Received an email from Jane today:
Great to see the blog back May I comment on the design? Absolute
over abundance of white space, in the banner heading and everywhere
else. The old blog design was much superior. The new one also doesn’t
fit as nicely onto my mini-notebook screen.
Bye now, it is just not as nice to hang around and read anymore. It is
like being in the snow in sunshine.. Any chance of a different look?
Gee, sorry about the eyestrain Jane.
I kinda (sorta) like the new look. Its more minimalist and keeping in the theme of crisp white hospital sheets (with a smattering of blood). This theme is also a little easier to post to than the previous ‘magazine’ style which involved a little more flaffing around to reorganise the new posts.
But I can see how all the white space and simplified design might be a little underwhelming.
Also, I’d hate to think the new look stops people form wanting to hang around and read my stuff.
Is anyone else a little disappointed with the current format? Back to the drawing board?
Let me know.
