First Entries Are Impossible

And they can slow you down more than they should. Time’s a wasting, and I need a new online home pronto so I’m launching this before it’s fully cooked. The comment and individual entry page styles are a bit of a mess, there are a few important features missing, and I feel like the front door needs a small infusion of warmth. But I’m close enough that continuing working offline is slowing me down from the main purpose for building this thing — to have a place to write things. So here we go.

A few notes on the design for those of you who care about the guts — I’m using The Sandbox as the codebase and styling from there. My goal is to have a cohesive design across this blog and all of the other content that ends up on I’m starting to like how it’s turning out and once it’s at a more stable point in its development I’ll offer the Extraface theme for download.

At this point, I’d be remiss if I didn’t recognize the work of my lead designers, Toofis and Max.

I’ve been working with Toofis(right, with stuffed chipmunk) for four years now, but Max(left) is fairly new to the team. We welcome your comments and suggestions.


  1. “The blog of a thousand posts begins with a single Italian greyhound,” as the wise man once said. The second IG is just showboating though.

  2. Crvs: See that line between the left and right columns? All Max.

    Josh: I’ve got a solution for that. It’s amazing what you can do with virtualization these days.
