Well, here it is. Submitted for your approval. A new look for “A Way with Words”. I really like it. How about you?
I have a number of bloggers to thank for recommendations on how I might enhance the design. Here are just a few words I heeded –
I think a new visual theme would serve you well. – nivaladiva
I would remove some of the “noise” from the top and bottom of your pages. – russellboyle
Visually…just generally…some colour? An eye-catching photo banner? – Hazy Shades of Me
I quite like “God is I AM therefore I just think (and blog)”… – Lyn
a new blog theme that’s a little less “academic” looking might spruce things up. The font size on your current theme is really small, and thus can be difficult to read. Something that’s a little more aesthetic. – Gwen
John Harper suggested I do something “god/heaven” related in my header.
If you find a good picture, you should change the ocean picture at the top. – Kevin Daniel
Each of these bloggers has helped me a great deal to enhance the visual quality of this blog, don’t you think?
I have decided, rather than providing them with a generic “gift card” for some monolithic corporation, I am going to offer them a choice of two very personal gifts –
1) One of Russell Boyle’s three published anthologies of poems – The Beginning, Footprints or Loneliness.
2) One of my upcoming books: Life, Liberty, and The Pursuit of Happiness or Delight in Despair: Meditations from a Bipolar Mind.
To place your order, simply e-mail me – firstname.lastname@example.org .
Thanks again to all who providing recommendations. I’d certainly welcome more comments the new look of “A Way With Words” as well as the content. My next post will be the first in what will become a series (for a season) – “Friday Flashback”, featuring some early material from my desperate beginnings as a blogger.
