New Look, Same Blog

Hi everyone.  You’ve probably noticed a little different look to the blog this week.  I’m fiddling around with the format, hoping to create a better reading experience, especially for those of you reading this on your phones.  I’m not done messing around yet, but am at the point where some feedback would be helpful.

 This is just a random damselfly nymph photo from this past summer to give you something interesting to look at.  (I think it was likely coming out of the water to transform to its adult body – which is pretty cool!)

If you have a few minutes, I’d sure appreciate it if you could look back over the last several posts and then answer some quick questions about how those look and feel to you.  I’ll do my best to create a format that works for as many people as possible.  Even if you just answer the first question (about which device you use) that would be tremendously helpful.

Please answer the questions that apply to you and the device(s) you use.  If you want to provide more specific feedback, please leave a comment on this post (if you can figure out how to do that in this new format!) If you read this via email, you might have to click the post title to open it in a browser before you can comment.

Thank you very much for the help on this.  I appreciate your feedback and your patience as I muddle through this process.

    I love your posts and read them regularly. I can understand the impetus to have ads in your posts, but I have to say that I really don’t like them. If you’re going to go that direction, though, at least try to have ads for products or services that relevant to your topic, not the same old click bait.

      Fred, I’m with you. I don’t like the ads either, but they are created and posted by WordPress, the company that hosts my blog. I have no control over them.

        …but I’m also looking into more expensive plans that would remove the ads – but would cost me money instead.
