More boring site news

In case you didn’t notice – and I’m sure you didn’t – I changed the theme for this site again. It was a subtle shift – this is actually the theme that the previous one was based on. But I made a startling revelation the other day: Spotlight (the previous theme) has no search box in it by default! How am I supposed to remember anything that’s gone on in my life over the past few years if I can’t search through my blog? 20 years from now I’ll probably be doing searches for “wedding day” so that I don’t forget my anniversary…

While I do enjoy this theme, I really do need to tear it apart and make it my bitch own. Yeah, like the typical cry of the blogger, I make statements like this on a regular basis. But I really am starting to feel that creative bug biting me, as if to say, “Hey, dumbass, put up a photo or two like you keep promising.” Yes, my creative bug is as much of a smart ass as me. Did you expect him to be all sweet and cuddly?

At the very least, I can take comfort in the fact that I have been posting somewhat regularly this year. A quick look at my archives made me realize that I managed to post more in January than I had since… well, I can’t remember what month it was, but it was certainly before I got stuck in this married to my wonderful wife… So as I rapidly approach my 4th blogiversary (remember, I don’t count the first post), let’s hope I manage to keep my ass in gear rather than just talking about it being stuck in park…

UPDATE: Oh wow, so THAT’S what widgets are! I was able to switch back to Spotlight thanks to the wonder that is the dynamic sidebar and widgets in WordPress. Take a gander at my new sidebar and you’ll see what I mean. Now I’m totally inspired… totally!
