All the futzing in the world won’t fix it

Apologies. I’ve been futzing around with the layout here a lot. (If you find anything broken, please let me know.)

It’s just hit me why I’m just not happy, no matter how much futzing around I do. I didn’t make this layout myself and therefore no matter what I do, nothing’s just to how I like it. And yet, it’s been well over a year since I had this blog and my promise to myself of making my own theme hasn’t been fulfilled.

Pre-made WordPress themes are a bit of a cop-out. As a web designer, I feel a little dirty using a pre-made theme. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very nice theme. I wouldn’t be using it if it wasn’t! But it’s not mine. I don’t instinctively know which classes to go and edit if I want to make minor changes. It’s all a bit trickier when you’re weaving your way through someone else’s CSS.

One day. One day I’ll get around to it.
