Now darlings, we realize this new layout may be something of a shock to you, but it's all part of a larger plan. Trust your daddies.
See, without us actually planning it, we found ourselves producing more and more content each month and we've never been happy with how that content was laid out. Too confusing to readers, what with all the "Page 2" and "Don't miss!" stuff over on the sidebar. We wanted a way for any reader, whether a newbie or an old vet, to find an interesting topic to click on the second our page loads, whether it's Kenley's latest brush with the law, or red carpet bitchery, or reality television rippery.
This is also of a piece with our longer-term plan, which is to do away with our companion blog, "Tom and Lorenzo," and just feature all our musings in one central location. It's not coming yet, but before you know it, there'll be Lost and Mad Men posts right next to Project Runway and Fashion Show posts. BUT, the beauty of this layout is that you won't have to scroll all the way down or click through to find a topic that interests you. It's all right there, laid out in as clear a manner as we could find. PLUS, as an extra added bonus, once we get everything sorted out and have both blogs merged, we'll even bring back the long-lamented Musical Mondays posts for you.
Now, we won't lie; there ARE some bugs with this layout and we're working on them. The pictures on the front page are all going to look a little distorted until we go through the posts and reformat them, and you have to scroll all the way to the bottom of each post to find the "Post a comment" link. We're scrambling to get both those issues fixed. Also, our archives and labels and blogroll are all on the bottom of the page, if you need to find them (or they will be soon). Still a work in progress, kittens. Hopefully, it'll all be sorted out by tomorrow morning.
If you hate it, say you hate it. That's fine. We'll ignore you, but that's fine.
No, seriously. Feedback is good. Let us know what you think.
