As I mentioned in Twitter, I have been catching up on my Twister Nether Blogcast listening (it involves me being able to sit at the computer for a while because I don’t have an Mp3 player). Now, in the particularly great episode featuring Nibuca, there was mention of making your blog pink to make it blatantly obvious that you are female. Nib said that she could not go that far, and that she hates pink. Actually, to rephrase that, she can not STAND pink. Now, you guys want to know a secret?
… I really do not like pink either. So much so that I was completely baffled when this blog became a revolting display of pink love. To make it even more confusing, it also became a pink and purple love fest! All my close RL friends would be able to tell you that this really isn’t me. It’s quite out of character. In fact, I think that the blog chose it’s colours more than I did. I know that I wanted to steer away from blue, because that seems to be a prevalent tone across many blogs. I included green, because that is my alltime favourite colour. The pink, well… I think it decided that it wanted to screw with me a little. To try and rub my femininity in my face (accept it woman, you are a girl!)
In all seriousness, it really just kinda happened. I was pretty insistent on some green in here, but I didn’t want an entirely green blog, because that to me suggests restoration. Total opposite of a Warlock. The header was purple, because that IS the Warlock colour, and I thought orange kinda contrasted well. Then I needed something to match, so we have a lilac sort of side bar, and a pink background.
It’s grown on me as well. For perhaps the ugliest looking blog in the world, I love it anyway. Perhaps I am the red headed stepchild of the blog world!
