Yesterday I was fiddling with colours, toying with stylesheets and thinking to myself how much easier it is to refurbish a blog than to, say, paint my kitchen. Then I started counting the hours I’ve spent learning MoveableType, adapting templates, rebuilding stylesheets, dabbling with colours. It adds up to at least the 3-4 hours a day for five days it took me to paint the kitchen. At least I don’t have to put up with the smell of drying paint. And I can use the kitchen.

Amazingly the blog refurbishing (still, incidentally, transitional) has coincided with a burst of writing on my thesis. Which I’ve promised myself will be absolutely utterly done by the end of April. Yup.

  1. And, of course, once you’ve painted your kitchen, living room or whatever, you don’t have to think about it again for a good long while. (I’m selling and buying an apartment right now, and thought your interior decorating metaphor was very appropriate.)

    Nice layout, though I do miss the “Let’s blog it!” icon. 😉 BTW: the fonts on the page don’t look very nice on Linux machines without Truetype fonts – you might want to tweak the CSS template a bit to accomodate these users as well.

  2. Thanks, Eirik – I need to do more cross-browser checking…

    And I know, the let’s blog it icon’s good. Perhaps I can fit it in again…
