Frankly speaking

July 23rd, 2014 · Frankly speaking, opinion

This is a middle of the week Frankly post about what I’ve been doing behind the scenes at SPT. I’ve chosen a new theme to increase the size of the content/post area. That meant that I had to resort to a single column for all the sticker pics, readers’ rides, weekly babes, etc. I have an example of what I have achieved so far. It looks pretty much the same except for the header image and the single column. Here’s what I have so far:

I hope to get some different header graphics and do minor tweaks as the days go on.

One of the above statements is false.

Please bear with me. I haven’t decided when to go live yet. I’d appreciate your comments.

Sorry to interrupt your daily routine.

You are now free to move about the cabin.
