Sorry for the non-post here, but I wanted to announce some new plugins that I am trying out along with this new theme. You will find all of these in the sidebar, somewhere. (I’m moving them around to get the best layout.)
- A new “About Me” widget with a photo and a blurb, with a link to the more detailed “About Me” page. There’s also a link to a new page called “Contact Me” which has email addresses, IM screen names, etc. galore.
- A widget with links to my post and comment RSS feeds, including the little orange RSS icon.
- A widget which displays the blog categories as a collapsible list. I’m very happy with this one, since I have a lot of categories and this saves tons of sidebar space.
- I know I’ve stated before that I think Twitter is an adolescent waste of time, but darn if I keep coming back to it. I’m warming up to the idea of “micro-blogging” and so I’ve included a very lightweight Twitter widget with my three latest Twitter updates. The title just says “What am I doing?”, no mention of Twitter itself except in a link. And if you are really bored, you can follow my Twittering habits here.
You might not have realized it, but there was already a widget in the sidebar that posts the 10 most recent additions to my del.icio.us bookmarks. I’m working on getting a widget here that will allow you to leave audio comments. It’s all about enhancing the user experience!
