leave your inhibitions at the door
I’m thrilled to announce a couple changes to the blog – one I’ve wanted to do for a while, the other a relatively new development.
First the one I’m sure you’ve already noticed – the new layout. When I first started the blog, I wanted one that was clean, simple, minimalist. But it had some limitations – most obvious was the inability to have a header image or logo. With this new layout, I’m able to add a logo or image as often as I want as well as other features I’m thinking of for the future. I like this new look a lot and so did the focus group that reviewed it – Doobie and Fergie (my cats). I know, I know – the blue box with “FWH” is pretty damn lame, but at least it’s a start. If you have a graphic that you think would look pretty cool there, email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The more exciting news is that I’ve decided to make The Sicilian, a close friend of mine, an official contributor to this site. I’ve mentioned her quite a few times already in various posts and you may recall she wrote a guest post a few months ago on Gordon Lightfoot’s “Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald.” It was a pretty popular post that continues to get hits every week.
So why add her?
Well, because she’s been bugging me to let her post some more and I was hammered when I said yes. Because she’s a terrific writer! Unlike yours truly, she actually went to school for journalism and does it for a living. Her addition is going to bring some much-needed professionalism to this blog. And by professionalism I mean occasionally lifting this miserable blog out of the gutter of teenage boy, twisted humor that I drive it into. Don’t worry, I’m still going post some some sick, male-oriented content here, but now there’s going to be a feminine element to the blog to balance shit out. I know you’ll enjoy reading her posts.
