slash and burn

Astute readers may notice that things are starting to look a little different in this little corner of the blogosphere. After squatting on this piece of digital real estate for over eight years, it was time for a renovation. No more duct taping the torn carpets and painting over the rotting window frames. It was time to gut the homestead, rip out the mouldy joists and rebuild from the ground up.

Rebuilding is not going to happen overnight, but I hope you will enjoy the increased elbow room and the high-end fixtures. Breathe deep for a big lungful of that heady new-blog smell.

Thanks, Chris, I'm pretty happy with it. Time to stop tinkering with the layout and start writing again, I think.

Nice! Finding the right BACKGROUND is painful...good job.

For me, finding the background was actually the easiest part, Jen. It was the never-ending minutiae of adjusting font and colour by the tiniest degrees that killed me.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

As you can immediately tell, I didn't worry at all about photo seamlessness, Jen, although now that I think about it, perhaps I should have...
