October 24 New look!

Wow, can you believe it?
YES, after promising you this for years,
Words And Peace has finally
a new look!!
Let me know what YOU think?
  • Do you like the idea of a static page?
  • Do you like the fonts? As for the colors of highlighted words, I’ll probably pick something else in my next review. Would that dark brown work for you?
  • What should I change?
The only thing I don’t like in that theme, is that I can’t seem to find a way to add social widgets in the left menu. But as they show right after the post, I think it can work.

  1. Very pretty and elegant! I do like the font and brown highlights. You can certainly custom tailor the color of highlights for different reviews. I mainly like a blog look that is clear without a lot of shifting images or frames. Your new look is perfect for reading your posts without distractions. I like having the icon for France Book Tours up front under your blog name. Sidebars seem to be disappearing on blog themes these days, perhaps because to make them mobile screen friendly. Placing news and links underneath seems fine to me. Nice job!

    • Thanks. To give more unity, I think I’m going to stick to one highlight colors. Yes, I hate moving stuff too! The hard work was to find the theme closet to what I wanted. When I stumbled for the first time on the HUm theme, I knew I had to do it

  2. I like it. I’m not a fan of static pages though. Also, with the Murakami review I found the bright green rough on the eyes. The blue was a little hard too, but not as much. Since it’s a white background slightly darker colors would appeal more to my eye. But that’s just me.

    • As I explained, I will change the color of the highlight when I write new reviews. This was my last review written with the brown background> i obviously do not have time to change all the colors of my previous reviews. This is wordpress.com and a free theme, so I don’t have access to CSS to automatically change all the font colors.
      That’s why I tried this dark brown in this announcement post to see how it would look

        • Thanks for your input! After reading your words, I thought I could actually take time to edit all the colors in my very last review, on Murakami, so I did it. So I think I’m going to keep orange for book titles, and dark green to highlight some themes. The blue for the links will be a bit darker as well. With another blogger’s advice, I have changed the font, to use a sans serif, easier to read.
          I have also used some colors to highlight categories and genres on my homepage, and added manually some social media icons. It bothered me that this theme only allows me to put them in the footer.

  3. yes I do prefer this more subdued look and feel. One thing to suggest is that you look for a sans serif font for your content (this is a font which doesn’t have any ‘tails’ in the letters) – it’s easier to read on line.
    I like the layout of the home page too….

  4. I like the clean open look and I prefer black or dark grey fonts – easier to read at any time of the day or night.
    Wordpress doesn’t allow you to play around with the theme very much, but a header might be nice if that’s easy to add?
