Change Is in the Air

I've been slack in blogging in the last couple years - I hate it, but there it is. I miss it; yet oodles of new content just isn't pouring into my mind as it used to be.

As of late, I've picked up some of the slack - hope there is still someone around to notice - and, as I knew it would, the itch for change began.

It happened when I started back up with my graving blog, A Graver's Journal; new ideas, fresh content, and a sudden renewal of passionate interest in the project morphed into a sudden, persistent desire for an updated look and feel. It happens every time - with every blog and each website I've ever created and left behind in pursuit of different things and later came back to. I couldn't tell you if its the want of a fresh start on a clean slate, or if the new look just helps to inspire me to continue on with my renewed interest (rather than dropping it and moving on to something else in a few days, which I've been known to do).

It could just be, too, that I love designing, creating, or even modifying web content and jump at the chance to do so. It isn't that I don't like the current design of Sunshine and Farts; far from it. I love this theme - yet it is old and updates are no longer provided by its original creator and designer. It lacks a lot of the new, nifty features that WordPress 2.3.3 offers and has given me fits on a number of occasions with odd quirks and mild annoyances that plague me in my inability to fix them (the latest, that the "Comments" link doesn't appear on a post's direct page link - you can only comment on a post if you get to it by going through the site's main page).

And so, after much debate and back-and-forth haggling with my inner muse, I decided that it was, indeed, time for a change. Sweetness has been my theme since the move over to WP in March 2006, and since when I have kept any design or theme for that long? When this blog, then known as anima, was on Blogger, I changed the theme every couple of months or so.

So, after all of that blathering on that you likely could care less about, I will be spending the remainder of my evening searching for - and then modifying to my desired outcome - a new WP theme for this blog. Next time we meet, all will be - hopefully - changed and modernized for your viewing (and my blogging) pleasure.

Until then...

    I do accept as true with all of the concepts
    you have presented in your post. They are really convincing and will certainly work.

    Still, the posts are very brief for beginners.
    May you please prolong them a little from subsequent time?
    Thank you for the post.

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!

    I do enjoy the way you have framed this specific problem and it does indeed offer me a lot of fodder for thought. However, from what precisely I have observed, I simply trust when the actual responses stack on that people stay on issue and in no way embark upon a soap box of some other news du jour. All the same, thank you for this superb point and even though I do not really agree with the idea in totality, I respect the point of view.
