Blog house keeping

This blog will come to you in four parts:

Part 1
I've been thinking about switching up my blog layout.  Mostly because it dives me nuts that my tabs at the top aren't functional.  Yep, I don't know anything about HTML and hence I'm unable to make my blog look pretty, I can only use free blog templates but I can't modify them.  Loser.

Anyway I wanted to give you all a heads up about the potential change.  There's nothing more jarring then when you're favorite blog changes for no apparent reason.

Part 2
Another question I have is about comments.
When you make a comment on a blog, do you check to see if anyone replied to your comment?
Do you check off the notification box?

I normally don't comment in a response to my comments, but I read them all.

Do you feel like this a one sided relationship?  I try to comment on blogs I enjoy reading and I try but sometimes I fail, but I try to comment on everyone's blog who commented on mine.

Part 3
In other news:
I read through Penny and Hank in one sitting, and you know what, it didn't suck.  In fact it was pretty damn funny.  It made me laugh a lot.  I think this story might maybe be worth spending a few more months, maybe a year on, and see if I should query.

It's a good feeling.  It's a great feeling.

I don't think it will take 3 years of solid revising like How To PWN nOObz did.  I think it might take about a year.

I'm ready to give it to my beta's, I think.  YAY.

Anyway.  That's all I have for now... but I think I'll rehash a fun little story about Puppy Size Elephants from my very old project, Project Nice.

Part 4

Once on this planet, when the water levels were different, there was an island on the coast of California.

This island had elephants. ELEPHANTS!

But as the water levels started to rise and the island shrank, so did the elephants.

At one point on this planet there were puppy sized elephants.

Stop. Picture an elephant, perfectly proportionate but the size of a puppy.

Yes, that is the cutest thing in world.

Now stop and picture a HERD of puppy sized elephants.

Now picture that herd of elephants RUNNING.

Yes, now you have the cutest picture nature has ever produced, in your head.


Remember comments enter you into the awesome music contest.


  1. It's honestly not that hard to change the tabs at the top but you should know a bit about HTML. About the comments. If I left a comment or an opinion, yes, I go back, if it's just a great post or a I also don't like getting replies by email.


  2. I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with your blog design. Re comments, I'm the same as Clarissa. I also get to know those who respond to my comments so I deliberately go back to see what they have said.
