… a new theme! I’m sure some of you have noticed already, but Tailgrab.Org(y) has changed a little bit. A new theme here, a touch of tail there, and even Tailgrab’s HQs has changed a bit.
The changes all started in a fairly unrelated manner, my self-image. I felt my clothes were getting dated, wearing ThinkGeek T-shirts and jeans to work everyday seemed a bit too nerdy, but worst of all, they were getting very worn and faded from everyday wear and tear. So off to the clothing shop I went, shops I suppose as I ended up going to more than one. After picking out some snazzy attire I regained some confidence in my appearance, no longer wearing my old ratty clothes, and receiving some welcome praise on my new looks.
But this was not enough, no, now that I looked good I felt my personal living space was no longer living up to my expectations. So of course I scurried off to IKEA to find some wonderful swedish furniture to mix in with the rest of my room. My key concern was to replace this old, ugly, falling apart shelving unit that just did not match anything at all in my space. Everything I had, sans the desk, is IKEA birch coloured and this shelving unit was cheap black, the new one would of course be coloured to match. However there were addition items I felt were required as well, a shelf next to my desk to remove the growing clutter from overwhelming me, as well as the best piece, a display cabinet to put my figures in!
Again this wasn’t enough, there was something more than was needed, but I couldn’t really put my finger on it. Partly due to the nature of digital objects, however once I saw Kodomut’s newly themed site, I knew what I was missing immediately. Just how ugly my website really was, I liked that it was simple sure, but it really wasn’t very appealing. It seemed too narrow, and things were hard to navigate and there didn’t feel any separation between somethings. So of course I copied Kodomut, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery is it not? 🙂
Switching to the theme was simpler than anticipated as a lot of things were simplified with the theme. However I was still required to update around 60 posts just to get things perfect, or as perfect as I could. Hopefully things are perfect and no one will notice any issues, but, if you do, please, by all means, tell me ASAP! Suggestions are also very welcome and much appreciated.
Things are not all done yet however, I think next on my list is to figure out what to do with all these…
