Site Redesign

As eagle-eyed readers will see, I have taken advantage of new features on offer from our kindly hosts at Blogger to redesign S.P. for the new age. The old design always looked a bit unimaginative to me, blogging being a visual art, to some extent, as well as a written one. Wonder how long it'll take me to become dissatisfied with this one? Probably the next time I have a Sunday as soul-destroyingly dull and empty as the one I'm labouring through now.
So what do readers think?

Personally I would try decreasing the font size. If you go into 'Edit Template' and change this setting:

.post {
margin:0px 0px 30px 0px;
font-size:100%;
}

To this

.post {
margin:0px 0px 30px 0px;
font-size:85%;
}

It might look a little less er big! Experiment with % sizes to see what you prefer.

I'll give it a whirl and see what happens. It does look rather imposing right now, doesn't it?
Thanks for the technical advice, Gary. As you know, I am a hardcore idiot when it comes to these matters.

Being knowledgable is just being interested. I know sod all about cars or football.

Computers, Women, Music, Cinema, Sleeping - they're my passions, though not nesseserily in that order.

Am I overloading you with comments today LOL

Bruce Hodder said...

I could never be overloaded with comments. As I think you said somewhere, they're what validates the whole solitary exercise of blogging. Plus I hate Sundays with a passion, 'cos they tend to be the only day of the week when I don't see anybody, and I've lost all of the personal resources that used to make my own company such a thoroughgoing delight.

I redid mine recently too. I went for the minimal stripes borders and logos. If I have a cool photo I want to put up, I do it. I don't know.

I come for the writing, my man.

B., you make good sense, as always. If the writing isn't interesting, no amount of photographs will keep the reader returning day after day.

(Bobby's blog "Skullbolt", by the way, has some extremely good writing on it, and if you haven't looked at it yet, click on the link in "Reading and Listening" and go over there for a nose around.But make sure you come back to "Suffolk Punch" afterwards.)
