I decided that it was time to change up the old blog a bit. I recently read an article (no, I can't remember where I read it at sadly) that was going on about making your blog look professional. Or people wouldn't take you seriously. To not change the layout every couple weeks or so. And to that I said HA!
What's the point of your blog looking the same all the time? It gets boring seeing the same background, the same layout, the same color scheme all the time. Every day. I like my blog to be more personal. To kind of embody who I am. And I'm a bit chaotic. I change a lot. I have trouble sticking with one thing. And something as simple as changing the way my blog looks makes that easier.
I think I even put in the About section that this blog (as well as myself) was going to be chaotic and crazy and wild and unpredictable. Why not show some of that in the look and layout of the blog.
So if you're reading this you will have noticed I did in fact change the blog. A lot! I threw out the old template entirely and decided to try out one of the dynamic views. I set it on the Sidebar one. So as you can see to the left it will have the titles of my posts. Which you can scroll down and click on and then the post opens in the main section of the blog. Then you can do all the normal share stuff at the bottom, comment and what have you. Then if you look above the post titles on the left you see a drop down thing that has all the different dynamic views and you can freely switch between them if you don't like the Sidebar one I chose.
The only ones I liked are this Sidebar one and the Flipcard one. The others seems jumbled and confusing. The other thing I don't like about using a dynamic view is not being able to add gadgets and stuff. Or at least I can't figure out how to do it yet.
