If I were a better planner, I would have coordinated this to line up with TNS’s 4th anniversary. Oopsie. Well, better late than never, right? It’s time for a facelift!

So: I wanted clean, with lots of white space. I wanted a change. I wanted to lose the ads and reclaim TNS as a purely personal space that really focuses on the posts. No frou-frou headers, busy sidebars or other cutesy crap. I think this look accomplishes all of that.

I would be remiss if I did not give profuse thanks to my Master WordPress Tinkerer, who puts up with my constant requests for tiny and sometimes contradictory edits to the site with only good humor. She’s quick and responsive, willing to give anything a whirl, full of good ideas and great at what she does. Thanks, Kai!

Please note: when you browse the archives or categories, there are no thumbnail images in the post snippets. I am aware and working on it, but I was too impatient to wait for total perfection.

Take a minute to reorient yourself, and then let loose on me in the comments. I might not pay attention to you, but it’s good for you to vent your spleen.
