Those visiting Wowalone today may have noticed that the blog's layout has changed, hopefully for the better. The changes are minor and mostly aesthetic.
When I started this blog I hadn't expected it would become so popular. A lot of this is thanks to Wow.com who featured some of my articles under their Daily Quest topic. I was even more surprised when they dedicated a whole article to my series of articles for Solo Beast Master Hunters (spec, glyphs and gear) a couple of days ago.
As the first commenter posted rightfully under Wow.com's article, Wowalone was very hard to read because there was a lot of text on the page squeezed into a narrow column. To my defense, I was using Blogger's default template and I didn't like it much either.
Thanks to the very positive response showed by the readers (and I thank them for it), I decided to get my ass in high gear and remedy the situation. To this end, I have tweaked the layout a bit and the result is what you see as of now (subject to future change).
First, I made the main column wider. Then, I changed the background from black to dark grey. This lowered the contrast, making the text easier to the eyes. Afterwards, I added an even lighter background to the main column and changed the font to a more legible one. I applied a similar treatment to the comments and they now stand out better. Finally, I tweaked the left navigation categories.
Once again, a big THANK YOU to my readers who inspire me to continue writing and making small improvements to the site and also thanks to Wow.com who enable small blogs such as this one to reach out to a larger audience.
