A Couple of Days Off for Christmas

Aside

It’s basically Christmas! Which means that Kevin will be busy busy busy hanging out with his rather large extended family 😀 As such, I probably won’t be posting anything much over the next few days. (Unless I get insomnia. Which has been known to happen. Especially on Christmas Eve! ;)). I’ve put up a couple of long posts – one Some Thoughts article, and one long fantasy short story – so you can read those if you have a few spare moments over the next few days and need a “Kevin fix”.

(I hear it’s a quickly developing medical condition.)

Anyway, that’s me (probably) done for Christmas. Though I do have one post timed to come up tomorrow at 10. It’s my first scheduled post on WordPress.com. /tear. It’s short and sweet… Like the lifespan of a typical selection box in my house 😛 I thought it would be appropriate.

OK that’s enough talking! Happy Christmas! – Kevin out!

Backgrounds

Aside

Today I discovered that you can change the background of your WordPress blog. I’d seen the heading before in the appearance menu – in fact, I’m fairly sure I even went into it! – but it just never seemed to register with me what that meant. While browsing other blogs today I stumbled across someone who was using the same theme as me, and that person was using a really nice textured background. My blog looked dull in comparison. Ever the perfectionist, I have now embarked upon a quest to find a suitable and stylish background for my blog!

My experiments thus far have pointed me in a “wood” direction. I’m still not 100% happy with the options I’ve tried so far, so I will probably be spending the rest of the night switching in different ones on trial runs 😛 Matching the background with the header photo is proving almost impossible! (I think I will change the header). At the very least though they add an extra splash of color and texture to the blog, and that has to be a good thing! Let me know if you have suggestions. Be creative so I don’t have to 😉 My internet is running really slowly today so it’s taking forever to load the damn Google images… It will be worth it though. It will be worth it.

Kevin out!
