### Micro.Blog (Patrick H. Mullins)

I spent a good portion of the day redesigning the overall look of this website. I got lazy with the previous version and went with a spartan, minimalistic look that was super easy to design, code, and maintain. This spartan look, unfortunately, ended up feeling rather antiseptic and boring in general. I decided to go for the total opposite of what I had done previously. Instead of a stark white theme with little to no text I instead went with a rich, dark theme and lots of descriptive text. I have to say that I'm pretty happy with the results so far.

My only real concern is that the CSS code that I ended up creating isn't fluid at all. This essentially means that the text and graphics will not wrap nicely on smaller, mobile screens. I now have to decide if rewriting some of the render code to enable a fluid layout is really a worthwhile investment of my time. My brain is telling me yes, it is worthwhile. However, I also know what it's going to take to make this happen and it's not something that can be done quickly or easily.
