Why no images?
Nov 6, 2020
As of this writing, this website has no images. The layout is also really plain. While I do enjoy text and appreciate the minimalism of some website I still find on the net (a perfect example: ), I’m looking to have a more modern and readable look. Layout will improve as I have time to build it over time. Images I’m particularly missing for my food writing. Happily, I see examples of what people have done and they look pretty straightforward.

Then it was raining. Then more snow. Then some ice began to fall. [Read More...]

The End of JumpstartMyHeart
Oct 23, 2020
