On the surface, I feel like this is a small thing, but as someone who is publishing his academic research while it is being done, I think there are some real issues to go over here.
After monkeying with the look and the layout of the blog, I’m 99.9% sure that I’ve got this thing looking how I want it to. The name of the new template is South River 1.0. I may add things to the sidebars or to the menu above, but other than that, I’m going to force myself to make no more changes to the layout, as it has already consumed too much of my time. I just wanted to point out a couple of the major revisions that will be helpful for you when navigating this page.
Most of you probably haven’t noticed, since basically no one knows about this blog yet really, but I’ve changed the template. I was using the default one, but I’ve always been a fan of the three column format for blogs. While I hate the color scheme, the overall layout is closer to what I would like for this things. There’s also a good possibility that I’m going to change the template. Anyways, I’m still working out the kinks of the blogroll and the links section, as well as adding a bunch more widgets that will make finding things on this blog easier for me and for you. I have to say that so far, it seems that WordPress blows Blogger out of the water in terms of features and customizability. However, it is much easier to make changes to the layout in Blogger, as most of the stuff is done with a point and click interface. With WordPress it is a lot more code editing. Luckily, for someone like me, it isn’t that hard to figure out. However, it is a bit more time consuming.
Hello Blogosphere! My name is Bob Ngo. I am a PhD Candidate in the Department of Sociology at the University of California – Santa Barbara. Some of you may already know me from another blog that I maintain (and I use “maintain” in the loosest sense possible) on these here internets. Anyways, as you might guess by the title “PhD Candidate”, I am working on my dissertation on the Sabermetric movement in American Baseball, and I thought it might be a good idea to track the whole process with a blog. I’ve decided to use a blog for a number of reasons.
