New Design for Consumerism Commentary

This article was written by in Administration. 39 comments.


Unless you’re reading this post via email or RSS, you’ve probably noticed that I’ve slightly changed the look of this site. Let me know if anything looks awkward. I know I’m not a master of design, but I’m pleased with the way it came out. Do your best to shoot down or placate my ego.

I’m digging the image of the “real” Flexo in the sidebar.

I guess ok, but the previous design was fine too. And to tell you the truth, I don’t think you need to change your website as frequently as you do.

I don’t need to, but I get bored of looking at the same design. The previous design wasn’t good for writing shorter posts, and I want both short and longer posts to look like they fit in.

I like it! I think it’s the lighter colors. I sure don’t see the fun in redesigning if it means dealing with with CSS though :P

“The previous design wasn’t good for writing shorter posts, and I want both short and longer posts to look like they fit in.”

Could explain how you tried to do this? Did you change the width of the center column or something? Just curious, as I don’t really notice the difference in that regard.

Hey Jonathan, thanks! I changed the font size and reduced the space taken up by junk in between posts. I think that works better for my posting styles.

I like it, except for one thing. There aren’t enough links to FMF. ;-)
