Blogging Interior: Scaredtoast's make over!

31.7.13

I've been dropping hints/explicitly saying on twitter that something exciting this way comes.....and here it is!  Whaddya think of Scaredtoast's new look?

I figured that with all the changes and developments I've been making as a blogger (YouTubing, showing my face!), now was as good a time as any to switch things up a bit with the aesthetic of this blog.  I designed my old template years ago from scratch (we're talking before blogger gave the option of three columns....that was a headache in itself!) and the idea of making any changes filled me with terror.  But yesterday I decided to bite the bullet and go for it.

Hours of html-ing later, and here we are!  Credit where credit's due.....big thank you to Rosie for being on hand with advice (and for the inspiration behind my new header) and to my big sister for putting up with me constantly sending across links for her to check it out.  Thanks you two!

Things look a lot cleaner now and I've added new "About Me" and "Contact" pages which you can access on the right. I've also enlarged the width I can display photos at, to show off the snazzy photos I'm hoping to take with my new lens.  This will take effect from now, but old photos won't be formatted correctly....I don't think that'll make too much difference to the way it all looks though.  This also gives me a chance to play around a bit, and make the editing changes that I've been thinking of for a while.  First up, I'm debating centering the text on blog posts - any thoughts on this?

I'm so pleased with Scaredtoast's sleeker new look, and I hope you like it too.  I'd love to hear any thoughts you have on it, and if you notice anything that's not quite right then please do tell me!

    1. It stems back from my myspace days! I used to be a real whizz...lost a lot of it now. The trickiest part is figuring out what the things you want are actually called so you can google how to do them properly x
