It's been a long time in the working, especially because I needed to learn all that CSS stuff.
The colour scheme is vaguely Romanian, with the red, yellow and blue, though muted as to not blind. I find the colours slightly depressing and will mull over them. But maybe I'll get used to the new me.
I've also decided to try out the Blogger commenting system; Haloscan erases my comments after a certain number of comments and I've lost all my early comments as a result. Perhaps Blogger will be nicer?
I have disabled Haloscan for now and will look over my comments later to see if there are any that I need to respond to.
My blog links are gone, replaced with a link to my Bloglines account. I haven't added everyone yet to Bloglines; hopefully everyone has an RSS feed.
Not having blogrolls on one's front page is a blogging faux pas; the whole linking thing, however, strikes me as a little highschoolish. I myself find it embarrassing when someone de-links to me. I have heard that links in blogposts are worth more in the universal scheme of things, so I will try referring readers to great bloggers in my posts.
Then there's the question of categories. I'd really like to have them; Blogger prevents me from editting anything beyond
First, I would need to figure out how to add categories. Blogger doesn't support categories. What I've read, from other Blogger users, is not promising. I'll keep looking.
Finally I will be adding drawings to this site as I merge it with my former illustration blog. Narwhals, of course, the so-called "corpse whale" and the creature from which the Inuit procure maktaaq. I've been tinkering with sperm whales and a baleen whale or two, when I should have been concentrating on my subcutaneous fatty namesake.
Let me know what you think and where I could make improvements.
Thank you for reading!
PS Thank you to Matt for all the free design consulting.
Yeah, right, anonymous, and get stuck with a ton of spam?
Thanks, David! I can't wait for the picture!
I like the colors! I think Charles is the only one without an RSS feed. (If you find one let me know. Not that he ever posts much nowdays anyway. Bad Charles!)
The tortured type :) reminds me of 1) Edward Gorey, 2) The Decemberists.
Yeah, for people like Charles, I'll just have to manually visit his site.Post a Comment
Thanks, Rurality! The tortured type is the same one I've used in the title for the last few months.
