If you’ve been around here for a while (then really, you should have your head examined because something is seriously, probably fatally, wrong), you may notice a few changes to the site this morning. If this is your first time here, then you’re probably just thinking, “Ooo, shiny!”
It’s about time this place had a facelift.
The overall look didn’t change much, although the guy that did all the fixes — a wonderfully patient man — probably got sick of all my e-mails demanding to “make it softer!” whatever that means. But I think Sean did a fantastic job in softening some rough edges and adding a few things I hope you’ll like.
For starters, there’s now a Daily Photo page. It’s over there to your right. Go on, touch it. (Whoa, not there Pervy McPervyson.) Basically, it’s a new outlet to write about whatever the hell I want. I’m by no means done with parenting essays, but I’m tired of having to pass up interesting photos or thoughts because I feel I’ve pigeonholed this site as a “daddy” site. So you can expect a lot of photos and stories about our sewing, San Francisco history, art, design, architecture, all the great things we see on our daily adventures (see above) and, of course, tranny hookers and drunken circus clowns.
See? Whatever the hell I want.
That’s the biggest change and I’m really excited about offering the world yet another portal into my personal brand of crazy. And if that’s not enough, you’ll also notice the “More Crying” window to the right. It offers a sneak peek at all the work I do for the San Francisco Chronicle’s parenting blog, The Poop, and for Babble.com — two parenting sites I am profoundly proud to contribute to.
The rest of the changes basically make you click around the site more — my shameless attempt to earn more money off those ads on the far, far right. Someone needs to pay for all my fabric.
I hope you enjoy the new look and the new photos and stories to come!
(And yes, we’re still working out a few kinks, so bear with me over the next few days.)
