Wonderfully Soothing Whitespace

December 23, 2007

So, as you can see, I’ve switched themes. This theme is called “Cutline“. I like this one better than the last one, as it is easier on the eyes and there’s lots of lovely, soothing whitespace. The coding is squeaky clean for a theme, too! The CSS is entirely too much fun to futz with and the actual PHP is nice and organized.

All the photos in the header are mine, taken at various places along my travels. They will probably change with my mood and/or season, but I’m really liking the beach/ocean visuals at the moment. 🙂

Also, if you comment regularly, you might have noticed that you have your own unique avatar next to your name. Those icons are from my newest WordPress plugin, called “Wavatar“. The plugin assigns a totally unique avatar based on and tied to your email address you use to comment, but only if you don’t have a gravatar already. It’s a fun little plugin and, if you comment and don’t have a gravatar, I hope you like your specific “wavatar”!

Very neat plugin! Wonder what I’ll get for an avatar.

Oops. Forgot I had a Gravatar…

I noticed it the other day…Thought it was really cool! I LOVE the new look. And your photo is beautiful!

Ok….I have been looking around – like forever and I can’t find them – where do you get the little teeny “icons” that are at the bottom of your posts? (under where it says “share and enjoy”)

Wonderful white space! I know what you mean about the joy of futzing around with a wonderfully written theme – for the past few weeks I’ve been looking to find the perfect template to mess around with myself.

I love the look! It’s gorgeous!

Sara – It’s always a great feeling to find a plugin that is everything you want it to be, isn’t it?

Patrick D. – 😆 I did the same thing when I tested it. I was looking for a Wavatar, but remembered I had a Gravatar. Teehee!

Simple Mindz – Thank you!!! I really appreciate your feedback on the new theme and plugin. Oh, and those icons are from a plugin called Sociable. 😀

Sara – Thanks Sara!!! As always, I really appreciate your feedback. Yes, I <3 messing with the code on anything I can. It must be the “geek gene”. Heehee. Check out Cutline or anything by Chris Pearson to futz with. Good stuff!

Thank you! I love those…Will add them.
