First, a must-read pep talk for writers, especially ones still forming their writing rhythm/habits: “The Deceptive Art of Balance.”
It’s just been one of those days…at the end of one of those weeks…at the end of one of those seasons. For months now, I’ve been saying, “When I finish _____, then I’ll have a little down time.” The weeks come in, the weeks go out, and that down time has been absent. I suspect, at this point, that it’s not coming.
Which means I have to make peace with life as it is.
Second, it sure looks different around here, huh? Okay, maybe not for those of you browsing via RSS, but maybe you should come check it out. In switching from Google ads to BlogHer ads, I needed to make a significant layout change, so I decided to let life be simple (ish) and customize a ready-made template instead of coding a new design myself. Ta da!
(After nearly 24 hours of “tweaking,” I’m questioning the “simple (ish)” ness of my decision…)
Nonetheless, I cleaned up the navigation, moved the blog back to the front page, and enabled threaded comments (meaning you can reply directly to a particular comment). I THINK this is going to be more practical for the time being — it requires less behind-the-scenes work on my part — at least until I score a mega-bucks book deal and have to redesign the site to accommodate that. :P
Andy has already voiced his preference for the old look… What do you guys think?
(Note: I can take disagreement, but not meanness. There’s no need to bring my momma into this, okay?)
YAY or NAY?
