Housekeeping and A Publication

Hello friends! If you're reading this in a feed (and if you aren't subscribed, you should be - I recommend Google Reader for all your aggregating needs!) I suggest your click on through to my actual blog. I've done a hefty redesign and I think it looks pretty swanky!

The header is courtesy of my very talented friend Elma Gildenhuys and the background was created by myself, using Blogger's Template Designer. (Easy to use, even for those of us who are graphically challenged!) There is still some tweaking to be done so this isn't the final design. But I'd love to hear what you think of the changes so far!

Another small change I've made is putting Google Ads on my blog. I hope they aren't too obnoxious and that y'all don't hate them and then hate me and then quit reading my blog because you think I'm a sell out. I don't know if I'll actually make any revenue from the ads, but as money is tight and it would be nice to make a little cash from my writing, I figured it was worth a try. If it turns out that it's not worth it, then I can always remove the ads with the simple click of a mouse.

And speaking of writing, today a flash fiction piece that I wrote has been published on an online journal called The Molotov Cocktail. Check it out and enjoy!
