Viola!

July 15, 2006  |  Uncategorized

[Update]: I have decided to give the main areas a soft blue instead of the white to lower the brightness of the template, that way you guys get to see it without hurting your corneas. At least I think that’s what they are called.

And here it is, my new theme in all its glory. I know that many of you will complain that it’s too bright and all that but I’ve brought it a bit darker from its initial stage. I also put in alot of hard work into it. I hate modifying color codes and chosing colors :r But in the end, I have transformed something utterly ugly (sorry to the theme creator himself) and into something BEAUTIFUL!

It is called “Paradise Lost”, this is my adaptation of the idea of a lost Paradise, a place where beauty and lots of nice things exist. I even lost my gift of creative writing LOL! It’s been ages but oh well. Before I leave to gather your beautiful opinions I’d like to point out I removed the “Top Commentators” plugin, since its pointless for now, I am going to remove all the links from the sidebar and create a links page since that is the most beautiful and easier choice to do rather than clutter my sidebar, and I will bring back my Live Archives soon. I also want to point out that you should all create a Gravatar account and create your own icon so that it can show up once you comment on my blog, I have placed a default Gravatar icon for those who have none but you should create an account.

And now here are the before and after pictures.

And this shows you basically all the work I put into it, I would like to of course thank Sis #4 for her work on the header, and the fact that it’s bright is because of her :P Don’t blame me okay?
