Blog Birthday and a makeover ;-)


When it was born last year i.e 8th March 2005, my blog didn't look like what it is currently. It looked like this:




In fact, till yesterday it looked like this:




So, for its birthday, I decided that I've had enough pink and lets go for a change again :-D. Hence the birthday gift to my blog this year is a makeover :-D. The first change was done on 28th June 2005 here. Then it was just a revamping of the pink. This time, well, you can see it is anything but pink :).




Oh man!! Can't believe its been an year of blogging. In one year, this blog has seen my confusion, my sadness and ofcourse my lots and lots of happiness. I still haven't completed 100 posts (I'm stuck at 77 and I'm not that avid a blogger :-D). Actually thought of completing 100 posts as a birthday gift, but when you want to write posts, the ideas don't ever occur. So lets say, I just washed my hands off the idea :-p.

The pink has been getting to me for sometime and have had this idea of a change since about a month. But I waited basically because I thought it's be a wonderful idea for the blog birthday :). I basically love the black and white combination. Add grey and you have a great one. I really don't know how I got the idea for the title though, it sort of just hit me. The first title my blog had was "Deep Thoughts" kinda based on the "Hitchhiker to the galaxy" by Doughlas Adams. Secondly "Dip Tea" as my friend Ranjini used to call me. Both were generally related to my name. But now its "Like Duck To Water" and I dunno why :-D. I guess the fact that I had all those duck photos surely helped in deciding the title. I am proud to say that they are all taken by yours truly :). I do hope you all like the way my blog looks as much as I do :).

Meanwhile, 1 year of blogging gone, wonder how many years it'll continue. Hope it does until my last breath.

"Dear blog, wishing you a healthy, wealthy (:-D), happy and a long life"....***

*** Sneaky me, the wish is indirectly for myself, kyun ki for the blog to be healthy, wealthy etc, I have to be exactly those and more ;-) :-D...

Hey,

Happy blog birthday to u!!! Great photos man...For a moment I thought I entered the wrong blog when there was no pink...But then I saw ur photo and was reassured(he!he!)...

It's really a total makeover...Looking good...One small thing though...On the left side, where the text is on the background of photos, it is kind of difficult to read...Can u move the text so all of it is on the white background??

Also, the title of the post is not seen...Don't know why...I think it was better when the heading photo was stationary and the caption was moving...Now, the photo and the caption move together and it is kind of distracting...

Again, the photos are really good...Going to have to get used to not seeing pink...Good luck!! Keep writing...Bega century hodiri...

Looks like your monitor resolution might be the problem. Try and change it to 1024 x 768 pixels and see if it makes a difference. I've made a couple of changes though to make it a bit better. Check your resolution and let me know :).
