But it all just looks the same

Howdy folks!

Welcome to the new version of Shi--er, Strange Crust. It should look and feel a bit more "bloggy" now, as opposed to just a static list of articles. (If you really miss the old "just a list of things" format, I got you covered.)

This new bloggier version of the site still contains the things I like most, long form essays about stupid things, like running, or coffee. But it's now got that popular-in-2012 ever scrolling blog roll thing as the main body of the website. So now everything, whether it's a low-effort blog update or an article that I spent 15 hours creating, everything just comes at you one after another. The navbar now works to isolate certain types of posts (fiction, blog, etc) based on which one you click. I think it's fairly self-explanatory.

Although everything has gotten a layer of uniformity now, rest assured dear reader, everything on this site was and still has been hand-coded by myself (with the only exception being the random quote generator thing at the top of the page, that was coded by a friend of mine because I'm literally dumb as a brick.)

And because this was all done by me, there's a very good chance that some things are broken, or the site takes too long to load, or it looks ugly. All fair points. If you run into anything like this, shoot me an email and let me know where I dun goofed up. I'll do my best to fix it.

Okay I think that's enough for this little re-re-welcome to the website post. I'm glad you're here, let's make some weird stuff.
