Just a few quick things then we’ll go back to our usual literary brilliance. Heh.
1) If you usually read this blog in Internet Explorer, I’m sorry. I had heard rumors that there were issues opening posts, but I hadn’t been able to replicate the problem on this end. I have now replicated the problem and I am baffled. I emailed Karen of the awesome blog design to see if she might have some insight as to how I might have broken the blog. Let’s all hope she can fix it. (Or say, one of you super smart, super savvy people can help. Anyone? Ben? Anyone?)*
In the meantime can I entreat you to try Firefox maybe? Or Chrome? I love the former and I’ve heard great things about the latter. I promise to post an update when we’re back on track.
2) If you happen to be on Facebook and you’re in any way interested in the novel I have been writing, I’d love it if you would join the Facebook Fan Page I created last week. As you know, I’m on a quest to publish my first novel. One day it will be my author fan page. In the meantime it’s all about my journey to get there!
Writing a book is like raising a child. I’m going to need my village to help me to get it off the ground.
Also, I might post tiny snippets from the novel here and there. Fun!
3) I have been nominated for a couple blog awards. I would be honored and touched if you might vote for me. I’m putting the buttons right here for your voting convenience! (Thank you. Really. It means a lot to me. And I’m not saying that because you’re pretty.)
*Edited to add: Well, dagnabit. It’s not a problem with just my blog. It’s a well known issue with Internet Explorer. I’m going to have to play a bit with the sidebar items to see if I can fix it. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. The blog does open correctly in all other browsers…
