Dinner Tonight Was So, So, So Right!

The Soup Diva

A New Look For The Tony Burgess Blog From A Familiar Theme #wordpress

An important part of blogging is how the reader responds. They can’t respond if the typeface is too small or there is too much going on the screen at one time. I have used 1, 2 and 3 column layouts in my blogging career but the two column seems to strike a good balance of information and content with some eye candy thrown in.

The Toujours theme offers a font size that is easy to read along with plenty of blank space it doesn’t seem so crowded. I have used this theme before but I am employing some new ways to display recent posts among other features to make the blog stand out.

I hope you will enjoy my blog even more with these aesthetic and functional changes. Your interest in me and this blog are appreciated.
