New Blog Template

I figured the old Chiz Chat template was getting a bit dark, dull, and dreary. So, I changed it to something a bit more cheerful. I figured black and grey isn't the best color scheme for, what I consider to be, a humor blog. If it hurts your eyes, then let me know, and I'll dial down the flair.

Otherwise, I hope you enjoy reading black text on a white background. I know it's a strange concept, but I hope you'll get used to it in due time.

There's really no other point to this post other than to draw attention to the fact that I put some effort into doing something other than actually making a legitimate post.

I'll have a new post on Friday, though. So, I've got that going for me.


Hope you all had a great holiday season!

  1. I'm looking forward to the new post Chiz. This new design is pretty great. It was quite a surprise but it grew on me quickly.

    1. That's good. Not sure if I'll keep it or not, but it's better than the dreary look of the old design.

  2. My mother was eaten by a talking dinosaur, so the new master head part offends me.

    1. Oof, those dinosaurs are smooth talkers, but I assure you, these talking dinosaurs are certified public speakers with clean records.

  3. Wait, this is a humour blog? But everything seemed so factual! Oh crap! That's why everyone I've been talking to lately thinks I'm an idiot! I've been telling them stuff thats humourous as if its hard hitting and serious! .... not that I've been plagiarizing your posts and pretending they're my own original thoughts... have a good day, like the new background!

    1. I read my posts like I'm reciting a headlining news report. Therefore, I can see how my attempts at humor can be construed as facts.

  4. I rather liked the dark, dull and dreary - probably because it matches my personality!

    Looking forward to your next offering.

    1. Ah, I've changed my template more times than I can remember. Maybe someday I'll revert to the dark, mysterious look.

  5. Love it!
    Though I suppose there's no point to this comment than to toss a compliment to your new design. But regardless, well done.

    1. Thanks, Pickleope!
      Though I suppose there's no point to this reply than to toss an appreciative response toward the kindly words of a pickle.

  6. I like the new layout. It's clean, it's simple, and it's easy on the eyes. Plus, who doesn't want to feel like they're reading the blog of a dinosaur?

    Oh, T-Rex - only you!

    1. Only problem is a T-Rex's hands can't reach the keyboard because they're so short. I bet there's never been a joke about that, right? Well, here we go. Why can't Mr. T-Rex run a blog? BECAUSE HIS ARMS ARE TOO SHORT TO REACH THE KEYBOARD!

  7. When I was growing up my grandma always told us that you can't go wrong with a talking dinosaur as your blog header.

    1. Well, then I'm glad I have someone to verify that my choice of banner was a good one.

  8. I haven't updated my blog template ever. Don't think I ever will.

    1. I've changed mine about 3 times, and I'll probably do it again. I'm neurotic.
