I just wanted to make a quick post to let y’all know that there will be some slight blog formatting changes coming very soon (they’ll probably be live in the next day or so). I approached the Boarding Area web design folks with a few requests:
- To put the “About,” “Ask Lucky,” “Need award help?”, and “Trip Report Index” links across the top of the blog by the header, instead of having them hidden in the sidebar. This is because I still get several emails a week from people asking me what my website is for my award consulting business, so obviously it’s a bit too hidden. The same goes for the other three pages.
- To add a link to my Twitter at the top right of the blog. Yes, I actually do use Twitter quite a bit, and realized I wasn’t doing an especially good job integrating it with my blog. Haven’t been too active lately, though when I have a tech question or am mileage running, I’m usually on Twitter. 😉
- To make the actual text area a bit wider.
Also, in the process, they’ll be changing the placement of ads just a bit. As I start to do my “thing” full time, trying to maximize ad revenue is obviously important, though I’m committed to not littering the blog with ads. So there will be just one minor change — the ad across the bottom of the blog will be removed and replaced with an ad below the first post.
Anyway, just a heads up so that it doesn’t come as a surprise. While it will take a bit of time getting used to, I think it’s better than the current format, which I haven’t changed at all in over three years now, since I started the blog.
