This week I’m on web design duty as we’ve decided to make a few changes to the overall layout of the blog. I wanted to let you know as a warning because if you see any strange goings on on screen it will just be because I’ve played about with something and it isn’t quite behaving.
Change can have a bit of a bad time, especially if you are happy and familiar with the way things work so I’ll just go through what we’re thinking and why we feel that a bit of a change will be a good thing.
The basic functions and simplicity will remain the same, so you can always pop to the home page to see the latest post or catch up with the previous ones easily.
Because our videos are something which we will be doing more and more of we’d like to make an improvement where the videos can be displayed separately to the articles so each is unaffected by the other and it is easy to come along and check our latest video without having to trawl through all of our posts.
We also recognise that for someone new to our blog there’s a lot of old content which is still worth a read but not necessarily that easy to find. I’ll be looking it to ways to categorise posts better and display the categories more prominently.
After a year and a half of blogging we’ve learnt that this blog is about much more than us two wittering about our goings on. We’ve been overwhelmed at times by the incredible input that you as our readers have put in to comments and this has certainly become an important part of it for us. We’ve often been told how much people enjoy reading not only the posts but through the comments as well since the mixture of knowledge and opinions offers much more than one persons point of view. We really do value this and would like if we can to extend this in someway; perhaps we’ll look at creating a discussion topic each week, could be simple could be in depth, and we’ll encourage you to join in.
Most importantly, if you enjoy our blog as it is and are concerned for anything to change then please don’t worry; you’ll be able to carry on reading along as usual. And if you notice anything odd over the next couple of weeks then I’m sorry… that will be me!
