I love New Year’s Day. I imagine it is because I always approach it with high expectations and resolutions.
This blog has become an important piece of who I am and what I do. I think through writing. When I am unable to express myself through writing, I find myself frustrated and disoriented. But when I get a chance to sit down and put my thoughts on paper, it helps me to settle. It helps me to make sense of the chaos in my mind. It helps me to breathe.
So tonight I’ve spent some time getting my blog ready for 2012. I’ve done some changing of page titles and added content on those pages. Also, if you will look at the sidebar and scroll down, you’ll see I’ve made some changes there as well. First, that obnoxiously long categories list is now in a drop down menu, allowing me more space for widgets and things that are important to me.
Secondly, I’ve added a feature called “I am reading”, which displays a picture of the book I am currently reading and what page I am on. THAT’s a nerdy thing to do!! If you click on the book, it will take you to that book on Amazon.
I’ve added a few other things on the sidebar that you can explore. I don’t know why my “Recent Tweets” feature is not working. I’m still working on it.
The last thing is that I’ve added a “See Related Posts” feature that will be at the end of each post. It will list previous posts that are related to the current post. Very cool.
I have much more to say about New Year’s, which I will be doing over the next couple of days. I welcome any and all feedback on this little slice of the blogosphere. 🙂
