Yes, I'm finally back from my vacation from blogging and as you can see I've made quite a few changes here at SFF Chat. After two years of having the same template I decided that my blog could use a bit of sprucing up. I also wanted to bring over all my content from my website since I just don't have the time to maintain it anymore.
So, what do you think?
Really, I want to know.
I probably spent way too much time agonizing about which template to choose and all the various details and options (really, waaay too much time). The main issue that I'm still on-the-fence about though, is the homepage where you just see snippets of each post, which you can click on, rather than the full post. I do think it gives the blog a neater look but I'm wondering if it will prevent visitors from reading the posts.
I would really be interested to receive your feedback on this critical issue. Which layout do you prefer when reading a blog, full posts or summaries that you can click on to read the full post.
I do want to warn you though that I still haven't managed to change everything over from the previous settings. Mainly this means that most of the posts over two weeks old are in a black font that is difficult to see against the new blue background. It will take me a bit of time to get all the posts changed over but it will eventually happen (probably).
Now for the fun part.
I mentioned in my last post that my two year blogging anniversary is coming up and I plan to celebrate it here this week. I've got a fantastic lineup of interviews from some of my favorite bloggers which I will be posting throughout the week and I will be kicking it all off with a giveaway (because what's a blogging celebration without the giving away of free books?)
The first post will be put up later today, so stay tuned.
