Changes... some major, some minor...

Change is in the air. The weather's getting cooler, and the new school year's just begun. This is ever so painfully clear to a woman who's a mom to a boy who's now in school full time and a girl who's just started nursery school and a wife to a college instructor with a completely new schedule and whole new crop of students.

My own personal change has taken the form of tweaks to my blog. Please check them out, and let me know what you think of them...

1: New Tagline:
I've decided to emphasize the quirk factor by adding "Because My Life is as Sweet as Me". Ah, but how sweet am I really? Read my blog and wonder.

2: New Button for even more LinkLove:
With a new tagline comes a new button to share. If you have a blog and would like to link to me, please feel free to use this button, and let me know, so I can link to you too, if I don't already!

3: My About Page:
I've changed some of the details on my About page to give new readers a better idea of what this blog's all about. I'm getting more and more new readers everyday (hi to my new subscribers!), and I'm hoping this will bring in more.

4: New Books Page:
I decided to replace the Shop link to my Amazon store with a simple page of my favourite books by I know many of you have Amazon stores, aka astores, so you know how time-consuming it is to add items to it. LibraryThing is just faster.
Plus it allows my readers to browse other recommended books directly from the Amazon site.

5: Recent Comments Block:
If you leave a comment to a post, you'll see it on the sidebar.

6: Removed:
- Recent Posts
- Donation Block
- Daily Healthy To-Dos

7: Changed my Subscription/Profile Block:
The Twitter script always delayed the loading of my blog, so I decided to remove it altogether. I replaced it with a little welcome note and other ways to follow/friend me.

I'm also thinking of changing the Commenting format from Blogger to Haloscan. I'll be polling all of my readers to find out what will help you all to comment more.

Okay, that's it for now. Well, what do you think?!


  1. I'm working on some changes also. I think I will probably end up getting rid of my Amazon store as well. It doesn't seem to do much but just sit there. Love the new button - cute!

  2. @Kari -
    Thanks! :) I really like, and if you haven't already, you should give it a shot.
