What This Blog is About

I can't see where, if possible, to describe what this blog's emphasis is, so I will use this first post to do it here. Anyhow, this blog will be my "thinking sandbox" for Hugo design, where Hugo is the interactive fiction system created by Kent Tessman (

I recently found out that Hugo got its name from an early script by Kent entitled "Dead Hugo" (he's also a filmmaker- check out his screenwriting program: ). I thought it'd be funny to choose a name that points out that Hugo, the language, is not dead, but the phrasing is just odd enough that it could be interpreted several ways.

Anyhow, other Hugo enthusiasts are highly encouraged to weigh in on any of my speculations. Let's see how this thing goes.


  1. In the Layout tab in your Blogger dashboard, there should be a Header section or "gadget." Clicking the "Edit" link on the far right side of the rectangle brings up a window where you can change the main heading and also include a "Blog description" that will be displayed beneath the heading.

    Also, if you click "Add a gadget" in the Layout tab and then scroll down, there's a Text add-on that should let you put a block of text as part of the static blog layout. At least, I think that's how it's supposed to work; I haven't tried it.

  2. Thanks for the info! Good to know that stuff is there.
