Jenen! I’m not taking credit for the design cos it was taken entirely from this theme and applied to the original backbone of this layout which is this theme. I already finished layouting my test blog but found that there are some features that I may lose out if I overwrite the existing theme with a new one, so I decided to just incorporate the features I want from the other theme. It’s not a lot anyway, just the background and the single column post container which I dissed eventually.
I changed my mind, I’m not really decluttering, I’m just trying to make my widgets appear neat and organized. I hope it shows lol.
On my previous theme I was fascinated by the idea of a video header. But it’s quite a task finding a free video host that wouldn’t take down my file without notice, and I wouldn’t invest money on a measly 15second webm file either, so I just shrugged it off, more like I got tired of looking at it lol.
Then I was browsing at blogger theme galleries for inspiration and found Padhang Theme, I was caught by the beautiful background and thought ohkaaaaay let’s do that. It’s a CSS miracle to be able to fix and scale a background image proportionately to a browser window (or maybe I’m just old). Digging through the codes I learned it was actually a jquery plugin called Backstretch that’s responsible for the perfect background haha. I’ll leave it at that but know that I’m very happy I found out about it.
Just like how I was so glad learning about Font Awesome. <3
Happy Friday you guys!
