I’ve been working on a redesign of this blog for a while now, on and off, and it’s finally close to done. At the same time I’m updating a lot of my posts to add more inline photos. It hit me, looking at other more photo-intensive blogs (like the lovely Life for Beginners), that my posts are mostly unbroken walls of text. Even those that aren’t, just have a few modest thumbnails linking to their respective Flickr pages.
Well, that just won’t do. Not only will more photos make my brilliant words easier to read, but visitors won’t have to click to another page to get the story. It’s win-win!
I’ll be adding other elements, too, like gravatars and pull quotes. Maybe an abstract for the very long ones. And drop caps, too? We’ll see. Thinking visually is still new to me, but I’m getting the hang of it!
