Relatively Boring Bloggy Updates

So I just revamped my blog layout a bit.  That black background was making me emo.  I always forget how long it takes to do a proper redesign.  I innocently sit down and think "Hmmm, I think I'll change the look of my blog today" and then two hours later I'm still staring at my computer screen yelling "C'mon Mr. Header, WHY WON'T YOU BE CENTERED?!"  Maybe I'm just stupid and it's not really that tedious for anyone else.  But anyway, my blog is now ready to take on the fall season.  And if you are reading this, it is your duty to tell me how the new layout looks.  You have to look at it too, so if you think the color sucks and the picture of me prancing around in a baret is tacky, please alert me immediately. 

I also just discovered that if you log into Blogger in Draft you can read all sorts of stats about who is reading your blog.  Apparently I've been getting hits from really random places like Latvia and Malaysia.  Go me. 

In other news, I've been meaning to get my musical advice column up and running again.  Sadly, I'm running a bit low on emails.  Anybody out there in the universe need some advice in the form of a song? 

Also, while I'm spewing random bits of information, it should be noted that the infamous Steve is trying to get his blog off the ground.  He doesn't update it very often but I bet he would if people besides me read it.  He's generally brilliant and his blog can be found here.  Go leave him some love.  

That's all I've got for now.  A more interesting post will come soon, I promise. 


  1. Love the beret!

    Also, I am addicted to stats. I get a lot of readers from Denmark and that weirds me out a bit. Am I famous in Denmark?

  2. Haha I think the picture of you in the beret is adorable and I love your expression :) And if I know anyone who needs advice, I will direct them to your musical advice column! Hope you have a great rest of the week!

  3. Hahaha. I said (almost) the exact same thing to my computer. "Good god, why won't you just GO. TO. THE. CENTER?"

    So now it's at the right side.

  4. Allison - Haha, maybe you have some sort of Danish cult following. I've gotten a few hits from Denmark too, but I don't think I'm as famous there as you are.

    Adria - I think I'm secretly 80 sometimes as well. It seriously took me way toooo loooong to do that redesign yesterday and then I ended up just sticking with a pretty simple layout. I don't know if I could come up with anything that's better than what you already have haha. However, I can and will totally write you a song. :D

    Nikolett - Thanks :)

    Fickle Cattle - I feel your pain. I finally just reverted to a really old template that automatically centers the header. I don't know why the new ones don't do that.

  5. follow me at

  6. We should do a blog tour of Denmark!

  7. I feel at home on your blog already. Maybe I should change mine too - the grey background might be causing misery and angst in anyone who comes across it. I've never thought of this before.

  8. I can't even figure out how to make my background into a picture that I actually like, for example one of my computer, so for now my background is BORING.


It makes my day when YOU leave me comments. :D
