Long vacation, new look

After spending the past few weeks visiting friends and family in Chicago, Decatur, and Denver, I’m now back in Saint Paul. The skies are gray, there’s snow on the ground, and the temperature is in the single digits: perfect weather for hibernating in my apartment and writing lots of new blog posts. While on vacation, I avoided the web almost completely, but now I’m full of energy and ideas, and I plan to get back to blogging regularly in the near future.

Those of you who read this site regularly may have noticed a significant change to its appearance. While in Chicago, I sat down with my friend Christopher Taylor Timberlake, a jeweler and photographer, in order to integrate some of his photos into a new design for Good Readings. Chris took the photo that now graces the site’s header in Chicago’s Humboldt Park last summer. He also took photos for use in a variety of other places on the site, including some new photo icons that will accompany future posts on books, music, etc.

I’d be happy to hear comments on the new template, layout, photos, or any other aspect of the site’s appearance. The goal was to give Good Readings a cleaner, less cluttered look while also finding ways to integrate more photographs and images into the site.
