Just a quick note to say…I’ve changed my blog design!

changed blog design

The title says it all!

A frolic through fiction has had a slight revamp πŸ˜€

I wasn’t actually going to write a post about it, but I figured it’d be a bit odd for me not to acknowledge the differences.

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have already seen this already, but I thought I’d show how it looks on laptops.

Basically, I had some issues with the old theme I used. It was great, but all the photos had a border around them that I couldn’t get rid of, and I really didn’t want them there.

I’ve learnt how to make better graphics too, and really wanted a graphic for my blog title. On the old theme, trying to add the graphic I made just looked stupid against the space background (which, as you can see, is very much still a part of A frolic through fiction), so I’ve changed the theme entirely. Which is why the sidebar is on the opposite side.

All the graphics will be changing on my posts, but other than that…that’s all that’s changed!

Hope you guys like it! There was a really good response on twitter, so that’s encouraging πŸ™‚

Let me know what you think!

Until next time…

    1. Thanks! And it is! Though sometimes stressful when I can’t get one right, I’ve discovered haha!
      (Sorry this took so long for a reply! It went into the spam box for some strange reason)

  1. I love the new look! It looks really nice πŸ™‚
    Just an FYI though, the space background doesn’t show up anymore for me. Thought I’d give you a heads up. πŸ™‚

  2. Very nice! I feel like it’s much smoother and better fitting πŸ™‚ I have a couple issues with my theme, too, but I can’t find a good alternative to fit my sites personality… And I also don’t know how to make my own blog graphics/banners (>_<)
    But this looks lovely! *thumbs up*

    1. Thanks!
      It took me so so long to find a theme that fit. I almost felt like I was being too picky, because I’d preview them all and be like “No it has border around the photos. No, I need a sidebar. No the header doesn’t look right with the background.” and it just went on and on. Found one eventually though!

      1. I know what you mean! I feel picky, too! I do know I want a sidebar. And when I preview themes, sometimes it seems like everything is just so BIG. But if you change the font size, it’s DRASTICALLY different. I’m still working on it (=_=)

    1. On mobile devices the space/galaxy background doesn’t show for some reason, and I can’t fix it so I set the underlying colour as pink, to show up on phones πŸ™‚ It just depends what you view it on!
