I've tweaked the stylesheet for the blog a bit; the default Bootstrap styles for paragraph tags and the like were leaving a tad bit too much whitespace between my paragraphs.  There's still a bit too much, especially within list tags, but at this point, if it ain't too broke, don't worry too much about fixin' it, is what I say.


I also revamped the meta description in the "permalink" pages to "excerpt" the blog post by clipping the initial substring of it.  All the SEO pages I've seen tell me that you should use no more than 160 characters in this tag, as search engines discount anything beyond that length.  I set the length to 140; if it's good enough for Twitter, it's good enough for me. :-D Fortunately, I have quite a bit of experience editing Velocity templates; Aspen's ABC software used them for page formatting, for instance.  Mainly because I wrote that...


This should also mean I start seeing better post descriptions when I post links on Facebook.  I'll be checking that out soon.
