Whew. That was way less painful than last time.
What do you think of the new look?
Yes, I added ads. I know. Shameful. But this is not my first foray into commercialism on my blog. I had Google ads for a while, but I hated them for two reasons. They were ugly. And more importantly, I didn’t like their smart content detection system. Like when I wrote about skin cancer prevention, and “miracle skin cancer cure” ads started popping up. But the final straw was when I wrote about how vile Ann Coulter is, and Ann Coulter ads were then placed on my blog. Jesus, Joseph and Mary, I was NOT a happy camper that day. Not to say that Blogher will be a marriage made in heaven – I am sure there will be ads I don’t like – but I have more control over it. And hell, the joint is run by chicks.
And I added more blog clutter (as Izzy calls it). I am trying to decide if I am OK with it. I need to live with it a bit and see. But your feedback is appreciated. (And oh, I know the footer is jacked. I can’t figure it out right now and my brain is fried).
You may have noticed the Blogger’s Choice badges are back. Yup, that time of year again. And please, could you do me a favor and go vote for me in the best Blog Design category? Not that I think *I’m* all that and a bag of chips – but with the exception of a few of the leaders, that category is really SAD, in my opinion. (PPSSSSTT! Choosing a fun Word Press template – or even adding your own fun banner to a Blogger template – should not make one a finalist in the “Best Blog Design” category.) So, here they are. Have at it. Not that I think I would even come close to winning any of these, but I certainly appreciate being nominated. Thanks to Doodaddy, Oh The Joys and my friend James, respectively.
Oh, and one more thing. We leave for Hawaii on Wednesday. Let me repeat that cause it sounds so awesome.
We leave for Hawaii on Wednesday. We are spending Christmas in Maui. Here. With our best friends. And sand. And whales. And mai tais.
I plan to blog if possible. Or maybe not. But only if I feel like it. One of my mantras for this blog is to blog every day unless I am incredibly sick or out of the country. And while Hawaii isn’t out of the country – something that takes that many hours and that many times zones to get to counts.
But oh, but did I mention we also have a direct flight?
