Look ma, I re-designed my (other) blog!
I hadn’t checked Google Analytics for OWOB in over a year, and in addition to learning the most popular search term for the site by far is “graduation” (I guess that’s just people really connecting with B Michael’s take on the Kanye discography), I also saw that now there are a bit more than – as back then – just three hundred or so people a day viewing the site outside of Tumblr. So I felt I had to make the blog a bit prettier and less broken for those (especially on mobile devices) and update a few of the sections while I’m at it. There’s a new “about” page, new blogroll, plus archives in chronological and alphabetical order now. Lots of love to Dave for letting me use some of his shots for the header.
I also learnt that the safest way to meltdown is to play a bit of Photoshop: How Hard Can It Be? and So You Think You Can CSS? while you watch your design break in random places as you try to tweak the text margins just a teensy bit.
The thing I was/am most unsure about is text width/line length. I’ve narrowed it down considerably from the theme’s original setting, but I’d wager it’s still a bit wider than internet average. I’m a little torn between thinking it reads/looks fine now, and feeling it could be narrower still. Let me know if you think so!?
