Yesterday some of you may have noticed that the ol’ blog looks a bit different. In setting up for 2014, I decided to take some time to upgrade my personal website to look a little more – I dunno – modern? Advanced? Bloggy?
In any case, I wanted it to look better and (in my opinion) it does.
Some of the fun that has come along with the upgrade is the fact that each post offers a “YOU MAY ALSO LIKE…” section at the bottom. As it suggests posts, I get to see my old posts that don’t have thumbnails set up in them since MANY of my older blog posts pre-date the WordPress blog and hail from age of Livejournal (and then Blogger.) Thus, I have an excuse to look at them, re-read them, and add an appropriate thumbnail.
So instead of just writing on my blog, I get to read my old ramblings, too.
My oldest blog post is dated March 29, 2003… over a decade ago. http://www.tomcroom.com/?p=4620
I have a solid ten years of my life captured online to refer back to. Neat stuff. Cyber-nostalgia at it’s best.
There’s still a lot to do before January 1, 2014 – so I’m going to get back to it. For now, check out my 2013 Christmas photos featuring Karma the Dog wearing a new hoodie.
Here’s the rest of the photos: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tomcroom/sets/72157639075766026/
