The New Look…Again
For the first time in at least a year, I’m updating my blog by typing into the text box and hitting publish instead of copying in a previously written post and scheduling it for later. Who knows what madness will be unleashed when I don’t have a few days of sobering up to realize the stupidity of the words vomited out of my fingers.
Yes, I wrote that. I’m also tired and I write/say weird things when I’m tired. It’s basically the reason why I try to schedule these things in advance.
Anyway, the reason for all this is because, as I assume you’ve noticed, I changed up the blog design again. The last time I switched it up, it was from that disastrous experiment with…what was it called? Dynamic views? Hated that, although it was interesting to do something completely different. It was new, it was unique, and I thought it had potential. Unfortunately, that potential turned out to be mostly pissing me off.
In that particular incident, the cons far outweighed the pros. Infinite scrolling! Yay! Oh wait. Almost none of the add-ons are compatible? And I’m supposed to like this? You’d think the company responsible for Chrome and gmail would never produce a lemon the size of a dwarf planet, but it does happen at times.
Again, tired. I’m probably going to blame a few more things on exhaustion, either here or on Twitter. So don’t be surprised.
Do you like it? If you don’t, it probably won’t change anything. I find the squares soothing. Even though I’m not the one usually visiting my blog. But whatevs.
Later! Off to check other people’s blogs and I assume say weird stuff there instead.

Hmm... vomiting fingers. That's an interesting visual.ReplyDelete
I like it. It's much easier on the eyes than the white on black background was.ReplyDelete
Which reminds me, it's been way too long since I switched up my blog's look.
The design looks good to me.ReplyDelete
Now blogger really has put the old format behind though, and forced those of us who were holding out to the classic version into it. I've been annoyed by it for a few days now.
I thought something looked different. I like it. :)ReplyDelete
