Spring Cleaning Notes

A few design tweaks and formatting enhancements have been implemented for the blog and weekly email newsletter.

If you read this blog in your inbox via the weekly newsletter, you will notice that your email looks quite a bit different this week:

  • The formatting has been updated to virtually ‘replicate’ the online reading experience. Several typography improvements should make the newsletter text much easier to read on mobile devices.
  • The newsletter also includes a ‘Discussion Board’ section that shares some of the responses and critiques posted by other readers.

If you have not subscribed to the weekly newsletter yet, give it a try!

If you read this blog in a web browser, you will also notice some enhancements: significantly improved site navigation on mobile devices and an unobtrusive wayfinding menu for full browsers. And I realize this is mostly a nostagic throwback to the Internet circa 2004, but a Discussion Board has also been added to the site as well.

I don’t say this enough, but it should often be repeated: I’m immensely thankful for the WordPress platform and the ecosystem of developers that it has inspired. Without tools like WordPress, this blog and newsletter would not be possible: I’m a writer, not a coder, and I wouldn’t have the foggiest clue how to create this space from scratch. In a spirit of gratitude, I made an acknowledgments page to share the love.
