I mentioned in that last post that I couldn't take the credit for my new blog look, but I didn't tell you who was responsible.
Squirrels can be shy, so I wanted to check with her first.
I'm really pleased that she's allowing me to credit her.
If the world is roughly divided between givers and takers, Beleaguered Squirrel is deffo in the former group. In spite of flying high with a major career change while simultaneously juggling a couple of kids (not easy with those teensy tiny paws) she still found time to devote to me and my blog.
There have been the inevitable teething problems.
The new links I'd added were inexplicably triplicated - easy to sort even for a techy twit like me.
And I managed to work out why all the links embedded in posts seemed to have disappeared ...
that'll be cos I'd set them up to be the same colour as the background then ...
But my stat counter and site meter have also gone AWOL.
I get summaries emailed to me and I've come to the conclusion that ...
EITHER people hate the new look so much that word has gone out to boycott my blog - a highly effective manvoevre since it appears I haven't had a single visit since the switch ...
OR I need to configure something or other.
One good thing about making the changes was that I needed to blog surf to update the links and came across 2 things that made me laugh out loud.
I'll share them with you here - assuming you're not boycotting me.
If you are, it's your loss, cos they're really very funny.
On Aba's Place I saw this. At a time we're all being warned about germs spreading on public transport, this is a timely reminder that not everything that's infectious is bad.
