With the start of our favorite season - Fall - I thought it would be time to give our blog a well deserved face lift. Matthew has provided a new banner (that won't load... so hopefully it will come later) and continues to amaze me with his designing talents. A link to his business website is now on the new left side bar- so if anyone is looking for any sort of artistic design, logo, illustration, or just something downright amazing for your blog, home, or business life, HE is your man. And I am going to try to show my faithful readers (the few that actually tune in) some of the creative things that I am attempting to do with my life... and I say attempting because I sometimes chicken out when it comes to being creative. And also... if you would like to be on my link list of "fellow bloggers" please let me know. With a change in template I erased all my widgets, and despite my noble attempts to back them up before I actually changed anything, it didn't work and I lost them. So let me know.. otherwise, I won't go to your blog. So there's that.
One other thought I had while changing the blog was to add a counter. I see them on other blogs and some are thousands high (or more) and counting ... and I think to myself... "wow, they must be popular." So I added one 4 days ago and thought I'd try it out. It didn't work. Why, you ask? Because I am SO self absorbed blog-wise that I had like 10+ hits in one day from myself. So I took the widget off, because I would just be lying on my numbers. And that's lame.
