OK, so we’ve had our first face-lift for Intersections…and I think it’s a nice change of pace.
A few readers requested a larger font size, and although I couldn’t accommodate in the way I wanted (well, to be honest…it would cost me extra as a Word Press upgrade…but I have two kids, you know?) but it’s still larger than the old scheme. I also changed the background color to have a nice black/white contrast with a little buff and orange thrown in for good measure. Another nice feature that won’t have you reaching for your bi-focals is that all posts are now the same size as opposed to the lead post being legible, and previous posts looking like the fine print of a credit card application. If you don’t currently use bi-focals, just wait a few years…you will. You’ll know it’s time when you start reading the newspaper at arms’ length.
As far as everything else goes:
NEW POSTS will continue on an almost-daily basis (hey, sometimes I run out of ideas or get caught up in this little fatherhood gig I’ve had going for the past 11 years) and will be posted after 7PM Eastern Standard Time (-5 GMT). COMMENTS will remain unedited and unmoderated, unless we get a plethora of Trolls that have suddenly decided that standing guard by their usual bridges is a bit boring. CLICK ON THE TITLE OF A POST to see that post and all comments beneath it and/or make a comment yourself. USE THE ARCHIVE CALENDAR to search for a particular post from whenever, and FEEL FREE TO VISIT THE LINKS I HAVE POSTED. The mainstream media I watch is up there as well as some other wonderful blogs and websites I visit daily. They are nice people…they don’t bite, trust me.
So that’s my bit of housekeeping and instructions on how to play nice in the Intersections sandbox. As always, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any comments or suggestions you have and want to take “off line”.
Thanks for reading for the past few months! A new post tomorrow…promise! I leave you with a quote from the great Theologian Paul Tillich (not that someone who I have not even thought about or read since college, but happened to be brought up in a conversation about music, of all things, on another site):
“I have come to bring faith to the doubtful. And I have come to bring doubt to the faithful.” – Paul Tillich
