I’ve installed a new theme for the blog: Fusion by Digital Nature.
The layout and positioning are not quite to my tastes, but the subdued, neutral matte color scheme is right up my alley at the moment. I’ve tweaked a few elements–sidebar width, search bar, header height, etc.–to be a bit more compact.
I had wanted to design my own theme, but I decided to swallow my pride and just pick one, because I don’t want this blog to feel like work, and I’ll never write here if I feel like it’s unfinished. So this will do for now. Perhaps I’ll build my own theme when & if I convert this blog from WordPress over to Escher.
