Oh yeah, we're workin' hard, on the REDESIGN *

This weekend I am going to be doing a little blog renovation, a project that may extend into next week as I try a few new things out, so it could get a little messy around here as I work the kinks out of a few trouble areas (because we all know things never work perfectly the first time you do it). I don't know how drastic some of my changes may be, but I do plan on getting things in a bit better order.

One thing I am vowing to do this weekend however is to remove the all the ads, because really, I am not making any money from them and they are taking up some prime real estate on my sidebar and footer, so in my mind it is worth using that space for other, more deserving elements.

There will be no downtime. My other scheduled articles like the Pageant of the Transmundane and the Culture Kills comic will still be on time, so no need to worry about that. I may even get around to, I don't know, categorizing my entries in my own special way, which is something that I've needed to do for quite some time and at 150 entries, it seemed like it was now or never, so those of you who follow my feed and have it set up to pick up "updated articles"... I apologize in advance.

I was just giving you all a bit of a heads-up, because you know what they say: forewarned is forearmed.

*I took a page from a few bloggers' books and used a song lyric, in this case, Edith Frost's Albany Blues from her Calling over Time album.

dotbar: I've admitted that plaid isn't for everyone, and the background may change... or it may not.

Jason: thanks for the visit/

Do you know how many times I've warned people of an impending redesign? Too many, yet it still looks crapily the same. Maybe I should get on that one day.

Well, I thought if I announced it, I would have to stick with it.

I just tried to do something and... let's just say... I almost destroyed the entire design. I am lucky I had the foresight to back-up this design.
