You will have noticed that things look a bit different hereabouts. Don’t worry, it’s only superficial.
Following pressure by a certain local news aggregator – and I won’t mention The YamYam by name, especially the boy Blackstock – I’ve changed the blog theme for technical reasons. For over three years, I’ve used a theme I loved called ‘Mistylook’, but WordPress – the wonderful people who host this blog – haven’t been updating it to follow changes in technology. One of those things on a techy level is ‘featured images’.
When the blog appears in sites like The YamYam, I only get my profile picture by the story instead of an image from the post. Hopefully, this will correct the issue, as well as enabling new style photo galleries, wider default images and other top tech wonkery that most readers won’t notice, but make me feel like a mad blogging wizard. Which I’m not, but is nice to feel in control once in a while.
Please bear with me while I fiddle with these, and the theme may yet change again. Rest assured that all content is safe and any changes are only surface deep. But everyone needs a new jacket once in a while.
