We Interrupt This Program


Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!

Two events are going to put a slight zig in the zag of this blog over the next week. Even if you follow my blog religiously, you may not notice either one of them, but I think it’s good practice to have full disclosure.

Facelift
After some careful consideration and advice from friends and family, I’ll be testing out a new theme (MistyLook) and layout for the site this week. The aim is to increase readability, improve access, and to speed up the reader experience on the site. Thanks to WordPress’s almost seamless theme integration, the only thing you may notice is your own sigh of relief as you read my 600-1200 words post in regular black-type-on-a-white background instead of reverse type.

Major changes will be:

  • Black type-on-a-white background for easier reading
  • Wider central column for less scrolling
  • Homepage will be the blog (like the rest of the universe), not fluff text
  • Post summaries with “read more” links instead of entire post
  • Nicer serif to sans-serif font changes for titles vs. content areas

Nothing to do with the theme, but planned-for changes in the future:

  • Richer, more meaningful masthead graphic
  • A side-bar “Best of” list of my better blog posts for easier finding

Hiatus
My wife and I will be taking a short trip to Key West next week. I’ll be scheduling blog posts to keep up the conversation, but may not be able to thank you for commenting or add to the chatter myself. But please know I value each and every comment, “Like”, and pingback!

We’ll be back to our regularly-scheduled commentary by February 24. Thanks for your patience and thank you for following my blog.

    i’ll probably also notice the quality of work stays just as good πŸ˜‰

    but yes, for me, black type on white background’ll definitely be easier on my old eyes; just didn’t want my glasses-aided eyes to be a reason to complain

    after all, i eat fat-free yogurt don’t i? πŸ˜‰

    have a great trip!
