Style Over Substance

Tuesday, May 11th, 2004, 12:58 pm

As everyone keeping a blog knows, Blogger updated their site and gave we scribblers many new templates to play with, and when I saw a template called “Rounders 3” I knew I had to make the change. I think this is a vast improvement over my previous format, I think it’s much easier on the eyes and will hopefully allow my patient readers to enjoy my rants without too much eyestrain.

The only bad thing is that, by deciding to go with Blogger’s new comments feature, I lose all my old comments. There’s probably a way to get around this, but I don’t yet know what it is. So if you read any of my previous posts and want to comment feel free to use the thingy for this post.

Actually, there are 2 bad things–I have to update my link list again. Yuck. Cut and paste time.

Now if we can just get Iggy to change his Creamsicle layout we’ll be in business.

    OK, here I am testing the comment feature, and feeling oh-so-good about it.

    I’m not sure I like this function better than Haloscan’s comments widget. I’m still on the fence for now.

    Nice new layout though…

    I just wonder if this format, while nicer-looking than the orange thing you had, and Iggy still has, and I started with, is going to become as repetetive and old as the orange blog, or the lowercase-block-letter blog, and so on, are now. The Extremely Young Poker Player has your same format, too, and I wonder if we’ll get tired of this.

    On the other hand, I put a lot of work into my blog’s format, even if it isn’t perfect yet, and I think on its own terms this is a more attractive format. Sigh.
