I think I might have found a better layout/theme for the blog…
I’m slightly reluctant to switch it over because it actually took ages to cutomise my existing blog, given the fairly restricted options which existed a couple of years ago. The theme i’m using (Tarski) was also pretty much the simplest theme on offer, which meant a minimal background, which helps to highlight the content. The major problem though with WordPress is the restricted layout options (certainly compared to Blogger) and with Tarski it’s the fixed and narrow column width.
So, there might be a new and (hopefully, possibly) improved theme emerging soon!
