You’re not the only one, I think a few people liked the old one better too. :)
The advantage of the new theme is that the font allows punctuation, which used to really annoy me. If you’re having difficulty with the change of font I can try to change it? (I’m rubbish at html, but if people are finding it hard to read I can see what I can do?) Let me know! Glad you like the content though, the good thing is that’s staying the same! xx
I just felt like after five years I was due a change.
This one looks more modern & professional, I hated the full page block of text at the top of my last layout in the end, it was so clunky. This one is more versatile; I can easily like to other pages (goodreads/twitter/tags I want to highlight ect). Plus it’s more user friendly; you can reblog from the main page without having to open up each post in a new window. and you can see my tags when scrolling through. Also the search bar on the old one didn’t work properly. In short there are loads of things I like about it, I do miss the nice script on the last one though. Sorry you don’t like it as much, but I hope it grows on you!

"What I know is this: our hearts are stubborn creatures. They always remember how to push a splinter out like a foreign enemy from the body. They want to heal. Even if we didn’t know there was an injury. Even if we loved that splinter like a limb. "
