Blog update

The blog now has a nice new layout, thanks to Blogger in Draft's new Template Designer. I think it now uses space better, and is much more readable (being black text on a white background, and not the other way around). Playing around with the Template Designer has been heaps of fun, and a great way to procrastinate.

After playing around with the new Pages feature, I have created an 'About' page, with some information about myself and what I do. Currently the 'Home' and 'About' page links are on the left of the page, though I'm still not sure where they should be (I wasn't much of a fan of having the Pages tabs at the top of the screen, though that might work better if I end up adding more pages in the future). I just wish the pages allowed for greater customisation - removal of the sidebars for example - instead of being identical to blog posts.

I have this neat library software on my Mac called Delicious Library. I've been having fun with the 'publish' feature, and decided to 'publish' my Gene Wolfe bookshelves – you can view them here. I'll add more shelves as I get to know the software a bit better.

Now, time to get back to re-reading The Book of the Long Sun and drinking Ceylon Orange Pekoe tea...

  1. Apparently some people have had trouble with the new layout while using older web browsers. If you're having problems, try upgrading to the latest version of your browser - or better yet, just use Firefox :D
