I changed the website theme. It’s darker now and much easier on the eyes. I didn’t particularly like the last theme ever since I started using it. I only picked it because it was easy to manage with how minimal it was. I added a favicon to identify my site:
It’s nothing to brag about. I just thought I ought to have something there. The markdown is improved, especially the blockquotes. It didn’t seem like they were rendering on the previous theme, but now they do. Each post now has a word count and estimated reading time in the metadata section. Posts are paginated so they’re not all on one page like before. I’m allergic to client-side JS, so this site has none. I modified the theme to use CSS rather than JS for the interactive features. I’m happy with the way it turned out and I consider it a significant improvement. The new theme is everything I originally wanted for my blog, so it’s here to stay.
