Blog Update: Minor Housekeeping in the Template

In case you were wondering whether something looks different, you are right! I did some minor blog template housekeeping. Some things got removed from the Siderbar and the Footer (the expanded RSS feeds at the bottom of the blog). I also re-prioritized the widgets in the Sidebar.

I also reduced the number of posts per page from 50 to 30. I had previously increased this to 50 during one of the previous holiday shopping seasons and forgot to change it 🙂

With these adjustments, the blog should theoretically load faster, or at least, less slow 🙂
