A new look


So....I got a suggestion from a fellow blogger and one of my readers, Gary (aka "Old Dude") about changing the colors in my blog. I gotta say, choosing colors is not a strength of mine. The fact is, I'm color blind. It's rare in a woman, but there you go... I didn't know I was color blind until I was in my mid-20s and applying for an air traffic controller job. It actually disqualified me (which I believe was a blessing in disguise). But I digress...

I think I don't see color in the same way as other people. I mean, I see red, green, blue, yellow -- but I think I don't see the subtleties of shading that most others do. The main result of this is that I usually make very "safe" choices -- like with my blog, I simply chose a template and stuck with those colors and didn't give it much thought... Until Gary questioned me, "why green?" Hmmm. Why not?


So, I've made some changes. I don't know if they "work" or not, but I think they look pretty good. Comments are welcome - you won't hurt my feelings. Well, hopefully not, anyway.

I have to say yes this is much better than the green you were using. As it happens I am "Red/Green" color blind. I have a hell of a time picking out shades of brown, khacki, olive and greens when it comes to trying to match pants, socks etc. I therefore tend to stay with blues and greys, and a modicum of other colors. I Like this new look of your blog.

Vikki -- I DO know how you are about pink! I thought of you when I chose this...


Gary -- me too. I have red/green deficiency, or so they tell me. All those colors you mentioned give me fits, too. Someone will say, that's green, and to me it looks gray.....or whatever. I do a lot of black and white. Or black and red. Or black and .... well, I guess you get the picture. :-)

Whereas MY blog IS green, because, well, so is my last name. But yours does look better

Roger, I like your green blog. Heck, I liked MY green blog....but I like the pink too. It's different, and girly. And, well, I guess I can be both of those things. :-)
