Just a quick post here! I gave the blog a quick makeover, which I like (I wanted the background to be the picture to the left that I'd taken, but all my pictures were too big to upload-- I have NO idea how to change that!) I found a picture on the net, and I love it, and I hope that's okay!
Anyway-- the blog isn't the only thing that's different!
If you look to the top, you'll see a link to "Look What Mate Made Me!"-- seems I have a new website!
I wasn't expecting it-- he'd been looking for a long time to find a template that I could update myself, and then he spent DAYS playing around and putting all of the stuff I had on the OLD website onto the NEW one. When THAT was done, he asked me what features I wanted, and we decided to put a "book only" blog there--so, writing business will be blogged on the website and linked to the top of my knitting blog. It may mean a few less posts on THIS blog, but it will also mean that the folks who tune in for my pleasant family natter won't be bored to tears with book stuff, and that the people who just want to read the books won't have to deal with my family natter. (And for those of you who crossover? I LOVE YOU ALL!!!)
Anyway-- the other feature is a calendar of events. I'll add links a little later (after Mate and I have a sit-down link tutorial, because my last attempt is disastrous, even for the easy interface!) But in the meantime, you can take a look at the calendar for new releases, public appearances, etc.
And did I mention I think it's pretty? He picked the background--a provided template--but then, given my (aherm) dubious sense of style, I think that was probably best.
So everybody raise your glass to Mate, because he's seven quarts of awesomesauce for epicicecream, and because he's my Mate, and nobody else can have him. Ever.
And lets all hear it for the grand reopening of Green's Hill!
