A Few Changes ’round These Parts

It’s been a busy couple of days! We’ve changed hosts resulting in a boost in site responsiveness, monetary savings, and a huge boost in available space and bandwidth. I’ve also happily brought back the Beckman Ministries index page which has been AWOL since October or November of last year.

The header here has gotten a facelift thanks to several pieces of artwork. After giving up on finding any free-to-use imagery that looked nice, I dove into the world of classical art and didn’t look back. There are several pieces in use for the header; refresh the page a few times to see ’em if you like art enough to care!

The “sponsored links” which were underneath the first post of every page have been moved to the sidebar to improve the flow between posts as well as between posts and their comments.

A while back I posted about how I couldn’t get the theme here to play nicely. That was taken care of by reinstalling all the theme files. When in doubt… Wipe the slate clean and start again!

And it’s spring (well, the calendar says it is… weather-wise, it’ll be spring whenever God wants it to be!), which means for many people “spring cleaning.” The perfect time to spend countless hours tinkering around on my sites under the guise of optimization! Mwahahaha. Or, more likely, I should probably go through my books and pick some out to get rid of — there are plenty that I simply have no use for… books that I have here simply because I got them for mere pennies from library book sales where you can pick up books not individually but by the grocery bag full! I already have a small stack in front of me which I’ll be taking into work for our break room.

I’m also addicted to Facebook, or at least the joy that comes with reconnecting with someone I haven’t spoken to in over five years!
