A change is as good as …?

In the last week I have been “tweaking” my blog and I have actually changed my Theme.  Back in Feb 2014 when I started this blog I picked the “Ever After” theme because I liked the clean 1 column layout, and I had been very happy with it.  But sometimes you just have that urge to freshen things up (at least I do), so after spending nearly a whole day previewing just about every other new theme I finally settled on “Plane”.

“Plane” is also a 1 column layout but slightly wider.  I love how my photos now nearly fill the whole screen, and all the white space around my verse.  There is only one thing I’m not completely happy with, and that is the colour choice that comes with it, unless you upgrade.  However, I am learning to live with Brown and it’s understatement may become my friend.

In line with this urge to “tweak”, yesterday I merged my second blog with this one.  I had been contemplating this for ages, but always a small spark of something – ?affection? – had stopped me before.  I had actually completed a merge of it once before, but then immediately deleted it all!   Yesterday I just got on with it and I am pleased that I did.  The majority of the content from my other blog were “Questions”, with some photo challenges thrown in for relief.  I exported it from one blog and imported it into this one, which allowed me to bring all the comments with it.

If you’re interested in seeing the “Questions” from that blog they are on a new page I created called “If you’re looking for Answers“, which contains a link to the category “Questions” (I was proud I figured out how to do that all by myself).

Happy New Year.

    I like the new theme. I changed mine late this year too. I also have two blogs but the more popular one is the newer one (probably because it has more genuine subscribers). I’ve been toying with the idea of cancelling the less popular one because I find myself contributing to it much less – but since they are both a little different from each other I haven’t done so. Maybe a merge is in order?

      Yep, that was my story too. In the end I decided to merge them, much easier to manage only one with the amount of time I have, and I was neglecting the second blog. It took me ages to finally make that decision and stick with it, but I am glad I did.
      Wishing you well with your decision.

    I like the new look. I have been playing with some changes, but haven’t made the move yet. I need a theme which allows me to integrate more photos, particularly before my upcoming trip. I plan to include photos in my posts from Tasmania.

      Thanks. It’s always hard to pick a thee that does both words an photos, but I am happy with this one as it is wide screen which shows the pics off lovely.
      There are some lovely photo blogging themes out there too, but I also want my written words to look good.

        Yes. Since I’m more of a writer than a photographer I didn’t worry much when I started. Now that I’ve had some practice and now that I plan to introduce more photos I know I need to make a change.
