Now I am posting excerpts from the last five posts on the home page in what I hope is a more attractive format.
It took a fair amount of research and trial and error on my part to make these changes but it looks like nothing, right?
I’m trying to come up with a better name for the Virtual Adam category of this blog.
As you can see, I’ve been monkeying around with a new “prairie” theme to the website. The seashore theme was boring me. It was a little too monochromatic. I happened to have a good picture of prairie flowers with colors I liked, so I went with it. Hope you like it.
I added the pictures from West Branch to a recent post. Since I’ve upgraded WordPress, I’ve found that they finally added a good photo gallery tool. I’ll be working on retrofitting the old galleries once again.
There’s something wrong with my photo album plug-in, again. I think it has something to do with the host company upgrading the server software. Anyway, it’s going to slow down my posting of new photos. I will correct it as soon as I can.
I’m working on some custom “smilies” for this blog.
The Right brain (creative writing and artwork) section of my website has gone dormant. I’m toying around with posting installments of a short story I’ve been writing on and off over the last couple of years. My creative endeavors is often run out of steam before I finish them. The product never resembles the idea […]
Park ranger stuff has been re-filed under Virtual Adam. I don’t post much park ranger stuff anymore, because my present job is not very exciting and because I don’t like it there. So I don’t have much to add right now. Maybe another time.
I’ve added Ava’s photos of our activities on May 26 and May 27.
I’ve moved my poems, short stories, and other creative works to the Right brain category. I want this site’s content to be driven by the blog posts (the blog functions as a database) rather than static pages. If you are looking for something, use the search function in the sidebar menu. Artwork and some other […]
I added photos to two recent posts: April 29 and May 5
I heard a story on NPR about call for a “Code of Conduct” for the World Wide Web. The idea has been floated and debated by some influential tech bloggers. Proponents claim it would restore civility, accountability, and the confidence of bloggers who get heaped with offensive and threatening messages. Critics call it censorship. I […]
My blog is in general a quiet one, read frequently by my friends and relatives who use it to keep in touch. But today I received a comment here from someone actually threatening to tell my coworkers why I called in sick this week. I posted why–or at least the part I cared to share […]
I think I’ve finally found a good way to display and post photo galleries, so I’ve added a new photo galleries category. As you may have noticed I’ve been busy reposting recent galleries. Let me know how it works.
It’s a little soon for another new look, but the banana yellow, magenta, and royal blue scheme was starting to grate on me. Enjoy the new, smoother Gulf Coast beach theme.
Well it took me half a day yesterday to get this set up here. LiveJournal doesn’t let you export the whole blog at once; you have to do it month by month. My short term goal here is to have the journal ready for when I move to Iowa; I should be able to update […]
I’m blocking anonymous replies to my posts.
And so I begin polluting a perfectly nice blank page. More later.
