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

The title says it all!

A frolic through fiction has had a slight revamp 😀

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.

New Blog Design!

Even though I’ve only had this blog for a matter of months, I’ve not been happy with my blog design at all. For about a month now I’ve been finding backgrounds and testing layouts, taking screenshots but never actually saving the design because I wasn’t completely happy with it.

But oh how that’s changed!

I wanted my blog to take on a certain look, but I don’t know how well I’ll be able to explain this…

Basically, it’s inspired by the word “frolic” in my blog name. That word reminds me of those whimsical photos you see on places like pinterest and tumblr, of a girl dancing around all dreamer-like. And this new design is exactly the sort of thing I’ve been looking for!

New design!

I still wasn’t sure whether to change the design or not, but I just kept coming back to it over and over. Plus the people I’ve asked prefer this one to my old design.

If you view blogs on a computer screen, it will look the same as above but with blue strips down the side, depending on how big your screen is.

My title images will be changing to suit the theme, so at the moment they may look a bit out of place.

I really love my new design!

So let me know what you think!

I hope you all like the new design! Hopefully the “dreamer” type look comes across well.

Blog Revamp: Changing the design slightly

Over the past few days I’ve been trying to revamp my blog design a little bit. I decided the old background looked too dark, so I’ve edited that. I’m aware that the new background is slightly blurry when viewed on a computer but people have assured me that isn’t too much of an issue, so I hope they’re right.

As well as the background, I’ve edited the sidebar slightly so that it now shows a brief summary to my star rating guide, my Instagram profile, and what I’m currently reading according to Goodreads.

I’m always wanting to improve my blog, so I hope you guys like the changes.

And for anyone who only views my blog on a phone, here’s what it looks like in full:

Please let me know what you think!

I struggled making up my mind about the lighter background but everyone I asked said it looked better than the original one.

I do struggle when it comes to blog design, since I’ve not even had it that long, so I hope this looks alright.

I’d love to know if you guys like it, or if there are any improvements that could be made!
