Those of you who have been reading this blog for a while know that I do this every so often. I get bored and rebuild the site. All that white was bothering my eyes so I took some steps to fix it. I'm not exactly thrilled or disgusted by the current format but it works on Opera, Explorer, Netscape, and Firefox. I can't guarantee it will stay like this but I don't know when I'll next have time to mess with it. If you want to see my old formats go here and my favorite so far here.
I've also added a group of blogs from Truth Laid Bear and linked to a lot of the blogs in his top 50's. Mostly this is so I can glance through them from time to time but I do not vouch for their content. I eliminated a couple which had profanity in their titles and the page which seemed to be all semi-nude oriental women but just glanced through the rest to make sure they actually had blog content.
In further news, since I switched up to Opera 8 I'm using its feed reader to check most blogs. So, the fact you don't see me hitting you from my blawg doesn't mean I've stopped reading it.
The site is now getting about 350-400 individual hits a day (although I'm sure this post won't help those numbers). On the weekends this falls to 150-200. I have no idea how many folks out there are getting the Atom feed I set up a while back and no longer coming to the site. However, when ya'll do come you tend not to stay too long. The average visit seems to be less than 90 seconds.
Any suggestions to improve the site are always welcome. Personally, I'm thinking of going back to the old format which I've parked at Crimlex. These washed out bright whites and grays hurt my eyes after a while. Comments?
