After troubleshooting for too long only to realize that I forgot to close a freakin’ <div>, I can finally unveil the fruit of my labor over the past few days. Ever since I started this site, I’ve made constant changes to the Elegant Box theme that I chose for the basis of the look of it. What looked something like this wound up looking like the image you see above and I kept going back and forth between decisions I had made about many aspects of the site, never quite satisfied with whatever I settled on. So what to do? Well, after seeing site redesigns up and down (including Joystiq’s and B4B partner-in-crime Mark’s) I took it upon myself to do the same.
I chose Andrei Luca’s LightWord theme as my starting point (because I’m not crazy enough to start from scratch) and took it from there. Not much has changed in terms of where things are located but I think it’s just ultimately more pleasing to the eye. There are still a few tiny issues that need ironing out but those will have to be tackled another day.
How long before I get sick of this and decide to start anew is still up in the air.
