Because randomness is the way to go! ;)

From way back when…

Oh God! I’m so bad at giving titles to my posts.
Never mind that though, if you click to read it in spite of the titles, at least you won’t be disappointed!

So, as per today’s prompt (Flashback Friday: Blog’s First Design) I visited the website that has archived all the websites that ever exist, from way back when.
I was extremely disappointed though, because while they do have my blog with the old design, it’s not proper.
Like, my theme was “Crafty” in this nice shade of green with cream colored flowers on it.
What they have instead is this:

Oh yes! No flowers, nothing!
Just the background color.
Oh well! I should’ve probably taken a picture of my own blog before but you know, I never thought of that- because I’m not a narcissist (my ramblings would prove otherwise, I know- but really!)

More interesting to look at is this other picture I took from that site!

I had probably recently posted my back to back John Green posts then (this one and here’s the other one) , and I had recently become a Nerdfighter as well.
And this picture shows how there was a lot of back and forth commenting by me and Leanna, my friend over at Short Story Long Blog.
This is perhaps one of our first conversations (I don’t remember anything from before this) and that’s how we became friends actually.
Because we both were (are) Nerdfighter Potterheads.
Having a picture of it to treasure and look at later makes me really happy for some reason!
(So happy, in fact, that I’ve forgiven the previously mentioned website for messing up my blog’s first theme.)

I actually used to love that theme a lot! It was perfect for my blog, and really colorful and random!
But then, I don’t remember what exactly happened (*whispers* this did actually) and I felt like I needed a change- so I changed the theme and a little bit of stuff around here.

Anyway I do love my new theme now, it is also very colourful, albeit in a more Spectrum-y way!

Took a picture now itself! Not making the same mistake twice ๐Ÿ˜›

One of the best things about this theme is (which may or may not have been the deal maker -is that the opposite of deal breaker though? If not, what is? – while I chose a new theme) the tag cloud at the very bottom of the page.
For some reason I love it!
It displays all my tags in different colours and the sizes vary depending upon how much I’ve written about the topic.

Isn’t it lovely?

    • Haha yes! Actually you know? When you first commented on my posts, I thought you had been a Nerdfighter for a lomg time (I also thought you been blogging for longer actually :P) and so I was a bit wary, I didn’t want you to feel like I was stupid for not knowing so much more there is to know about Nerdfighteria.
      Dont ask me why- I always assume others know that thing we know better than I do.

  2. Whenever I browse the themes I always have to make sure they’re free before clicking on them–don’t like to get my hopes up only to find that the theme is $75! I love the way your tags are displayed ๐Ÿ˜€ I actually hadn’t seen that before, mainly because I take care of the notifications side of things on my Kindle, so I also read other people’s posts from my Kindle as well. I’ll have to take a look at your blog on my laptop!

    Nerdfighteria is awesome ๐Ÿ˜€ John and Hank Green are hilarious and informative. I love their videos! So glad to find a fellow Nerdfighter.

    • I do the same!! (With themes I mean!)
      Even I mostly just access other people’s blogs on my phone.
      That’s why I didn’t know about your Oxford comma supporting until yesterday, when I read the post on my laptop.
      And wow! You’re a Nerdfighter too? That’s awesome!
      John and Hank are the best thing ever! ๐Ÿ˜€
