A Slight Revamp

Bookmark and Share

You might not notice it, but there have been a few changes in the blog these past few days. Some of them have been physical - you might notice that the box surrounding the blog title has become, um, whiter. Or that the links are now orange. Or that ugly-looking widget that people can use to subscribe to my blog. Seriously, it's a nice tool, but it's ugly as hell. I'm thinking of getting rid of that.

But it's what you can't see in this blog that really makes this baby rock. Let me tell you, right here, and right now, that my blog - The Mezzanine of the Zeppelin of Burning Dreams - is at least fifty times more kickass than it used to be.

If you just hit that "read more" link right there, then yes, that's pretty much the reason why this blog has gone from adolescent boy to pure testosterone-filled manhood. See, I have this penchant for writing massively long diatribes about this and that, and some people just don't have the patience to read all that.

It also takes up a lot of space, and I am, if anything, addicted to space-efficiency. Why do you think I want to get rid of that optional RSS feeder right there? It's large, it's clunky, and I feel like I'm pimping something.

Anyway, that's pretty much all that I have to say for today. Let it be said that it took an entire morning's worth of work, but upgrading the template of the Mezzanine was probably one of the best things I could have done for it. Now if only somebody can help me fix my Multiply page.


  1. Show me how you do that.

    That Read More thing.


    I'll give you cookies? :D

  2. it is an secret. XD

    seriously, though - just search for "post summaries for blogger" in google. should come up with something. and you need to be using the advanced templating feature of blogger - the one where you can arrange the widgets boxes on the sidebar. you just add a couple of bits of code to your html, and you're done. it's pretty easy. :D

  3. Awesome~! Now my only problem is having the time to do it. x3 Thanks~!
