I went with a personal plan, which gave me a custom domain. The old address still works, so you don’t have to change your bookmarks, but the address above works just as well.
New Instagram Account!
I got an Instagram account a while back, and as people are often wont to do, I went a little crazy following people. Anyway, the other day I was looking at my timeline, and started asking myself, “Did I actually follow them?” I started deleting the users one by one, which is a time-consuming task becaue every time you try and delete someone, it comes back and asks “Are you sure you want to delete them?” Finally, last night I said “screw this,” set up a new account, and copied the users I wanted to follow from my old one (because I couldn’t find a way to do it with a bulk add, which would have taken twenty minutes and everything would be hunky-dory). Eventually (I said on my old account I was going to do it tomorrow, but I managed to hit a ceiling and they won’t let me follow any more until Sunday) I’ll delete the old account.
Anyway, the social media widget on the upper right now points at my new Instagram account, if you want to follow me there.
If the powers that be that run Instagram (who are the same powers that be that run Facebook) would stop trying to decide for me what I want to see and just give me everything in chronological order, this wouldn’t have been necessary, but no….
Now Available: The Two For Tuesday Index
You’ll notice I’ve done some housekeeping over on the sidebar, moving the special pages of the blog close to the top of the column, removing the calendar (since I have the latest posts listed) and the Feedly link, and putting headings on everything.
I’ve added a “special page”: an index to all the artists I’ve featured on “Two for Tuesday.” I did this as much for me as for you, because you might remember I had a hard time remembering who all I’ve done. I’ll update it whenever I publish a “Two for Tuesday.” At least that’s the plan…
Take a look and tell me what you think!
Well, So Much For That Idea…
I’m sure some of you read that I was using a new theme and immediately swapped over to see what the new theme looked like. Well, my brother Kip did from his cellphone and he couldn’t read anything. Evidently, whoever built the theme I had intended on using didn’t include a corresponding mobile theme, so WordPress just used the desktop one, shrunk down to fit iOS and Android phones. I thought that switching on the mobile options would fix it, and it only got worse.
So, I’ve restored the theme I had out here, at least until I can find a theme that looks as good on smartphones and tablets as it does on a 27″ monitor. For those of you who use WordPress.com, you might want to set up a test blog where you can test things like that.
So, what do you think?
Deborah over at Container Chronicles was having some misgivings about the look of her blog. I went over and took a look, and I liked it so much I decided to change mine to the style she’s using. I like that it has a wider column for the blog entries and that the font is smaller and (I think) easier to read.
So, do you like it? What would you change, if anything?
