While collecting new screenshots for a weekend presentation I am giving about Geneablogging I realised that the Geniaus blog was looking a bit tired and that it was time for a cleanup.
Firstly I tidied up the sidebar elements by moving a few badges down towards the bottom and moving more important elements such as Search, About Me and Topics towards the top. I also deleted the list of links that was taking up space. I finally changed the copyright message that appears at the end of each post from 2012 to 2013.
I didn't fiddle too much with font colours except for the header which I changed from blue to white. I replaced my blue waves background border with plain white. Maybe this is a bit ordinary but I like it for the moment. In keeping with the family trees/leaves theme I changed the header picture I had that was an image of trees on my property and replaced it with a picture of leaves that I took on my recent holiday. I need to make this a fraction wider and then I'll be satisfied.
I'll probably tire of my new clean appearance after a while but, for the moment I'm pleased with my mini makeover.
How long is it since your blog got a tidyup?
