Face lift

by VM Brasseur on August 29th, 2005

This week I’ll be trying out a few new themes for FirstStep. This is the first of them. It’s called “Almost Spring.” Needless to say, if you have an opinion about it you should post a comment. Hard to read? Hard to find the (droids? No no no) links you’re looking for? Let me know.

  1. I like the layout, not so much a fan of the color structure.


  2. The color seemed right yesterday, but today it’s starting to get under my skin as well. That’s easy enough to change via CSS, if I feel like putting in the effort. Instead, there’ll probably be another “out-of-box” theme slapped up here for comments in a day or so since it’s easier.

  9. I liked the earlier fonts. Or maybe that was my font. Fonts are so funny on the interweb. But regardless. I really like gill sans for titles and verdana for body. And the green/orange theme I’m getting here is a trifle trying.

    But who am I to talk, my stupid blog is all pomo and gothy (somehow simultaneously). Maybe I should make mine black-on-black so you can’t actually read it. Hmm…

  10. Well, at least that would be an update of SOME sort to your blog. The first in, what, six months?
