The July Look

In honor of the Guest Bloggers, I've given the site a somewhat less John Scalzi-centric look for the month of July. The cloud design in the background seems almost like a Hopi design to me, although that has less to do with me and more to do with the clouds I based it on. Anyway, I think it makes the site look a little more airy, and I hope you like it.

Update: Did a little more tweaking. Looks less Hopi now, I'd say.

I do like it, enough to ask that you consider keeping it when you come back in August.

Jim Winter | June 30, 2005 07:20 AM

Gee, and we were just going to hang one of those scented cardboard air fresheners in here.

Dave Munger | June 30, 2005 08:45 AM

Hmmm.... doesn't look different to me... Maybe I don't have the right colored sunglasses on....

Paul | June 30, 2005 08:46 AM

Like me, Dave, you probably need to clear your cache.

RONW | June 30, 2005 09:33 AM

Thankyou so very much.

Without the OMW reminders... I find the whole plotline is fading from my memory. Eeek

This probably says something about me, but the OMW theme was driving me nuts. The face in the upper right always wanted, tried, and failed to be John Scalzi. It was mildly unsettling, so I would quickly scroll my browser until the face was out of sight.

This theme is much better: cheery without being cloying, calming without being soporific (do I dare post this without checking the spelling on that word? I do. I'm full of piss and vinegar.) and I hereby join the chorus. Please consider keeping it when you return.

Paul --

I see it now, and I should know better...

I'm not sure I like the different clouds at the top, but it's definitely an improvement.

John Scalzi | June 30, 2005 11:02 AM

What?!? Y'all didn't like my overweeningly ego-centric previous design?!?


Eh. I didn't think it was that bad.

Re: keeping the design -- yeah, I will probably keep it after July for some time, since changing the design is a bit of a hassle, and I think it does look nice.

Dawn B. | June 30, 2005 12:32 PM

FWIW, I liked the old design better. Or even the older design from before the OMW revamp.

This is too bright and makes me long to go outside rather than reading the fun words.

Roger | June 30, 2005 12:55 PM

Looks a bit like a Rorschach test to me.

Bill Schafer | June 30, 2005 05:56 PM

Could we get something a little more Industrial? At least on Mondays?

Jeff Porten | July 1, 2005 01:38 AM

I promise to be highly sardonic and grumpy to bring balance to the bright fluffy clouds. Saturdays will be a black hole of despair, surrounded by pictures of bunnies.
