Here’s what it’s got going for it:
- Text over my original picture which I put in place of the original one.
- The colors are nice and I like the contrast between the links and the post text. Misty Look used a dark green for links which was very similar to the post text.
Here’s what I’m not particularly fond of:
- The excruciatingly slow page loads. To partially mitigate this problem I followed these instructions over at TheUsefulBlog.com which cut page loads down to around 13 seconds (from almost 60!).
- The bullets to the side of my link categories
- The fact that it doesn’t display the hierarchy of my categories
As with any theme change, I have a number of customizations that I’ll have to bring over from my previous theme, but hopefully that won’t be too bad or take too long. That’s just part of the fun, right? The “moving in.”
