Some Blog Changes
I'm finally getting around to making some changes on this blog. No more orange text on an orange background ... I went with the clean Iconic style from Carrie Patri. It still needs some tweaks, but I'm happy with how it's holding together so far.
I'm also experimenting with using Vox as a place to keep all of my "media" ... recent movies, what I've been listenting to, and books. See my Vox space, "Beyond the Blog". It's still a bit rough, but I really like the potential. I like how they have Atom feeds for each of the categories of media. I burned each of those feeds at FeedBurner and used BuzzBoost to power some of the sections of the left rail. Sure wish I could make some of those pictures smaller! That's a feedback item for the Vox team.
All of the feeds from before still work -- the main feed (with del.icio.us links spliced in), the comments feed, and a microfeed for each item's comments. I'll probably also try to get some of the Vox stuff spliced in as well. Oh, I added a FeedBurner email subscription option as well.
I hated the look of my blog so much before that I resisted posting anything. Now I can come up with an entirely new reason for not posting.
