Check out the new Buttoned-Up Mind!

Say, doesn't this blog look different? Are your eyes deceiving you?

No, they are not, and yes, it does look different.

Welcome to the new format for Dave's Buttoned-Up Mind. It's much more visually dynamic, I think. I love the slide-show of featured posts (though I may have to try and get pictures that fit better). Those will change periodically as more prominent ones get featured. If you have any posts that you think would look good up there, feel free to let me know. I will be rotating the DS9 and Book reviews, of course.

There are some lovely social media icons up at the top of the page which will let you find me on Twitter and Google+, as well as a link to email me.

New to the blog is the "Popular Posts" sidebar, where you can see which posts have been clicked on the most over the last seven days.

I really like the look of this new template, and now that I understand the "featured posts" slider a lot better than I used to, it doesn't frighten me as much. I think it does add a bit of colour and touch to the whole thing.

Since this is a new template though, please let me know if it gives you problems at all regarding page loading. I want to make sure the blog is accessible to everybody. Speaking of which, I also think the posts are easier to read than they were before. Or maybe it's just my eyes.

Changing the template was almost totally painless, which made me a happy blogger.

Now if I could only jump for joy in that sunset, I would be a very happy blogger.


  1. We must be on the same wavelength. I was tinkering with my blog last night, considering changing its look. I ended up not doing it, though, because I'm dumb when it comes to blogger and couldn't find any templates I liked better. Congrats on the new look. Nice to see a new post from you!

  2. Thank you! I've been back for a week now. Have you checked out the other posts? :)

    I understand the trepidation of changing the look. If you don't want to try using custom templates that you can download, Blogger still has a number of different templates and other things you can do within the service itself. It's pretty easy.

    Of course, if you can't find anything you like, then that's a problem. :)
