Once I had children of my own September continued to mark fresh starts and new beginnings. More than even New Year’s Day, birthdays or anniversaries, September is a time for changes, challenges and beginnings.
For the past year or two I was using Thesis theme which I customized and a logo designed by Randy Matheson. I loved the way it looked and I was happy with Thesis in general but I’ve been itching to do a redesign of MerlenePaynter.com for months. I started using Genesis themes from Studiopress back in November when I bought a Genesis Pro-Plus All Theme account but put the makeover off until now.
As of now (September, 2011) I’m using the new Scribble child theme for the Genesis framework without any customization. Right now, it’s suiting my needs as is. A first for me. I usually have to hack and slash some customizations into a blog theme to be happy with it but the Scribble theme just feels right, as is.
Over the past year I’ve written very little for this blog. I have a list of 100+ post ideas written down but just haven’t settled into writing. Maybe it was because I’d been putting off the redesign for so long that I didn’t want to see fresh new content on the (to me at least) stale, old blog. I love the way the Scribble theme feels. Now it’s time to dust off that list of 100+ post ideas and get writing.
