I disappeared this week – did you notice? (Nod. Just nod. Thank you!) I managed to get a new photo of myself, ’cause I know you were all wondering how long my hair has grown. Okay it was just me then. Ahem.
So I worked this week, feverishly, and without big results to share. I hate when that happens – but next week, and the week after that, you shall be overwhelmed with updates and eye candies.
I did get a revamp, upgrade and launch done for Kimberly (previously known as MommaK) – her fall design is up and the thought of fall coming made me run to JCPenney for a couple new pair of sweats. Yes, I bought clothes! Ugh! I shouldn’t have, but baggy sweats are always in, right? So there’s my reward this week, folks. And they are more comfortable than the ones at Old Navy, in case you were wondering. (I linked you right to them, haven’t you gone through checkout yet?)
Back to Petroville, I gave her an upgrade – she’s running WordPress 2.2.2 now and by winter she’ll be sporting 2.3 or whatever the newest version will be in 2 months. I upgraded her plugins (and threw the social bookmarking up here, too – so use it, people!) and I’m totally having feedreader envy.
That stinkerhead – I was all gung-ho on installing Feedburner Feedsmith for her, and getting her to put up a chicklet. Obviously I was completely and totally curious to know what her readership is, why else would I do that? heh. So she gave me the chicklet code, I threw it up into her new widgetized sidebar, and her count was 25 yesterday. (neener neener!) Well put hot mustard on my tongue – that plugin harvested up all of her readership – she jumped to 172 overnight. Damn damn DOUBLE TRIPLE dayyyuummm.
Color me green.
I do have a few other projects in process, and a bunch more in queue. I will be finishing up a few more (paintings and blog designs both) next week.
It also got me curious – does reading my blog and knowing me make you more inclined to buy original art? Does it give you a creative spark? What do you get from my blog that keeps you coming back? Do you wish I shared more tips?
