Now look what you did...

Well, I've been thinking for a while that it might be time to change the template. For one thing, I had messed with the last one so much the code was kinda like CSS/HTML vomit: you couldn't kinda tell what it was supposed to be, but you really didn't want to look at for too long.

Also, Blogger (where I blog) now has some cool WYSIWYG features for their "new" templates that pride...and laziness...were holding me back from.

That said, I was still taking my sweet time getting to the conversion, until I went in to make a just a few tweaks to my previous template. A "Save" later and the blog was basically useless - I don't think it was showing the posts at all, and well, that's kind of a deal-breaker.

So here we are, with the 2nd new template of the day (if you're looking at rounded rectangles on a blue background that is...if not, then I've messed with it AGAIN since I wrote this).

This one has a lot of what I'm looking for (in case you cared) - like a good window casing, or a rental tux, it shrinks and expands a little bit, but not enough to get too bent outta shape. It's easy to read, works with the stuff I'm adding, and hip enough to look like I might know what I'm doing. I have no idea if it works on iPhones, Blackberries or with every browser on the block - but I can bet my old template had issues in at least some of these areas.

Anyway, I'm sure they'll be more edits, etc. as time moves forward. Just wanted to let you know that if you thought this was now a new blog you're outta luck.

You're still stuck with this one.


  1. And all of this is important to those of us who read your posts through an rss feed WHY???


  2. good point...

    ...I wonder if I can screw up the RSS feeds as bad as I screwed up the blog template...

  3. looks fine to me. Funnily enough I stumbled on this blog on the day I changed MY template.

  4. No blue background...some green to the side
