does the new format work? any comments appreciated.
I like reading your blog as im from near Brum (Stourbridge) but was a nipper when you were frequenting Eddies and alike. It's on wordpress isn;t it? They have some incredible templates to use on there. The one you are using is a little sparse? Not a crit, i'm just looking from a designer's perspective and i hate myself for it! :P
thanks Drop_The_Ball. I'll look at possibilities over the weekend...
there's somewhere in the set up where you can browse templates and try them out and see what they look like with your content. Keep up the good work!
not sure - but I think I've added RSS to the blog, thanks for the comments. I'll shut up now (for a bit).
It's the content that's key. And it's excellent stuff. Still a few years away from my Brum period ('97-'05, give or take short spells away), but things that I was getting into as a young gun are starting to get mentions, which adds interest to what was already a good read. Haha to a couple of mentions of the 50 bus route through Balsall Heath/Moseley. Some things never change.
Format-wise, the 1 post per gig thing is a big bonus for me cos I've now subscribed to the RSS feed and will get an update in Google Reader whenever you post owt new. Rather than having to check back whenever I think about it, or whenever it gets a mention that I see on DiS.
more clicks to read each gig though. quite
happy with before tbh!
thanks for the feedback all...much appreciated. I kind of liked the old one massive page style but it was taking a while to load when viewed and I can see RSS will be a bonus. Also the one entry per gig helps for viewing on a smart phone, etc. I guess the main thing is I get the content written up. Heaven forbid I lose the list before I do this! When it's all written up i'll look at the format, etc before moving onto something new. Cheers folks.
