I don't think I ever addressed the new look of this blog. It is to go along with the new (well, a few months old already) look of my website: www.timidmonsters.com
See how they match all fancy-like? I do miss the bright orange of the old look, but for the sake of consistency, branding, et cetera, I went along with the idea of changing it.
Oh, by the way! I have a new website with a new look. In case you didn't get that from the above.
