It’s difficult to fathom but in about six months, I will have been blogging for eight years. I started this blog just weeks before I went to grad school, not knowing who the hell would be reading it. I’m estimating I met most of my loyal readers after 2002, those people coming mostly from grad school and the games industry (post-grad school). The rest are probably former classmates from my younger days and those I toiled in QA with.
Well, I’ve been thinking about this for a few days but I believe it’s time for this blog to get a bit of a make-over. I’m still using a blog template that I selected in 2002. I changed the colour scheme about three years ago but the template hasn’t changed cosmetically aside from that. Technology doesn’t stand still however. In seven years, a lot of neat little blog widgets have been developed but since my template is so old, it can’t support them. I did a minor refit a while ago to get a proper commenting system working but that was mostly a patch than a total redesign.
It’s a shame that work is taking up so much of my time but I am now casually looking at new, state-of-the-art blog templates. My intention is to pick a few that I like and hopefully involve you, my loyal readers, in the selection process. This won’t be a quick procedure but I do hope you’ll keep reading in the meantime.
