Similar Look, New Theme

After a slow start to the year, I've done a lot of posting in the past month. So I also thought it might be time to tweak the look of the site.

Although the look remains similar., I've just enabled a new theme. The older theme was a bit bloated and wasn't being maintained by its creator any more, but I think that I got good use out of it since I switched my blog to WordPress just over 4 years ago.

I wanted a more lightweight theme that was still easy to customise, and I think I found that with GeneratePress. Like the old theme, I don't mind paying for good design, and I think there's a fair bit of value in the add-ons that GeneratePress charges for (although I still couldn't resist hacking in some ugly CSS to get it looking the way that I liked).

One of the biggest changes with this theme is the change of the font to OpenSans. I know it is a lot easier on my tired, aging eyes, so I hope it is also on yours.
