Well, it’s not what I expected either. The “lime green plus water drops” template is off the shelf; of the choices I looked at, it seemed to do the least violence to some of my, um, nonstandard layout choices in the old blog. The colors and images may change — paler or back to white, maybe a different image graphic in the longer run. Since I rather liked my little photo and PSA ad rotation thingies, I’ll install them or something like them down the road.
First, though, I’ll fiddle with dialing up the font size — everybody’s main request a while back was to keep the font size about where I had it. But I’m at the bottom of both WordPress and CSS learning curves, so it may be a while, and I didn’t want to wait around much more.
I spent most of my time figuring out how to move the comments over to this system, or rather, finding the right advice, deciding I might be able to do it, and then making it work while our wireless system kept fritzing out for some reason.
I intend for this to be a more integrated blog/news/causes site, using the “pages” (tabs like “selected posts” along the top) for some of that kind of thing. Don’t really have a model in mind, so the site may get reorganized a few times in that respect too before that settles down.
But enough blog navel gazing; I mainly want to slowly get back to writing a bit about the news and issues I care about. So that’s what I’ll do.
