I've gone Blog Wild


I can almost hear "Suueeee" being called through this post, lol. Those of you who have had the misfortune of visiting between Sunday morning and Wednesday...uh...emm...well, now know what I'm talking about. It started off with a simple PhotoShow link that I wanted to post to the blog. Then I needed to upload/update Drew's three month photo. That led to re-doing the blog header (the red scrapblog with his current photos). Then I decided to remove the old pictures and posted the new ones. One thing after another and here I am 3.5 days later and still wondering how much I should do. I'm definitely much happier with this layout since it seems a lot more streamlined. I even tweaked the fonts and colors to make it coordinate with the new header. And lastly, I disabled the right-click option. Some gals on BBC were talking about this new MySpace, Facebook type website that's popular in South America. One person had her children's personal photos taken and used on this website (how on earth she ever found out was amazing!) as their own personal photo. It weirded out a lot of people, so I decided to make it at least a little difficult for someone to lift the photos.

In any case, I'm having a lot of fun with the blogging and as a result have added some new features to the blog. Be sure to peruse a bit and see what's new. And if you are curious to know when the next "big" blog post is up, be sure to sign up for the e-mail alerts.

I have to say, I'm stunned at how quickly the hit counter has gotten to 1000+ already. It's only been "on the market" for just over a month. Thanks to everyone who has stopped by - feel free to drop a line in the guestbook and let me know what you think or if you have any suggestions.

In the meantime, I'll just keep bloggin'. I know I'm doing a decent job when Neil comes home from work and heads for the computer to see what's new.
