You’ll notice some changes to the ol’ site, and you’ll probably notice more going forward. For starters, a new theme and a new layout. This theme (one of WordPress’s many free layouts) is sort of a throwback to the original blog design, but with some stylistic nods to my most recent effort. Considering this is only the third theme change for my blog in almost four years, I suppose that’s something.
“But why change?” you moan. “I like the old page, with literally all of your blog posts easy to see at once!” you cry like a little baby. “Please give me an orgasm! It’s been so long, and you’re nowhere near as good as you were when we first married! I’m leaving you for a goalie” you screech like my wife. Well, there are several reasons, thank you very much.
For starters, some readers plain didn’t like the old design. Said it was confusing. Yes, you could scroll down and down and down and down to find that Big Bang Theory blog I did in 2011 (that thing STILL gets views) but there was no archive feature, no calendar. It was sort of browsing through a bunch of old back issues of magazines to find that story you wanted.
Also, the old format didn’t allow me to showcase two things I love very much: myself and my friends’ blogs. I love me. I love me so much that I often have physical relations with myself. You can now see my Tweets (EVERY ONE OF THEM IS HILARIOUS!) and my Facebook page (EVERYTHING IS STOLEN FROM REDDIT!) on the right-hand side. But over on the left, beneath the latest and archive blog posts, you’ll see my blogroll is once again visible. This is a list of some fine blogs, many of which are updated a lot more often than this one. You’ll find comedy blogs, entertainment blogs, blogs about roller derby and poetry and comics and heartbreak and pie. I encourage you to check them all out. I know some very talented motherfuckers, and you should get to know them as well.
That’s it for now. I have to research some product info for a big commercial thingy. But take a look round and let me know what you like and don’t like about the new layout. Maybe I’m not done yet. Maybe we need some curtains and laminate flooring. Maybe it’s just fine. Ashley Motia will tell me to my face. Yes sirree bob, she will. Lawd yes. But you can leave a comment below. Just as good.
Thanks for reading.
