Time for a new look!

It's been a couple of years since the blog was started and Blogger has moved on since then with a new interface, revised templates and many different ways of doing things.  Normally I'm firmly in the camp of 'If it ain't broke, don't fix it' when it comes to changes such as these but the new templates add so much more functionality for users / readers (that might not be immediately obvious) that I figured it was time to move on.

So, here it is, for now anyways.  The new Blog look.  I'm not entirely happy with some of the layout and colours yet so there may be some changes in the weeks ahead.  Hopefully the changes will not have adversely affected any readers in terms of the devices used to read the blog.

Main things I'm not really sure about:

1) Black or a transparent background to posts? But I think reading against the swirls of the background might get tiring.

2) Borders around each post?

3) Borders around the clusters of links, pictures and such like to the right.


I'm sure it'll all get sorted before long.  I have also ensured that the mobile device version of the blog will be the site visited by default if accessing from smart phones and such like.

Any feedback welcome.

  1. Thanks. The change to the new template wasn't totally painless :-( Aligning the title etc to the right took some figuring. May tinker a bit over next few days but will let it settle for a while I think. Not enough time to play with stuff like this, esp as I've been messing with broken applications like RSS Graffiti. Luckily 'Networked Blogs' works.
