«Tweaked Ads' Color Pallet»

I changed the colors slightly on the ads in the sidebar and the footer. The one in the sidebar won't show in an item page; it'll only display on the main page or an archive page (or on a blog supplement page).

Instead of blending the ads in, I'm trying a complement-style color pallet. They stand out more, but I don't think they're distracting. They had the same color background as the rest of the page: hexadecimal color code #191919. Now I've changed them to have a background color the same as the header: hexadecimal color code #4F4C48.

I've also added little 14x14 pixel icons in a few places. I've removed the directional arrows that corresponded to the dates in favor of little calendar icons. Also, down at the bottom of each post where it says the time it was posted there's now a little clock icon.


  1. I dont get what the hell your saying.

  2. I didn't even realize you had ads.

  3. @ Anonymous: Basically I'm saying I changed the colors a bit on my Google ads.

    @ Nathaniel: And I think that's part of my problem. However, I don't want them to be annoying, either.


Thanks for taking the time to comment.
