Updating and Site Maintenance

Nothing much at the flea market yesterday, just odds and ends I didn’t want to negotiate over. I wasn’t feeling so great either; I was still a little woozy and dehydrated from spending most of the past two days cruising the village-wide garage sale with Mom. She complains we never do anything together, so I was sort of obligated to go, but my arm didn’t need that much twisting.

She found a nice vintage floor lamp and some dishes; among many other things, I picked up this fabulous upgrade of my Mastercrafter Swinger Clock:

It’s complete and immaculate - like someone took a time machine on a shopping spree in 1950! (Holy Decorators - it still has the paper safety tag on the electrical cord. How often do you see that?) Ironically, unlike the duct-taped beater I picked up last year, the clock mechanism doesn’t work. I have plenty of other clocks - Breyer or otherwise - that do, so that wasn’t a deal breaker. Off to the saleslist for the beater!

Speaking of my saleslist, I was just going through my preliminary BreyerFest preparations here - and as usual, feeling dreadfully behind. The saleslist is just about the only thing I have "finished." My biggest worry is what topics to cover in the Sampler. I don’t lack for ideas, but I sometimes wonder if I should revisit and rewrite some topics that I’ve covered here already. Not everyone has access to the blog, and it might be nice to re-release this information to another audience. I have a long day tomorrow, and plenty of time to think about it.

Another thing I’m thinking about is adding a few more features to the blog itself. I’m definitely considering adding a "Recent Comments" tracker. Partly to keep a lid on spam - it hasn’t been too much of a problem here, yet - but also to keep track of newer comments being made in older posts. I know I tend to stop looking, or commenting, on posts once they drop off the front page, and I was quite surprised to see the number of interesting, substantive comments I had missed when I was doing a little site maintenance a week or so ago.

Don’t worry, I won’t go all "Big Sister" on you - heck, I’ve barely "monetized" the blog beyond the obligatory Paypal donation button.

Next up: we finally start talking Tenite!

Hi, We'd love to hear about the ease in which you were able to design and launch your website, your ability to add or remove features and functions in Web Design Cochin and if your website templates,themes or "free or low cost" website services have accommodated your companies' overall growth.
