Remember a few weeks back when I was suffering from serious ennui and thought my blog design sucked lemons and didn’t know what I was doing this for and yadayada …? Well, I sat myself down and had a good long think, and my think went something like this: Either I just scrap the whole blog thing because my enthusiasm has sort of waned, stop doing it altogether and do something else, OR I inject it with some freshness, take a new approach, try something different.
And, well, I picked the second option.
So here we are, this is the first stage of my new and improved Iceland Weather Report: a new look. Like it? I do. Especially the supercool rotating header image … m-hm, you read that right, it’s actually a rotating header image, so that every time you log on you will have a different picture at the top. Yes I know, it’s the coolest thing you’ve ever seen, I know. Me too.
The second thing is that I want to do new and different things with the content, but all that will have to happen gradually. Meanwhile, over the coming days and weeks I’ll be tweaking the site and adding more headers and trying out new things and adding new pages and seeing if I can import my comments from Haloscan [initially they will all be left behind, sob!] and a myriad other stuff that needs to be addressed. And so – the future is a blank template, an unwritten blog post!
AND AS IF ON CUE, SPRING SPRUNG TODAY
It actually went up to around 8°C and felt unspeakably balmy, although there was a strong wind. It’s that time of year when you don’t quite know how to dress when you go out … I went to the bank this afternoon with a wool scarf around my neck and wearing my [thin, windproof] winter jacket and was sweltering, particularly as the sun came out just as I was leaving the house. It’s time to get out the sneakers and put away the sheepskin mitts. Yowsa! Currently 7°C [45F] and sunrise in the capital was at 5.48 am, sunset at 9.08 pm.
PS – the old site will stay up for a while, but on www.icelandweatherreport.blogspot.com
