Mom and Dad had antecedents on both sides of that bloody conflict. Counties were split, towns were split, and families were split. It was never as simple as being the north versus the south.

A New Look


Readership is up a fair amount here at the humble blog site, so I decided it was time for a facelift. A new blog template is always fraught with peril and I blew it trying to enter the Google Analytics tracking code; it took me a day to get everything to work correctly. There will still be some tuning on a few things over the next few days.

The larger font sizes are for my benefit; even with glasses, my eyes are not very good at seeing anything small. The colors are strictly set by the template, my eyes don’t do colors well either. It’s not a condition of aging; my eyes have always been marginal. Even after cataract surgery in both eyes, even with glasses, I still see things differently than most folks. I’m not complaining, just explaining.
EDIT: I finally did mess with the template colors ... it helps me see things.

Looks good, Zack. I have been thinking about fiddling with my blog format, too. It annoys me that so little of the screen real estate is used for the actual text of the blog and I like the way that yours looks.

By the way, I seldom actually visit the web site since I follow your blog via an RSS feed. So you cannot draw reliable conclusions about how many people are reading based on Google Analytics.

Looks good!

I'm thinking of revamping The Rasch Outdoor Chronicles myself. I keep on changing the banner picture, but I'm seriously considering a new template too. I think I may fool around with that tonight!

Steve, you were my first visitor when I switched over to Blogger. We go back years; thanks for being a good friend.

Albert, in all honesty the changes your were making at your site motivated me more than anything else. Very professional looking. Tell Blake I would love to read more from his site. Good hunting and fishing to you both.

Looks good. I quite like the larger font - my eyes are not as young as they used to be.

Thanks, Borepatch. Always good to have you stop in.
