Swell Thing and New Blog colors

Awesome, I just kind of, sort of made a few minor changes to my blog.  Mostly I changed a few of the sidebar things (took out the redundancy), and changed the colors of the backgrounds and text so it suits me a little more.  It is not perfect yet, I still do not like the colors quite, and now my links are all broken.  I do not know how changing the colors broke all the links, but it did, swell.

So for the next few days I am going through every single blog post and changing the links so that they all work properly again.  I may toy with the colors some more to get it closer to my desired design, but for the most part I am done there.

I do not foresee the link fixing as being all that enjoyable, or for that matter useful, but there is this thing about me, that I want the links to work, even if they will never be used by anyone.

One bonus to this is that now I can go through all my post and insert Amazon affiliate links where appropriate, so maybe that will at least help me some.  Ah, who am I kidding, I have had Amazon affiliate links in my post for years and I have earned nothing from them.  Still it is worth a try.  I will only be using text links though now, so there will not be any graphic links, unless it is necessary to the post.

I know, no one cares, and this is more a post for my own edification, but there it is.

Peace
JD
