Hey everyone, hope you’re having a good new year. This is just a short note to update you on some maintenance stuff, since this blog has undergone some changes in the last few months.
1. Updated links:
I’ve updated the links section, which I’d neglected for most of the last 2 years. So you’ll find some of the links gone, as well as some new ones added. Among those are 2 of my most loyal readers (Zahera and Prixie – thanx for still visiting after all this time, even though the posts are coming way slower than before), a new blog my wife and I started last year, as well as the site of the President of Iran, who seems to be quite adept at the blogging thing. I’m not one for politics, but the man has impressed me, and he writes very well – so check out his blog and see if you learn anything new about his country, other than the negative propoganda going round in the news. (Thanks to Shafinaaz for the link – found it on her blog).
2. Subscribe by email:
I also added a subscription link, which you’ll find at the bottom of the right hand column. If you’d like to be updated whenever there’s something new on this blog, you can click on that to find out more.
3. Theme changes:
You may have noticed this blog turned green late last year. That’s not because it got ripe (I know…corny. But I love making corny jokes ;) ) – but because I’ve wanted to make a big change in the look for a long time. I tried some of the other WordPress themes, but nothing caught my fancy (I’m very particular – so that’s not surprising). Because I know almost nothing about the visual side of blogs, I can’t design my own theme – nor do I want to. But if anyone has a good 3-column theme that would work with WordPress, let me know.
Anyway, hope you’re all good, and hope you’ll stick with the blog in 2009.
