A few weeks ago, I quietly pushed out a new theme here. If my count is accurate, this is version 8.0. This theme is intentionally stripped down to a simple theme highlighting some of my brain’s meanderings as I move along in life. As I’ve now sub-titled it, I intend it to be “field notes from a pastor in Austin”.
It was a quick build, as I reworked my byJohnChandler.com theme into something for this site. I added a few unique post formats as well:
- Links: These are posts where I can easily link to something I find interesting enough to pass along here. The title is the link. You can see an example in the image above. They have a smaller title and are followed by a right hand arrow.
- Quotes: I added a streamlined post style for quotes that doesn’t show a title. In the feed, I usually just give these a title of a double quotation mark.
There are still a few potential tweaks I have in mind, but enough of it was in place to go live and announce it.
