We have a new face!

I just thought it was time for a change, so I changed the theme! Quite obvious for anybody who reads me through a browser, and not via a RSS feed. The theme is a heavy customisation of the pragmatic theme , and it’s a quite interesting approach. I like the clean presentation, although the underlying code of the theme is not so clean… I changed though over 50% of the code so far, and I am really looking forward for your comments on that.

As you already saw, I said goodby – for now – to interstitials, as they are not behaving any better than the regular ads, and the text was somehow cluttered because of that. Also, I am in the process of redesigning the Archive page, so it might take a while until it will be back again. I kept the 3-columns design, as I still think that the quantity of the content and the general objectives of the blog are better served with this type of structure.

Feel free to comment and let me know how do you find my new blog face. Thanks :-).

Running For My Life - from zero to ultramarathoner

The spooky thing about depression is that it sneaks in. There aren’t really trumpets and loud voices announcing: “Hail, hail, this is depression entering the room, all rise!” Nope. It’s slow, silent, creepy. It doesn’t even look like depression. It starts with small isolation thoughts like: “Maybe I shouldn’t get out today, I just don’t feel like going out”. And then it does the same next day. And then the day after that and so on. And then it starts to whisper louder and louder in your ears: “Why would you go outside, you loser? Didn’t have enough yet? Want more people to make fun of how much of a big, fat loser you are?”

And then you start to breath in guilt and shame, instead of air. Every breathe you take is putting more dark thoughts into your body.

Until you get stuck. You can’t move anymore. At all.

  1. Hi,

    It looks good: clean and easy to read, simple, with a look of professionalism. The fonts are readable and the links are very well emphasized. The three columns format suits well your purpose, because there is a lot of information in the sidebar, so it’s good that we don’t have to scroll down for a kilometer long to see it all.
    It’s excellent that you have a customized photo in the header, yet the keyboard shot from that angle is so widely used, that it’s hardly memorable at all.
    Pay attention to the AdSense module at the bottom of the posts: it is partially overlapped by the sidebar.
    I hope this was useful and I’m looking forward to read your articles.
    Good luck!

  2. Thanls for the kind words 🙂 I was not aware of the advertisment overlapped by the sidebar bug, as I use a rather higher resolution on my Mac, so this one was very useful. I finally come up with a fixed with of 1150 pixels which will make the content slide out for the 1024×768 resolution, but that’s the only solution I found so far…

    And the picture was on my next actions list for two days, and I finally found one of my preferred photos, took 2 years ago somewhere in Transylvania. Hope it fits better than the first one 🙂
