Unless you haven’t been here for a while, you might have noticed the new WordPress theme. It’s still black and white — I don’t want there to be too many distractions 🙂 – but the layout is clearer and a little bit better spaced.
The big thing, and I mean that literally, is the font size. Holy, cow!
On the preview and test system, I thought it was OK, but reading through the site to verify that everything looks right, I can’t help but wonder if it isn’t a bit too big, distracting even.
Let me know what you think. As always, comments are encouraged, but if you prefer private communications, that’s find too; drop me a line.
New WordPress Theme
If you know anything about blogs, you probably are already aware that ADDessories is run on WordPress. The new theme that is being used is called Cleanr. No, that is not a typo, there is no "e" in the theme name. I guess that is for branding purposes.
The theme promises clean and clear, and it delivers. It also mentions BIG. I just can’t decide if I agree that bigger, as implemented in the theme, is more readable or not. The good news is that it didn’t break anything.
I have also taken this opportunity to sneak in a couple of unobtrusive (I hope) Google Ads. My goal for this site is to disseminate real world tips that are usable for adults with ADD / ADHD as well as for teens with ADD / ADHD. It seems to me that this is the area that is woefully lacking in all of the ADD books and publications out there.
Once you understand what ADD is and how ADHD affects adults and kids then you need to be able to do something about it. Do something that takes that new found understanding and gives you the power to do what you have always wanted to do.
Hopefully, I’ve started doing that already.
What is coming (sorry about the delays, there are more details to making something than I thought) are custom designed accessories for people with ADHD-ADD. These accessories are little things really, that just make it a little bit easier to come out where you want to with regards to some of those little things that seem to bite us in the butt each day.
My goal is to make money by selling these accessories, and maybe some eBooks or regular books that help fill in the niche. Advertising isn’t a main goal, but, I figure it doesn’t hurt, and since I’m not some jerk who is going to program surprise pop-up windows in your face or anything, I thought it would be OK.
Just one thing, though. I don’t control these ads. They come from Google and I have no idea what will or will not show up on the site. They might be the greatest thing since sliced bread, or they might be total scumbag scams. (I’ll try and get rid of those if I can.)
The point is, I do not endorse any of the websites or products that appear in the ads. Use your judgment and common sense and read the articles on this site to make the best decisions for you and your family.
