A little swankier (and some house cleaning)

If you’ve been using a news reader of some sort (like Google Reader or… whatever else there is out there for RSS and Atom feeds) to read my blog, you might want to update it to the new feed address. I started using FeedReader at the beginning of the year, and really like the options I have and the stats I can get from it.

For you non-news-readers, perhaps you’ve noticed a few minor changes around here. I’ve updated the sidebar, cleaning it up a bit. (The only thing I wasn’t able to do was move that sitemeter image, despite my best efforts.) Archives instead of a calendar, removing the allconsuming stuff, etc. And, I’ve started a meme. As in, I created one. It’s called The Thankful Meme, and you can see a link to it over on the sidebar there –> right underneath “recipes.” Why don’t you join me?

I’m also going to try my best to work harder on cleaning up the archives some more, though that’s never fun. My goal is to get to the place where I wouldn’t have a heart attack and die if a family member said, “So I was reading on your blog….” Also, I’d like to put a link to it on my Facebook profile, but I can’t do that just yet. There’s a pretty big difference between a relatively anonymous private journal and a public personna attached to a blog. Plus, people from high school scare me.
