Another day, another assignment. Today, we’re tasked with making sure that our blogs are readable on all platforms. The blog should be mobile-friendly so that people can easily catch up on posts on the go. No problem. I can manage that.
I’m still stuck on trying to find a suitable theme, though. Every time I find a theme that seems just about right, there’s some problem with it that makes it unusable for me. Some themes don’t let me upload my full header image (cropping it really ruins the effect), while some don’t have a good combination of colors to give my blog the right personality. There’s always something. Maybe I’m just picky. A little armchair psychoanalysis can extend this to my life as well, where I am too demanding in the specificity of what I want. But let’s save that for another post. Or not, actually. I don’t want to delve that deeply into my strange mind.
The dummy blog has proven useful in dealing with that frustration, as I don’t have to worry about leaving some bizarre or badly arranged theme for my readers to stumble onto while I try to pick a better one. Hopefully, by the weekend, I’ll have found something I can be happy with.
