New look – again

Standard

I changed my blog theme and appearance…again.  🙂 

What do you think of the dandelions?  They were from a really pretty image set from http://www.obsidiandawn.com/.  I hope they like how I’ve used them.

Once again, I’ve been visiting the Ninja Aunt’s place and saw a really cool little year-in-review from wordpress and thought to myself, “hey, I wonder if I got one?”  And I did!  (they sent it to an email address I still keep for flickr but never use otherwise – go figure…)

So…here you go…

The stats helper monkeys at WordPress.com mulled over how this blog did in 2010, and here’s a high level summary of its overall blog health:

Healthy blog!

The Blog-Health-o-Meter™ reads Wow.

**aside – when I think of monkeys crunching numbers about blog stats, for some reason, this comes to mind:

Yes, Virginia, it’s snowing in Crazyville!

Standard

Thanks to a neat little extra (courtesy of the geniuses at WordPress), it’s snowing in Crazyville!  Don’t ask me how they do it, I just think it’s fun.  It’ll go away in a couple of days, though, so don’t despair – we’re not changing our location from Texas to the North Pole anytime soon!!!

For now, enjoy a snowman on us.
