Super Fun 604th Mega Post

Warning; this post may not actually contain anything super, fun, or be of any kind of "mega" quantity. Remember, it's all about quality. Then again if I really thought that I probably wouldn't have managed to have 604 posts now would I?

For those of you who remember I mentioned last Saturday that it was my 600th post. Not one for celebrating things when they're actually due (I celebrated the 501st post, and other than the 100th post, that was the only posting milestone I celebrated it seems) I waited until I had a free day to get around to saying "yay, I got this far". 

Yay, I got this far.

I don't think too much has really changed in the last hundred posts and I think it's one of those things I don't see the point of really celebrating. When you consider I make a post every day it means I have to make one of these kinds of posts every few months. The splendor and grandeur quickly die and so there doesn't seem to be much point to it. I can acknowledge that, sure, it's pretty cool to have written 604 posts, and can possibly be considered more impressive given my schedule, but yep, not much time has passed. I think I'm better off sticking to just celebrating the yearly anniversaries and what not. Although I suppose I may have a quick play around with the settings and use this as a reason to switch up the design. I procrastinate my butt off sure, but when I find a reason to do something you can bet I'll actually do it. I won't walk in to town for the sake of walking to town, but I will go just to use the ATM machine. 

I make no sense.

Anyway, in traditional style for these kinds of posts, I would like to say thank you to everyone who has been here since the early days. Although I think only Fang has been here since the early, early, days, you're all pretty awesome people and I would be nothing without each and every one of you. 

In short...

You rock, woo hoo. 

Addendum: If you look around you might notice I HAVE in fact done a redesign. It was more than I was ever originally going to design and while it may not look perfect, I think it's about as good a job as I, with my limited skills, shall be able to do. My banner did not wish to be transparent. It r teh suxxorz. 

Please also note: Reconstruction is still ongoing, I went in to perfectionist mode and WILL get this right.

  1. I love the background Mark and I'm not afraid to admit that. I understand why you wouldn't celebrate your 600th post too much but you'd better celebrate your 100th which will be happening in less than 400 days, around the length of CM Punk's title reign so it'll be soon enough.

  7. Okay here's some points of attention for the redesign, if you don't mind me giving you some whine-y "advice". (I feel like a douche already)

    Let's start from the top, the header. The Fluttershy looks like it's lost its aspect raito (got squeeshed), and the header image could to with some transparency. Just remove the background, save it as a png, and you should be fine and dandy.
    The background. The white test is hard to read against the pink and blue of the butterflies. I suggest adding a semi-transparent black background to your content, using the CSS I proved on Twitter. This'll make everything much easier to read, regardless of the current scroll position, or how the background displays.
    That's... it already? Yeah, it is. Not much has changed besides that. Like the theme, the butterflies pop nicely, but the dark-yellow isn't that appealing to me. But hey, preferences.
    (Also Rainbow Dash's slogan on a Fluttershy-themed blog. You're doing it wrong, pal. ;D)

  10. Congrats on your milestone. Was I here in the early, early days? I can't remember.

    Also, I can't believe I recognize what your design is based off of.

  11. Congrats on the new design. I must admit I am still adjusting to it. But if you like it, I like it. You have probably done this before, but I would like a post about the first time you met Fang... or how you came about stumbling upon one another.

  13. Two things. First, way to go. Second, the redesign makes me think you are a schoolgirl caught in an englishman's body. Good on ya.
