Do you like mystery?

“Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise.” 
Julia Cameron 

Already two days since I changed the template of my blog and I have discovered that the minimalist look is something I really enjoy. This uncluttered version is giving more focus to the photographs I love to take. Interesting to see how following my inner whisper lead me to this place. It is feeling quite strange to be here and at the same time, I am sensing it is where I belong. It looks like I will be here for a while😉

The down side of this has more to do with the sense of being all alone, wondering if anyone else is reading. I have created the inspiration page to try and keep in touch with some of my favourite blogs. I can see all your comments and feel so pleased to read them and to go and visit you back. I still fee a bit disconnected, I guess it has to do with the disappearance of the sidebar and all the gadgets it had. It feels a bit mysterious and quite one-sided right now… 

If someone at Blogger is listening, or actually reading this post, I’d like them to give the templates more creative freedom (missing my beautiful header, so much). I read that Blogger would eventually bring gadgets support. So being the optimist I am, I will be waiting and hoping it will happen sooner than later…Site Meter

  2. I keep thinking I want to go minimal but as you said we lose quite a bit when we do. Maybe not having the sidebar is a good thing as it keeps the focus where it counts…but I do miss your beautiful headers you create!

  5. i really like this too – love the minimalist look. on the top left of your blog i can change the appearance though from classic, to all kinds of different options; am i meant to be able to do that? there is a sidebar version there i think.i moved over to wordpress recently (from blogger) and i am happy i did, works for me in terms of more creativity with the layouts.. have a great day🙂

  7. I like this look much better. Simple is good. Also, just fyi, you might take a look at wordpress. I think it has much more to offer in terms of customizing your site. (Is that a bad thing to leave on a blogspot blog? Sorry… don't mean to offend at all… just sharing my preference.)

  8. Tracy's right, Anyes. I love the look of this. And WOW, what a gorgeous (and *very* NW) photo today. Yes, you know very well that I love mystery! And the misty, mossy rainforests around BC and WA are beloved favorites that evoke mystery so well.Trust me, my dear, I'm here!Kathryn

  9. The minimal look is lovely, I think so too, Anyes–it really does put your photos in top focus. ;o) I've been blogging many years now, and I like a more minimal look. Too much in the sidebar, too many buttons, widgets and whatnot subtract a bit from the main content & photography sometime. Follow your heart, it will tell you. :o) Happy Days ((HUGS))
