You may notice that this blog suddenly looks different, and this post is to explain why and to clarify a few things to anyone who may be confused. The original green "Wizard of Oz" theme was something I came up with in the days after Ozzie's birth. I slapped it together, called myself "The Wizard," and got to work. But I never really liked the design, and I don't particularly like wizards, and it always kind of bugged me.
As I was building Down Town, I planned on ditching this blog altogether and just moving everything over to that site. But it became a huge hassle to do that. I tried - I copied the content over to the new site, and I called it "Life with Ozzie," (a name that's a bit more straightforward than Down With Oz). But I ended up with a really crummy version of a blog. I'm finally just admitting that it makes more sense to manage my blog through blogger.com.
This evening I redesigned Down With Oz to bring it more in line with the design of Down Town, and I changed my stupid "Wizard" moniker to something that actually makes sense: downtowndan. That name may be stupid too, but I think it has sort of a cool blacksploitation vibe, which you must admit is better than a magical-wizard-nerd vibe. I also added a blogroll and a followers link and set up email notification for comments, etc. In other words, I finally got serious about this blog. Hope you like it.
Oh, one more thing. Anyone can now comment on this blog - you don't have to log in or be a member of blogger or anything. That's a gift for my internet-challenged family.
