Like any good blogger, I occasionally check my blog’s statistics and when I see a viewing spike or a lot of interest in a post I’ll poke around to see what’s going on. This week I saw just such a spike.
It turns out that my li’l ol’ blog was part of two people’s homework for a class — assessing different blogs, talking about content, etc.
First of all: HI!! Welcome!!
Second (and far more important) was the critique of the blog. What I read was (I’m paraphrasing) “old, tired layout” and “UGH! ads!”. To which I say, fair. I haven’t updated the look of this blog since it started, and I was using the free WP version. So today, in lieu of anything better to do (ok, I did have better things to do but this is important and it stopped me from snacking as I gobbled up the soon-to-be-published Garth Nix)… TA DA!!
New look, no ads.
And dontcha love the fountain pen and cuppa tea in the photo? Because I’m all about both, right? If you need suggestions for where to purchase either, or ink, just let me know.
Ok. Back to my books and my munching… blogging to resume shortly.
