New Look for the Blog

As you can see, I've changed the look of The Downward Spiral blog to make it more readable and user friendly. The other good news is that I've finally figured out how to embed links (please bear with me, even though I'm a Gen-X'er, I'm an OLD Gen-X'er...meaning computer stuff doesn't come naturally to me).

More positive changes are coming, but I'll fill you in on those when I make them.



  1. While you are changing the look of your blog I sure wish that you would change from white text on black background. That's awfully hard to read

    Thanks . . Alan

  2. Not Bill: I have to agree with Redbriars. White on black is a lot of strain on the eyes for anything except short passages or headings. Also, the neon pink and green text with the angled background lines may make for a "hip, edgy" look, but personally I find it jangles my nerves to look at it very long (and my nerves these days are already jangled enough!). I know ... everybody's a critic.

  3. Okay guys, you've convinced me. I'll play around with it a bit.

  4. Better. Thanks for the black on white text.

  5. @Patrick - no problem. I liked the way the other scheme looked, but I don't want to lose readers because of something so trivial.
