Tweaking ‘Round the Chuckbox

You'll see changes to 'Round the Chuckbox over the coming weeks. As I learn to operate blocker software, I'll occasionally make minor adjustments to the look and feel of the blog. (For the record, I've already switched to a more appealing template -- my next project is to re-write the repulsive profile that's posted under my mug.)

Please bear with me. This blog is a work in progress. Much like a young culinary student who's searching for his cooking style, 'Round the Chuckbox will grow as the months pass. I'll do my best to cook up blogs in an environment where the ingredients meld into a form that's appealing to the eyes, doesn't offend the senses and enhances effortless navigation.

The beauty of a blog is you're not bound by the linear restrictions of paper. Nor do you have to publish your thoughts in chronological order.

Take the chili recipe: As days pass, the picture might bring to mind the 750 words that I missed with the first post. I'll able to post these thoughts in 100-150 word portions for easy digestion. Shorter articles make for easier reading. As I blog -- and you read and comment -- all 1,000 words will ultimately emerge on 'Round the Chuckbox -- in one form or another.

Enjoy ...

  1. Steve,
    Blogs are the wave of the present...I did one for the old IDOS page, but I guess I won't see that.

    Congrats, this will be fun...
