The Now Look For Now People

I've been muddling about changing the layout of this blog for some time. I found the white text on black background, among other things, to be kind of hard on the eyes, but since no one ever complained about it, I assumed it was just me. I was also leery of changing it after witnessing the chaos that ensued when Luminiferous Ether changed her blog. She lost a bunch of stuff and it took her days to get it to the point where she was happy with it again. Then Quakerdave mentioned in a comment that he couldn't even read it due to the unfortunate color scheme I had chosen back when I first started the thing. That was enough to convince me that the time had come, and here it is. I may play around with it some more, as I'm not totally happy with how it looks, but it's a start. I hope you all find it easier to view, and please let me know if anything about it bugs you.

Thanks,
Ed

P.S. A special thank you to QD. Without your comment I may not have gotten around to changing it for months.

The whole mess looks much better now.

DUDE! This looks SO great. I can come back now without getting a migraine.

I know it's not so rock 'n roll without all the black, but maybe you can work it into the trim work or something...

I was new to the party, but I agree. White on black is not a look that helps readability. Thanks for changing up.

You got a good look going on here!

Very nice. I hate my own color scheme, but I feel stuck with it. Such is the blogging life.

BTW, saw you tagged me. I'm ruminating hard.

Thanks to everyone for your feedback. I think I'll stick with this basic concept for the time being with maybe a tweak or two.

Hi Ed,
The new look is quite appealing. I had trouble reading the old layout, but I didn't want to cross artistic boundaries.
