“Tis the season of wrapping up loose ends. One of my loose ends is blog maintenance.
While I was making my list of upgrades and such to tackle, it occurred to me that it’s been a few years since I’ve done anything different with the look of this blog. I’m not unhappy with it now, but I’d like to explore a few possibilities. What better time than when I’m pet-sitting for two weeks and y’all are out celebrating?
So consider yourself warned: Starting next week, I’ll be “tinkering” and given my skill level with WordPress, there may be a few glass shards and perhaps a muffled boom or two. (This is why “Make Multiple Back-ups” is #1 on my to-do list!)
One of the goals in this project is to ensure that the content here is readable across all platforms and devices. This is where YOU come in, and I’m hoping you’ll help by answering a few questions:
1) On what device do you read this blog? Desktop, laptop, tablet, smartphone…?
2) What browser or operating system do you use? Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, Safari, Internet Explorer and so on
If you’ll kindly let me know in the comments, I’d be forever grateful! Or, if you don’t really care to share that info publicly, feel free to drop me a note via my contact form.
I’m not sure what the results of all this “tinkering” might be, but I doubt you’ll see profound changes. (See: earlier reference to skill set.) A few things I can guarantee you won’t see are
1) auto-play music or video
3) partial RSS feeds (or worse, a partial RSS feed coupled with a “Read More” post)
Unless, of course, I somehow manage to partial feed a “ReadMore” post that requires captcha to kick off a video. If I do, rest assured that
when I finish crying, I’ll get busy on a restore.
I blog partially for myself, but I also have an audience with whom I want to connect and interact. It would be nice if you could read my side of the conversation. To that end, I really appreciate your input!
