Yaarrr!

I've done away with the likes and moved things around a bit. Just in case you're wondering what's different. Off on holiday now so no more updates for a week or so.

OK, my work is done, or half done anyway. I like is all blogged up, with invidual posts, comments, feeds and new improved style sheets (that actually work in Firefox, hooray). I'm hoping this makes it easier for me to write what I want to write as usually I have 3 or 4 posts on the go in my head but only one actually makes it onto the page. I'm also looking forward to comments, but don't know whether to authenticate them or leave them open, or approve them. Any thoughts? I've still got a bit of tidying to do but other than that things should be pretty much as normal. I thought about a proper redesign as this one is 3 years old but then realised I didn't have a single idea in my head which suggests maybe it doesn't need changing. I've also put adverts on the site, which I've dithered about for ages as I don't really like the look of them but I'd like to make some attempt at covering the costs of the site. (Although why does this post about Alain de Botton come up with adverts for Bonnie Tyler?) As a compromise (and nonsensical business decision) I'm keeping them off the front page. I'm also thinking about ditching the monthly likes as they're getting harder and harder to find and I write about what I like anyway. But I don't know, I'm still playing about with things.

I promise the next post will be a bit more interesting but thought I'd better say something in case anyone wonders what's going on. Normal service will be resumed shortly.
