Welcome to the new and improved Mad Utopia. Things have been happening behind the scenes here and I hope you like the changes. I have changed hosts, which gives my tech guru Susan a little more freedom to work her magic, and changed themes, which gives the whole place a spiffy new look. I hope you like it. I still need to do a few things, such as redirect my old site here and update my Google Analytics to track this site rather than the old one. The two biggest improvements right off the bat are that Mad Utopia is now a three column site instead of just two, and the pull-down menus work as intended (they were a bit flaky under the old theme).
The theme I’m using is called Suffusion, by Sayontan Sinha, in case you were going to ask. It is incredibly flexible. Susan found it and set it all up for me. She told me she did not have to do any CSS programing – it was all laid out simply by using the configuration tools. I highly recommend it and thank Sayontan Sinha for making his “hobby” freely available to all.
Content-wise the biggest change is the additional column, where I will be able to hawk the Best of Friday Flash – Volume One, Chinese Whisperings – The Yin and Yang, 100 Stories for Queensland, and any other works I happen to appear in. I’ll also be glad to run some goodwill adverts for worthy projects for charity, so if you are interested please contact me.
I have additional changes in the works, but it is too soon to talk about it just yet. Watch this space for an announcement, hopefully within a week or two. So please, change all those bookmarks and unsubscribe the old site and subscribe to the new site. And thank you all for taking the time out of your busy days to read my musings from time to time. Your feedback is what keeps me going.
