I have been toying with this idea for a while, and I finally realized that if I am ever going to get back into writing on a regular basis, I needed to revamp the format of this journal into something that lets me be more flexible when I write. I'm not going to turn this into a snippet blog, because I cannot stand them myself. But this format has been working far better for me over at Knit One, Purr Too for over a year and I guess it just took me longer to accept that I needed to make a few changes over here too. Hence the brand new look - at least for the main page. The individual entry pages will remain as they are for now, since I am picky enough to prefer to leave entries from each incarnation of the journal just as they were when I wrote them. I am hoping to eventually figure out a way to 'freeze' the last few years, yet still use Movable Type. I suspect this is going to require me learning certain code languages I have heretofor avoided.
Anyway, I like this new format. It's less colorful than anything I've used before, and there are certainly fewer graphics, but I think that somehow it suits me.
Welcome to the new look.
