Oh, I forgot to mention — I did end up giving the site a minor facelift Friday evening. If this is your first time visiting the site — or if you’ve been here lots of times, but you have the short-term memory of a goldfish — the site used to look like this:
…. Except, you know. Bigger.
The site isn’t hugely different now, except:
- I removed the podcast section, since I don’t seem to be getting around to doing another podcast any time soon. I’m not even sure at this point if I still want to; I’m going to have to give that some thought.
- I got rid of the old header completely, and the new one now has my name instead of the name of the site. I’m thinking that, really, it’s my name I want you to remember when you leave here.
- I got rid of the red-and-cream color scheme. The red is a motif I’ve used since the earliest versions of this site, because of the name. The cream I added because a lot of book sites and literary sites seemed to use a similar color scheme, and I liked that similarity, but …. I dunno, the whole thing together just wasn’t working for me.
Just a few tweaks, really, but I think I’m a lot happier with it now. It looks cool and distant and creepy and elegant. I hope you like it, too. Let me know what you think.
