Don’t ask yourself whether it’s right or wrong. Instead ask yourself – Is it worth it?
I hope you like the new theme. I just picked it from the list that Tumblr provides and made some very minor changes. Easy. Really, I don’t want you to notice the theme at all. As I mentioned, the purpose of this blog is about communicating, not showing off fancy themes.
I take inspiration from the minimalistic theme changes that have happened at Zen Habits. If you’ve followed that site for a while, you would have noticed that more and more things have been taken away from the theme over years, until only the essentials are left – the words on the site in a readable and useful format.
As you can see, I’ve moved my blogging platform to Tumblr (I was using my own hosted WordPress). There are a few reasons for doing this, but the most important one is that this blog is about communicating, not maintaining a blogging platform. I want something that just works, and allows me to share things quickly and easily. I don’t know about you, but nothing kills my creativity faster than frustrating side-issues and jumping through hoops to make something happen.
