A new look

It's been nearly two years, and I've decided to change the layout of the blog - albeit to another fairly simple Blogger template. While I like the idea of making something that's uniquely me, I don't have either the HTML knowledge or access to the web design software to do anything more exciting. I'm pretty happy with this one, though I wouldn't mind the column being a bit wider - so if anyone knows how I might do that and wants to let me know that'd be great.

Somewhat annoyingly, I've got to go back and reformat some of my old posts 'cause I'd put some code in my old layout to allow the 'read more' function - and that hasn't carried over. On the plus side, I've upgraded to the latest version of the publisher, which has a button for that so I don't need to keep manually adding extra code to each post.

Anyway, hope you like the new look. Feedback and suggestions - genuine suggestions that is1 - are always welcome.

1Because I'm very aware that some of you possess the same juvenile sense of humour as, well, me.


  1. Well, I like it, but I'm a sucker for birds, so you pretty much had me at your top right of screen.

    Also, I think you should do a log post on the Traffic Sources information, like what kind of things people have searched for to end up here, and where people have come from. Unless that's too metareferential for you.

  2. That's a good idea. I'm making notes while I'm reading Les Misérables, but at the rate I'm going it'll be at least another two weeks before I'm finished it. 1200 pages!
