Blog Format Change

Well, I've been blogging for a lot of years now, and during all that time I've not changed the background. I probably still wouldn't have if my template hadn't gotten corrupted. Apparently, Amazon changed some of their links and my sidebar suddenly lost all the images of my books and instead showed some meaningless political message.

With some dread, I set out to update my format. I figured it was going to be a huge pain in the butt. Instead, blogger made it virtually painless.I chose the simple template and blogger did all the work with uploading the actual posts. All of the long and laborious links to other blogs disappeared of course, as well as all the links on Amazon to my books. However, the links badly needed updating anyway. I've put in a few links anew, ones that link to my Amazon author's page and my Wildside Press page, but haven't gotten around to any other links yet. Not sure when that will happen, if ever.

So what do you think? Does the new format look OK to everyone?

Distinctive and uncluttered . . . A+

I like it. If I wasn't a coward, I'd change mine too. Nine years is probably enough.

The format looks fine

I read most all posts via Feedly so...it looks great! :-)

R. T., thanks, man

Patti, it was much less daunting than I feared.

Sage, thanks!

Scott, I read most posts that way as well. thanks

Congratulations! Hmmm, we should update more than my header photo!

Oww, I hate messing with stuff like that. :/ The result is nice and basic, though. I like a clean layout, where the emphasis is on reading the blog post.

Pretty cool, Charles. I have had no problem with Blogger since 2009. Touching wood.

Nice and easy on the eyes, Charles.

It's fine, my friend. I know the links and covers will be time consuming.
