I'm trying too hard. But I'm trying my best. Haha. So much for that.

What do you think? :P
