...Spring Cleaning for Gingerology...

...hi, y'all! Well, Gingerology was a bit overdue for a 're-branding', albeit not TOO drastic... so a few features have been either dropped or 'trimmed', and other features have (or will soon be) added... including:

---THE 're-styling' of the site... the biggest changes are the font type and the 'post background' color changing to black...and subsequent 'lightening' of the text, which hopefully makes for a stark contrast for reading... I also 'shrunk' the text a bit, in order to...well, 'shrink' the post sizes and 'feature' sizes. Please give us your feedback on whether or not the new scheme works for ya... thanks!

---THE elimination of the GingerTunes and Ginger reads her bio... the links to the tunes and readings have been lost for quite awhile now... hopefully we can figure out a better way to add audio files to the blog... it's just too flippin' hard now... especially compared to videos... I just need to figure out how to transfer stuff into YouTube Videos and post them...

---THE 'streamlining' of the 'Gingery Blogs' section... Still all the links to all the awesome blogs, but the 'preview' thumbnails of the posts have been removed, again for space's sake.

---THE addition of more links - to YouTube channels, Gingery sites, etc. - this one is still 'under construction', so...be patient... actually, again, any sites you can think of that would be a nice relevant link to G-ology would be appreciated!

...and that's really about it... hopefully not too radical... the only other 'almost' was the potential change of the 'header pic', but...Golden Girl Ginger is just too hard to remove...she's a lifer, y'all!

Well, hope everyone's having a great weekend...I have started the Star of Midnight review post, so... progress!

KIG, y'all!!!



  1. What a surprise! The green on black is nice but the yellow on white hurts my eyes and is hard to read for me. Of course, as I age all fonts seems to be getting smaller and smaller ;)

    If you have some time, check out You Tube for Ginger testifying before Congress about the colorization of classic films. The picture and sound keep coming and going but most of it is there. Ginger tells it like it is!


  2. ...thanks for the input, 'e'! I wish I could have more 'control' over the elements... for whatever reason, the right side of the 'background' is pretty much set, so the dark side - light side is at best a challenge to use a 'common font' color to show up on both extremes... but then again, the two sides may BE able to be changed...I'll look at it a bit more...but I agree the text color needs some tweaking...

    ...oh, and thanks for the link! I am going to try to make a 'bank' of links to YT vids...or better yet, just download them and then stick them on here...

    KIG, 'e'!!1


    1. I'm frustrated with blogger for the same reasons you mentioned. Some pages I've done the fonts kept changing and I couldn't get them to do what I wanted. The program is limited.

      The list of YT vids sounds AWESOME! You'll have to see to that in your "spare time" ;)


    2. ...I tried to 'darken up' the 'gold text' on the right-hand side...hopefully is a little better... there's definitely some more tweaking to do!

  3. That youtube of Ginger testifying about colorization of film was awesome, thanks for sharing it erosenplatt!

    1. Sure! Just want to keep all those Gingerologists out there informed.

      The darker gold is much better. It is much kinder to the eyes.

      KIG, ya'll!


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!

Thanks again, JW
