What’s going on with my blog?

Well, quite simply, I spent ages redesigning it, and then … the mobile version was just awful. The theme I was using had a drop down menu (just on the mobile view) that had a dark background. Unfortunately, the main colour of the text was also dark. This meant that on a mobile you couldn’t read any of the menu text, so it was impossible to navigate around the site. Not the brightest idea then!?

I was so frustrated because I did like the theme, and when I chose it I had searched for such a long time beforehand. I wasn’t sure it would be easy for me to find another one that I liked.

Anyway, as you can probably guess, I DID find another one and luckily it is even better than what I had before. My posting schedule is a little bit behind now though, as I have to fine tune this design again. I really hope that I am not scrolling through more themes tomorrow πŸ˜‚

I am just looking at it as a happy accident now, because I have been sent in the direction of new and better things. Along the way I have gained knowledge and experience. Just a shame I can’t always see life like that.

  1. Loving the new theme Marie! It definitely can be stressful when you change your theme and find things that are not right, but it all works out in the end even if it takes a bit longer than you thought it would!

  2. I love this new theme and I LOVE your point of view about the whole thing. It would be nice if we always found this type of positivity in every day things lol! Great theme, Marie!

  3. I love looking at themes but it can be hard to settle on one. I’m glad you finally found one that was even better! I like the menu nav on mobile, it works really well πŸ™‚

    1. πŸ˜ƒ I’ve learned so much because of that one thing not working properly, and I’m glad I found this theme. Hopefully I can keep this for a while now. Thanks Geraldine 😊

    1. Thank you! The problem is there are hundreds out there. Until you’ve tried a few you don’t know what works and what doesn’t. I narrowed down my search with a few keywords. I’m pleased with this at the moment, so hopefully this theme is here to stay. It seems more modern than my last one. I won’t be paying for a theme because I change my mind too much πŸ˜‚
