So as you can see, my new theme is up! When I thought about my what I should do for Catastrophe Rising’s next theme, I thought about what inspires me. Which of course led me to my home state of Virginia. I immediately decided that I wanted to do something related to a map and after going over a few ideas, I settled on the grayscale one you see above.
My hometown isn’t on that map of course, because even though I’m pretty open when it comes to the Internet, I still like to remain safe. So you won’t find me in any of those places you see. At least not for long periods time.
If you follow me on twitter, you’ve probably seen me tweet about all the problems I was having with CSS and how frustrated I was with getting every element in the right place, even going so far as to post my problem on Stack Overflow. There was a point where I was even ready to give up and try again at some other time. But I didn’t. I persevered and kept trying and eventually, I got the results I was looking for.
While I was proud of the previous theme, I grew really tired of it’s dullness and I wanted something that looks more modern and vibrant but still unique. I think this theme (which I appropriately named Atlas after the song by Coldplay, whose lyrics are below the title) achieves that result beautifully.
While I was working on my theme, I also took the liberty of updating the other pages, shortening my About page to be more readable instead of listing every single anime or book that I’ve come across. 😆
This will probably be the last theme I’ll craft until I graduate, mainly because I’ll need to be able to focus on my studies and make sure I finish off on a high note.
What do you guys think of this new theme? If you find any malfunctions, let me know so I can fix them.
P.S. The title of this post is from another Coldplay song in case you were wondering.
