New Year. New Look.

As of yesterday I've been blogging on Accident for an entire year. I'm pretty darn impressed with myself. That's a lotta writing about a whole lotta nothin'. And I actually have people who are reading me! Nearly 30 thousand hits so far. Amazing!

So, what do you think? I don't like the picture. But there are precious few pictures of me that I can stand. And very few of those have Julia in them. And I've heard from more than one person that they clicked over here for one thing, but Julia's cute face convinced them to read more. I hate to use the kid's good looks, but she's gotta be good for something, right? So, this picture will do until I get Kristin to take another.

Now, if only I can figure out how to get the comments link to say something different...

I love the look.

I love the picture.

Congratulations on all the hits and traffic generated in just one year. :) :) :)

The only thing I don't love is that it's taking freaking forever to load. The server that seems to be causing the problem is static.flickr.com, maybe because of the two flickr badges?

Also, the LGBT Parenting Exchange webring loads off to the right in FireFox, covering your wish list. :(

Saucy! And like others have said, I think the picture's great - love Julia's expression & the wind through your hair.

I love that photo as well- it is beautiful. & I like that you are looking out towards more adventures :)

I am SOOOO effing impressed by your redesign! Did you do this?? You seriously need to give lessons. It is so calming & soothing.

hurrah! & happy 1 year in the blogosphere.

Thanks for all the feedback, guys!

Liza: I've actually removed the hotlinks to Flickr (except the flickrbadge) so let me know if it's still loading slow.

I'm not sure what to do about the firefox problem. I do my editing here at work (shhh!) but I have firefox at home. I may have to break down and take some time at home to try to figure it out (if I didn't already fix it... I noticed some loose code earlier today)

Cali: I did a lot of it myself. However, I did cheat some with an online tool that helped generate the columns. I made choices, plugged in some information, picked colors and it generated this. But, to be fair to myself, there were bugs in the code that I had to go track down and fix so that the columns lined up right. And I changed a lot, and it was really hard to get the right colors... There's a little box on the bottom of my page with a link to the designer and the utility.

It is so beautimous. I want to make a patchwork dress out of it and spin in circles.

I love the picture. Love it. And I love the whole masthead in general. Mastheads are a mystery to me. Pretty please, would you email me directions on how to put a picture in a masthead? Write them as if you were explaining the process to Julia. Or maybe Oscar.

I love the new look too. I almost thought I was at the wrong blog. I am so used to the polka dots popping up when I am reading you. I like this one much better.
