Ah, Springtime! It’s a time for new beginnings and fresh starts, don’t you think? I do, and that’s why I decided it was time to update the site’s design.
I’m going to keep screwing around with it until I figure out how to make the blockquotes the right color, and some other things — I want to return to the classic look in essence. It’s an amazing theme with tons of customization, and so I might fiddle around with a bunch of things over the next week. Bear with me, it’s all for the better, children.
UPDATE: Is there anyone reading this who’s good at coding? I fixed some things, then I screwed up something else, of course. I have a couple of questions, please email me if you know your way around CSS.
Earlier than expected, I have sacrificed the old “classic site” with the new blog format.
In order to maximize traffic to the blog area of the site — this area, the one that you’re reading right now — I’ve decided to overwrite the old main page with this. If you wanted to read some of the old content, I’m sorry, but that will be harder to do now. If you don’t care about reading the old stuff that much, but would rather have a single main page, you’re welcome!
The old stuff is still there — for example — but because “index.html” is now deleted, clicking back to main will take you to
the blog an error. I’ll try to create links to all of the main pages so that linking back here won’t be as much of a problem, even though that’s a lazy workaround. Just be grateful for what you get, jerks!
For as much as I liked the unique style of the previous blog format, I just couldn’t live with it. The fact that “Continue Reading” messed up your position in the post, the disorganized way that content was distributed on the main page — I finally decided to just go for a classic approach.
I’ll be tweaking this theme here and there in the coming days and weeks, bear with me.
