Change You Can Complain About

I'd like to warn all my readers that I'm starting to delve into the big, scary world of HTML with the goal of changing the way my blog looks.  This mostly involves manipulating the Blogger templates rather than actually writing my own code, because HTML is hard.  Anyway, I just wanted to give you all a chance to make note of all these changes and respond with a general outcry.  I look forward to receiving your confused, angered comments, which will then prompt me to try to make more, even bigger changes to please you, at which point I will likely ruin my entire layout and possibly delete my whole blog by accident because I really don't know what I'm doing.  So maybe you should think twice about that, but the option is open.

Look for more changes in the days ahead.  Tonight's goal was to change the header (done!), add a footer or two, and add my own drawings in the sidebar, with Ari helping me.  Ari does not claim to be an HTML expert, but he still has a better understanding of it than I do.

As you can see though, we only got the header done, because I started to fear for Ari's sanity.  We've only been married three days, which is a little early in the marriage for the husband to be going insane.

But maybe we'll do all that other stuff eventually, once he's had time to recover and is forming polysyllabic words again.

While playing around with my blog settings, I also changed some other things.  For example, now you can leave comments on my blog even if you don't have a Google/Blogger account, and if you want to leave an especially mean or creepy comment, you can do so anonymously!  Isn't that cool?  I'm not really in a position to turn down any form of attention right now.  I can't believe I didn't do this sooner.

Now go forth, faithful readers, and make my blog look like something people read!


  1. Quick comment because I can without signing in!

    Good job!

  2. This is what we really marry for, and why geeks will rule the world. They might be a tad insane from all that tech knowledge but they will rule nonetheless.

    I can't think of a complaint yet but its early so I'll be back...
