There will be some changes to the appearance of FWB in the next few weeks. Some experimental, some permanent. The blog is a work in progress.
The primary aim of these changes is two-fold:
First, to make the comments section more easily readable and accessible. I don’t know about you, but I get a little lost sometimes with the amount of scrolling I have to do the way the comments section is set up now. We’re going to experiment with some ideas, like using a smaller font, boxing the comments, or numbering, “zebra”-ing, nesting, etc. Hopefully, we’ll come up with a format that readers like, and that enhances the discussion.
Second, to add some advertising to the site. As I hope many of you have noticed, I have (to my own great surprise) put a lot of time and energy into building this blog over the last two years. It’s been a labor of love, but unfortunately, much of the time and energy I have invested has come at the expense of my day job (or night job, as it were). Since I am a working stiff, I can’t really justify continuing to invest so much time on this blog — as much as I enjoy it — without attempting to make some sort of business of it, however small.
So, while I am aware that adding advertising could potentially be annoying to my regular readers, I hope you won’t begrudge me for doing it. It ain’t no easy thing, keeping the ever-ravenous Thaiblonde in ribeyes, black and blue.
Please feel free to offer up your input on any changes you see, or would like to see. I am collaborating with a friend on the design, so none of the changes will be chiseled in stone, everything can be modified.
As ever, thanks for reading!
