New Theme

Hey, all! Welcome to the redesigned Liberty Zone! After considering comments both here and on Facebook, I decided to make this blog’s color scheme a bit easier to read and comments a bit easier to follow. I’m hoping this addresses both issues and helps folks with vision issues enjoy the site a bit more.

I may play with graphics and some other stuff in the near future, but I think this design is a good one.

  1. As a general proponent of “Less is more,” it looks fine to me, Nicki. And it’s not like it was one of those blog horrors that use red text on a black background, or something like that, to begin with.

    Oh, and did you mean to say “Hey, y’all”?🙂

    1. LOL! I may live in Virginia, but as my husband will point out, I’m a yankee.😉

      1. One of them ex-Russo Yankees. (Which is better, because you appreciate what you have here, in ways that many “snowflakes” don’t.)

        Glad you’re here. Glad you’re blogging. Glad you’re not holding back. And thanks for the changes!

        On a side note, I’ve seen southerners who spell it ya’ll. I’ve seen Southerners who insist on using y’all in the singular. who then say “y’all alls” (or something like that) for the plural. WTF?

        (In a story I tried to write a few years back, I just went with “you-all” for aliens, whose language has a second person plural, trying to deal with standard English. Didn’t want to not show that, but also didn’t want them sounding like southerners to readers. I guess I could have gone with thou vs. you to be “technically” correct but then they’d have sounded Amish or something.)

      2. Been a Damned Yankee since 1984, but some time in the next month or so I will hopefully again become a Yooper, or a worst case, Cheese Eater Wisconsinite.

        Site looks real good. I like it.

  2. Yep, definitely a fan. It’s much easier to reply and follow replies with this format.

  4. This is easier to read and follow the comments. I mostly am a lurker, but I do cherish your refreshing use of idiom.

    1. It’s “colorful metaphor” (see Star Trek IV).

    2. Goodness! If a redesign gets you to say hi every once in a while, I should do one more often.🙂 Thank you!

  5. “…refreshing use of idiom.” Uh-huh. 🙂

    For some reason Nicki reminds me of a t-shirt a friend of mine has: I’m A Lady With The Vocabulary Of A Well Educated Sailor

  7. I like it. Glad you didn’t go with a cheetos color and don’t have a small, fluffy mammal as the header image. Oh, and no stubby posts.
