First of all, thanks so much for reading! I really appreciate your input and insights as I consider various issues. Your comments always make my day, especially when they challenge me and force me to think.
Those of you who visit the blog (as opposed to the RSS feed or Facebook) will notice a few changes. First, there’s a new theme, called Punchcut. I hope you like it. I realize it’s gray but I wanted to draw as much attention to the posts as possible.
There are also a few new features:
On the sidebar, you’ll see a featured post area where a new, featured post will appear every time you refresh the page. It’s been a ton of fun to read and a great way for me to see what I used to write.
Now, when you leave comments on the blog, you’ll be able to add some basic HTML to those comments, including links, text markup, etc.
At the end of each post, you’ll see the above button. Click this to share it on various social media sites that you can choose.
Sphere: Related Content
This button will also appear at the end of each post. Click it to see related posts from around the web, including news sites, other blogs, etc. Hopefully, this can present all sides of the debate on various issues or lead you down the path of other interesting ideas.
I think you all know what tags are. Basically, it’s a way to micro-categorize each post so you can more easily find topics you’re interested in.
I’d love to hear what you think of the new theme and the new features. Comments are open!!
