For the past few days I’ve been thinking about a ‘new look’ for the blog so I’m trying out this one – Chateau. I wanted something slightly more elegant than the one I had been using (Twenty Eleven) and one that would reflect The Dappled Butterfly of the title. I would prefer right-sided navigation for the tag and category clouds but otherwise I’m pretty pleased with it.
So do you think the theme element of a blog is important? Does the appearance enhance the content? I certainly believe a professional, clean layout makes for a more enjoyable reader experience, which is what I’m aiming for here.
Any comments on the change, positive or negative, would be welcome!
