Now where did we leave off…?

The batteries are recharged! I honestly don’t know how some bloggers do it year after year, I just don’t have the stamina. But that doesn’t mean that I don’t read the blogs! Nothing recharges the ‘ol blogging batteries like lurking about all of your sites.

Lots of changes coming soon, to this site and the publishing industry in general. It’s going to be interesting! Much of which I think is summed up by Adrian Tomine’s New Yorker cover this week. I’m going to frame it for my office.

So a belated congratulations to both the Theorist and Susannah, each for the new chapters they have just started! It rocks!

So thanks for sticking around and not deleting me off your RSS reader. We’ll be back up to speed soon. Too much time has passed and too much has gone on, I just have to figure out where to jump in.

Adding audio

Part of the new set-up here is my hopes of adding fresher content. Which, of course, has lead me to research podcasts. There are only a handful that I keep up with, but in all my recent digging around I ran across this local podcast aggregate site and then another blogger calls for a local podacasters meet-up.

I might just have to swing by the old Pita Stop and get the scoop. I think it’d be neat to jump out there and post some interviews with a few of the bazillion authors passing though Birmingham. Maybe an interview with some of you cool book design bloggers too…

‘scuse the mess

I have been wanting to update the site and make room for some of the newer media plug-ins, widgets, etc. that I keep seeing on other people’s blogs, so I’m messing around with the templates. Hope it won’t keep you from coming back.

To be honest, I’m going to miss the simplicity a clean lines of the old just text layout. But I’m tired of drooling over what other people are doing and not getting to offer it myself. Now I get to participate!

Hopefully things will settle down over the next week here, site wise.
