One of my posts is being featured this week on Five Star Friday! I love Five Star Friday — I’ve found many blogs there that I now read on a regular basis. Many, many thanks to whoever submitted my post — I’m super excited and grateful.
In other news, a few very nice people have left me awesome and much appreciated comments about how much they like my blog redesign.
Funny story, there. I’m hosted on WordPress, and while I love WordPress, one thing that bugs is that there are only about 30 different supported themes on the site, and they are completely uncustomizable (I think I just invented a word there). When I first started on WordPress, I picked Blix for my theme — it was the only one I really liked.
Over the years, I’ve often gotten bored with Blix and tested out a few other themes, but they always had something about them I didn’t like, so I always went back to Blix.
Last week, a bug appeared in the Blix theme — rather suddenly, for no real reason — and everyone who was using that theme saw their blog pages blow up. The text was still there, but the formatting was missing; text overlapped or wrapped funny and was just plain ugly.
WordPress was working on it, but after three days they still hadn’t found the problem, so I changed themes.
And now I give you…Regulus by Ben Gillbanks. Totally not designed by me in any way. But I like it, and it’s nice to have a change every once in a while.
So welcome to the new face of Turtlehead. Now award-winning.

Looks good. I kind of noticed a difference in the last comment I left, but I was too tired to pay much attention. I like the moon best!
Congrats on the 5-stars! As for the design, couldn’t you find a stock photo of some poop? Come on, try a little harder for us, would ya? 😉
congratulations. I’ll have to check that site out.
Congratulations on Five Star Friday! I like new look too – fresh and crisp.
Yay for you. The post was a classic.
Yay for the five star friday. I don’t think I have ever heard of that.
I do like your new theme. 🙂
Congrats on being featured on Five Star. I’ll have to go and check out your post! Oh and as big astronomy geek-I LOVE your new design! 🙂
Congratulations!! And I think now I might have to change my theme sometime too. Everyone else is. So much pressure!!
Oooh, I really liked the *old* design, but I think I like this one more. Lovely banner!
