Just wanted to mention if you like my new manga-style profile portrait you can make your own at this site. Their English needs work, and the interface is a bit tricky, but it's still fun.
In other news, I am considering actually designing a new look for my blog instead of just using this cheap-but-cute-cookie-cutter template from the Blogger template collection.
You wanna know a secret? I've designed websites a few times before. And site graphics. From scratch. And sometimes people even paid me for it.
So why, you ask, have I allowed my words to languish here so unadorned for months on end?
Well, there are three main reasons.
1.) See blog subtitle.
2.) I've been busy doing paid work and chasing a small red-haired whirlwind.
3.) I know HTML. I use Dreamweaver. But I don't know CSS, which is what I would need to employ to create a really spiffy layout for this blog.
But I saw Mrs. Fortune's snazzy flipped blog the other day, and I got jealous.
Lucky for me, it does just so happen that I'm sleeping with a professional web developer who might be persuaded to help me out with my CSS deficiency.
So . . .
Give me another week or so to get over this crazy debilitating post-dental-surgery infection, and we'll see what happens . . .
