Last week was one of those stressful winter weeks were I couldn't seem to get much accomplished and had an inability to write, or at least write well. I'm not happy with what I wrote about Sgt. Van Orman's sad homecoming but it affected me deeply so please take a look anyway. It was one of those cases where I wasn't sure where to post it.
Saturday I visited my sister and tried to help her set up google reader. She still has dial-up. Have you ever watched paint dry? DSL has just become a possibility for her and I hope she can get hooked up soon. But it occurred to me that if she has trouble loading my pages other might too so I have shortened the number of posts on my page to three so there isn't so much to load. I am also using widgets in my sidebar when possible in the hopes that that will help the page load faster.
I am using google reader to generate my blogrolls. My sister pointed out a couple of links that I didn't switch over. I think I have things right now but if I've left you off please let me know!
Terry alerted me that my email was bouncing last week. There was a three day period where I didn't get notification about comments too. This morning my cousin let me know that emails were also bouncing from my other aim account. I'll get a button up with my gmail address soon but meanwhile it's Apple194. If you did send something and it bounced please do try again. It's odd because I was receiving mail, just not all of it.
To address the comment notification problem I have subscribed to my comments so they now show up in my reader. I didn't know how to do this but I noticed that by accessing my dashboard through blogger in draft I could add subscription buttons for both posts and comments in one easy step. A couple of other new features at blogger in draft are a blogroll generator (I like the google option better) and the ability to schedule your posts. I haven't tried that yet but it would have been handy back in December!
