A Couple Quick Blog Notes

Hi all. Hope your spring is off to a great start. Mother Nature isn't sure if she wants us to have spring yet. We're doing a bit of yo-yoing on the thermometer these days. Hopefully the warm weather is coming.

I just wanted to let you know about a few items as I've been working on the structure of the blog lately. You may have noticed the disappearance of the navigation menu below the blog header. I have moved and changed it a bit. It's now at the very top of the blog with dropdown options instead of everything listed separately. So if you're looking for something, check those dropdowns. Among other things, the list of author interviews has been moved there. They now have their own page.

My author photos are gone only temporarily. I wanted to find a widget that would allow them to rotate since the list of them was getting so long. The first option I tried was having negative effects on other parts of the blog, so I had to remove that one. I'm in the process of finding a new one now.

I've been playing with the side bars a bit to get the look I like best. Hopefully I won't mix you up too much being able to find things that were once somewhere else. If you have any problems finding something you're looking for, please let me know.

And last I wanted to give you a heads up that I've added some affiliate links. As most of you know, I started adding a Goodreads link to reviews and I also wanted to start adding some buy links for those who want to purchase a book I'm reviewing or add it to a wish list. Since I'm going to do that I've signed up for some affiliate programs. You'll see some general links to those programs over in the far sidebar as well. Not all the links I'm including are affiliates. I wanted to give a good selection of places and formats--that's my top priority. If any income is generated from the links it will be used for expenses related to the blog--domain name, graphics, etc. As the programs are added I'll update the information on the disclosures pages (which you can find in that new navigation menu!).

I have more fun stuff to get up this week--a new quote some reviews. So stay tuned and happy reading!

How exciting! I know it's really hard to find time to maintain the website and keep it fresh, but I really like what you've done. I am still using a blogger account for my blog, but I keep thinking about getting a domain name and taking things to the next level. You are inspiring me! Now, if I could just get the reader base you have. . . :-)

Kristine, keep up the hard work. Blogs take so much time, but if you're persistent, you'll see those increases you're looking for. Happy reading--and blogging, friend!
