A New Structure for the Blog

I am getting the hang of writing a daily blog, and I very much appreciate your feedback.

I have also been finding that the “faith and family for centrists” blog is very heavily about family, light on the faith stuff.

And, looking ahead to the end of my sabbatical and my return to full-time teaching, I need to make a small adjustment.

SO, The Gruntled Center will remain a daily blog. Saturdays, though, when readership is at its lightest, will be very light fare.

And, to be sure that I regularly treat religious matters, Sundays will be about religion.

Monday through Friday will remain what I hope are substantive and current blogs about family life.

To start us with some light fare for this Saturday, I give you a joke I heard from a standup once. (I would be happy to credit it if anyone knows who it came from):

My wife uses fabric softener. I never knew what that stuff was for. Then I noticed women were coming up to me (sniff) 'Married' (walk off) That's how they mark their territory. You can take off that ring, but it's hard to get that April fresh scent out of your clothes.

I first read your blog thanks to a Family Scholars link. I've been back a few times. I like what I've read, but I find it hard to read because of how it appears on my screen.

I see slate blue text on a finely-patterned brown background. I can only read the posts if I highlight the text. And the entries under "recent posts," "links," and "archives" are invisible until I highlight them.

Am I missing some button that lets me view your text in another fashion?

Peter:

My wife had a similar problem. The problem is a browser issue. She needed to upgrade from Safari 1.2 to 1.3. I actually post in Mozilla's Firefox, which is a free download. I also have Explorer 5.2, which works, too.
I hoped that solves your problem -- no doubt others are having the same difficulty.

Aha. That takes care of it. Thanks.
