Back to blogging basics

The other day, when I posted that venn diagram review of Moneyball, it generated lots of traffic, but it also generated an email from someone asking if I knew my blog have been hacked and tons of spam links were swarming all over it. Needless to say, I was not aware of that. And so, with a little help from some friends and a couple of the explosive experts at Hammock Labs, long-needed maintenance and moving took place.

As a temporary measure, I activated this theme, one of the default WordPress themes called Twenty Ten. With some CSS shots in the dark, I got it scaled back to what I wanted, while my real theme was being sanitized.

However, several people (estimate: between 2 and 4), said it was more readable than the previous them and, hey, I’m all about readability.

So, unless the 7 people (better known as “the majority of this blog’s readership”) don’t tell me differently, I’m going to use this theme as a foundation to do some things that I hope will get this blog ready for some new plans I’ve been kicking around.

    It’s a nice format. Good basis for something more personalised.

    About the theme… the type is nice but the line length is pretty long.  Would also wish for your logo.  But still easier to read than the previous format.  

  • Thanks for letting me know. Before calling in someone from Hammock Labs who can clean up the mess I’m sure to make, I’ve been practicing the black arts of self-hackery. I think I’ve corrected the width issue (that I created last night).

  • As long as you keep the lard can. 

  • I’ve even made a higher resolution version of it and added a 100% guarantee or you money back.
