I have upgraded my blog to take advantage of Blogger's gadgets which make keeping up all the stuff to the right (-->) much easier.
As a result, I also now have a followers box. Add yourself if you read me! But no guilt if you don't. :)
In addition, there are some ads over there. A few extra dollars would go a long way for my family. So if you see something interesting, click!
I am also tracking my visits with sitemeter now. Don't worry, it doesn't give me your name and social! Just number of hits, what website referred you here, what the traffic is like. I guess I am making my blog more serious, although it continues to be a fond hobby of mine, not a business or anything like that.
