New Year – New look

I try to update the look of my blog fairly regularly (atleast more than my posting :D ). So with the new year, I decided that I needed a new theme, a new look for my blog AND a new name (the first change in my 4 years of blogging).

I’ve always thought that Red contrasts very well with both White and Black. So this time I was looking for a theme with atleast a splash of red. But what I found exceeded my expectations. Based on the wildly popular Hemingway theme, I now present Dawn. A stunning red and black theme by Milo and some beautiful and original artwork by Milo.

I have modified the theme to suit my needs and to show my Zooomr photos and also to fix a couple of bugs which Milo very patiently went through with me to correct. I am extremely grateful for her help.

And yes, I know that the new year was over a month ago but it was not long ago that I found the theme I really liked enough to switch. So here it is :)

    You can download it on: http://magarto.com/dawn_30_beta.rar

    After all you have to go to Hemingway Options and reset your configuration.

    Take a look on my web http://magarto.com

    If you see on Milo blog, it will take some time updating CSS styles for the next and previous link and widgetizes i made:

    If you have any question, just e-mail me at any time

    How do you show at the end of the footer the number of queries, that the page needs? I like it.
    Thanks

    You have to delete “none” word on the header (at the top of the page)

  14. AJ (258 comments) February 4, 2007

    Ah yeah.. I was fixing a CSS issue in the header file so I was printing some diagnostic output ;)
