Yes, I have known for quite some time that my blog was tired and blah, but I have not been that interested in de-blah-ing it. (I'd like to see what my linguistics teacher would do with that!)
But, when someone who has a pretty nice-looking blog himself suggested it was time for an upgrade, and more importantly, offered to help make it pretty, I was totally happy to agree. And please, when you see the word "help" in the previous sentence, do interpret it as "figure out something for me so that all I had to do was continue being happy". I've looked through other blogger templates about a dozen times, but could never rip off the Band-Aid myself, so to speak; I couldn't part with navy & forest green without outside intervention. Enter Brandon, who does blog interventions with the greatest of ease.
I would illustrate this post with a picture of Brandon, but I don't have one, so instead, here's John Wayne's head chiseled in stone, which (as far as I know) is still on display in the LCU library. Brandon does not resemble a stony John Wayne in any way, although Brandon and John Wayne's head lived in the same city for a few years. If you'd like to see what Brandon actually looks like, click the link above & check out his blog.
And I hope everyone enjoys the new blog look as much as I do.
