I’ll spare you the embroidered pillow reading "Bless This Mess…"

…Mostly because I don’t understand the point of needlepoint pillows. They feel like bushy yarn, like the sweater your grandmother knit you, that your mother forced you to wear for family photos. Yes, the one with the unicorn. They frizz your hair, and in general, might as well be burlap shams. I hate needlepoint pillows. They always look dirty, too. It’s the same reason I don’t like beige bedding. Why would you do that to yourself?

Thank you for baring with me as changes are made to the appearance of this site. One fun element I added is a threaded discussion section (replacing traditional comments), where you can upload your own photo, link to your blog, etc. And it’s all done automatically when you sign in with any of the following free accounts:

AOL/AIM, Google, Yahoo!, Blogger, OpenID, TypePad, LiveJournal, WordPress.com, Vox

So come join the discussion, and check one another out by scoping the profiles. Click here set up your profile. Simply choose an existing account from the dropdown menu on the right, or create a new one.

  1. Looks like you figured it out. But for those who haven't yet… once you sign in using any of your accounts, or by creating a new one, simply click on your icon, and you'll have the option to make changes, upload a photo, etc.

  2. And… if you have a few favorite people to whose comments you always look forward, you can even get updates telling you when the person commented. Just sign up to follow their comments.

  3. Yes. Things are a bit of a mess now, but I'm working on it. Most NORMAL people TEST stuff on a test site before rolling out changes. But, what the hell. I'm not that uptight (or organized).

  4. I have no clue how this works. Both of my sons have grown up and left home, leaving me to fend for myself technology-wise. Ungrateful kids.

  5. I must be an idiot. I can't figure out how to add my pic. When I sign in it just takes me here.

  6. Looks like you figured it out. For others: LEAVE A COMMENT HERE, THEN CLICK ON YOUR OWN ICON. YOU'LL SEE A PROMPT TO EITHER CREATE A PROFILE, OR YOU CAN FURTHER PERSONALIZE, BY ADDING PHOTO, ETC.

  7. So cool, Stephanie — I now have ANOTHER excuse for not getting anything done while online. Thanks for the alibi :-)

  8. All these changes you are making are quite exciting. It is a wonderful thing to watch you change and grow and prosper. I hope this note finds you well.

  9. testing… this is the poster formally known as nh. Just moved into a fabulous apt in DC in you guessed it.

  10. The features you have added are pretty cool, but I have on request. Can the ads just stay on one side of the page? I find it annoying on any site when the ad is between postings. Readers will still see and click the ads on the sides (margins?) of the web page.

    Just my two cents.
