I've Been Busy!

If you normally read blogs through a reader, take a moment and click through to my actual blog.

That's right -- I've done some housekeeping! And photoshopping, and reorganizing....

The photos were all taken here in Zihuatanejo and I feel like they give readers I good idea of what our little town in like. (And maybe the fact that I put them in the header will mean we can move that much sooner...)

I've also gone through all the blog links on the side and broke the Blogs I Read Everyday category into Writing Blogs and Non-Writing Blogs. I don't mean to imply that the writing blogs are not fun -- that's just how I have them labeled in my Google Reader. If you don't see your blog and I regularly comment on yours, let me know. If you have a blog but haven't posted in months, well... I took you off. Let me know if you start posting again and I'll update the list.

The only new thing is I've added a Twitter widget so you can see my most recent posts. Hopefully I'll remember that's there when I start gabbing about new names for my yodeling band with Stacey.

What do you think?

I love the picture in the header. Beautiful! And the ones in the middle, with the marketplaces, make me miss Belize :)

Megan (or do I call you Rebekah?), I'm glad it made you miss it -- that means I picked the right photos!
