05 Aug The Cat’s Out of the Bag and Into My Light Box
I can’t keep a secret to save my soul. It’s not that I intentionally blab news for the adrenaline rush of gossip. I just don’t have the filter to keep a lid on certain information. One Christmas, with just a single present left by the tree, my sister wasn’t moving as fast as I’d have liked. So, to encourage her, I pointed to the tall, thin mystery gift leaning against the wall and said, “Come on Allison! Open your easel.”
The scary part is I didn’t even realize my gaff until she reacted. Allison, on the other hand, picked up on the content of her gift right away. And boy, was she miffed at me.
To avoid annoying anyone, I’m telling you here and now that I’m moving my blog come September. I won’t tell you where it’s moving, but rest assured it’ll have a proper URL (no .blogspot in the name), a cleaner look and some easier navigation features. Based on feedback from readers, I’m keeping the name Christie’s Corner, the tagline and the burnt toast motif. This much I can tell you.
From previous polls and comments, I have an idea of what sort of content you like, but I don’t really know what features you find useful or irritating on a blog. This is your chance to voice your opinion(s). Love “Recent Comments”? Speak up! How do you feel about Twitter feeds? What do other blogs have that I desperately need to install? What sends you fleeing from a site?
I can’t promise I’ll be able to provide everything you ask for, but your comments will help me narrow things down from the billions of available WordPress plug-ins.
Oops! I did again.
