I made an avatar

Plan A: I made the cutest little avatar. It is busy but colorful and fresh. Like brooks running under rustic bridges in the middle of green, full of colorful flora, valleys. I liked it a lot.

Alas, it is unreadable as a tiny avatar picture. It is a splotch. Why oh why.

 

Plan B: A little sad but still brave (I am reading Narnia these days and my vocabulary has been affected). I made a basic, 70ies, yellow one. Ugly-ish. Coca-cola-ish. Looks dated:

On the other hand, it reads great on Facebook and even on Twitter (and by the way: let’s connect!).

I admired its readability for a few minutes. And then, I noticed my blog has rounded avatars. It cuts the edges, making this avatar unreadable as well. Really now…

The design Gods are not with me tonight. I’ll stop trying for now but, will return with a vengeance and…ups, Narnia again.

And this time, I will also figure out a decisive style for my pins. Styling a blog feels much harder than styling a room –  or four armoires for that matter.

But, I’ll persevere. Eventually, it will all fall in place.

Don’t you think? 🙂

    Hi and thanks for the suggestions! I was contemplating changing to squares but I was ambivalent. Decision taken: squares it is and will utilize the plugin Husband 2.0 for the css option. =)

    Cool! You should be able to use some css code to override the round avatar and have a square one. Does your theme have an option to check square or rounded avatar?
