A note about Vox Populi’s new look for our poetry

Dear Vox Populi subscribers:

Yay! I’m not a techie, so I’m excited that I stayed up all night learning how to use CSS code on Vox Populi in order to change the font of the preformatted poetry posts to Inherit, an attractive typeface, from Courier, which looks like an old manual typewriter font. I also changed the background from gray to white, brightening up the pages. I feel the way I did when I was six years old and rode my bicycle for the first time. Check out the poems at the link here and let me know what you think.

As always, I thank you for your patience and loyalty with VP’s DIY spirit — bringing you the best poetry, progressive politics, art, music and nature to your inbox each day.

Always yours,

Michael Simms, DIY founder/editor/tech support person/snack provider/dog walker

“Vox Populi is basically a personal blog that seems to have swallowed a small planet.” Doug Anderson

I didn’t actually use these tools to update the website, of course, I just think hand tools are cool.
Falling down is part of the process.
Ah, that’s more like it. This little guy is ready to go.

      unfortunately the snacks are for the dog, and she’s not a very good sharer.

    Looks great! I should be so diligent; I’m at WordPress’s mercy. We share several titles; dog-walker being the most illustrious. Leo

    Did you hear the one about the ailing poet? His mornings went from bed to verse.
