This will be a relatively short post as i wrote enough for the day about an hour ago lol.
I was up until around 2:30am last night designing version 3.0 of Mental Ephemera. All week it was bugging me. I finally decided to just sit down and knock it out. I blame it on the simple elegance and content focus of Apricot Tea. Why did i have to stumble upon that site? Lol. I’ll never know, i’m sure, but what i do know is that it was the muse for 3.0. And, I think it came out well.
It’s odd that since i made the temporary switch to a black, blue and white color scheme, i’ve loved it. I don’t want much red in the scheme. First time in two versions. There go my mercurial tastes again. Smh. I think i will style some links red, probably those inside the posts, so at least i’ll have some smattering of my favorite color on the site.
I think the new design fits well with what i am trying to accomplish: clean, semi-minimalistic, and focused on the important thing, content. Let me know what you think of the Mental Ephemera redesign.
I hope to start coding this upcoming weekend, most likely Sunday night or Monday throughout the day as i’m off from work in observation of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday. Wish me luck!
