I was never wild about the one tone blue background Domestocrat had since the beginning. I’ve had changing the background of the blog on my mental to-do list for months. I wasn’t sure if I wanted to stick with a color or try to design something myself so I opted for more waiting. That always works, right?
Last week I found myself deep into the rabbit hole of blogs linking to blogs linking to blogs and, don’t even ask me how now, I stumbled on the site Subtle Patterns. Subtle Patterns offers free, tilable, textured patterns for websites and blogs. Their designs are exactly what I was looking for – refined, sweet, pretty. I narrowed it down to three options:
#1 – Arabesque
#2 – Gold Scale
#3 – Washi
I ended up selecting #3! I know in the age of Google Reader the background of a blog may be irrelevant but I think it’s important for new readers. I also think it’s majorly important in terms of making my photography pop.
So what do you think? How did you pick the background for your blog?
