heads up

The good news is that I finally got my new header up (yeah for cuteFTP and the easiest file transfer ever). I still can't get the blog title to disappear -- I've reduced it to ` to take up as little space as possible. Isn't the new Blogger supposed to be easier? In old Blogger you just toggled the "hide blog title" button. Argh. I was doing so well.

To the designers among you (you know you who are) I know that the green behind my profile no longer "goes" but neither did any of the colour choices Blogger offered. If anyone can pull the hex for one of the blues in the header photograph, I'm all ears and open to suggestions. In the meantime, I was able to do *most* of this by myself, even the photo. That's me in my favorite reading spot on the quiet end of the beach.

One of my goals this year is to keep track of everything I read for the year so there will soon be two lists of books on the blog. I'll keep a short "recently read" list near the top and the full "Books of 2007" down below. I promise not to add a book to the list until it's actually finished. If I was posted a reading wish list it might take over the blog :)

Wow Claire, I love the new header. The first time I went to your blog the header didn't appear but I hit the refresh button and the header loaded just fine. Nice shot!

Love, Mom XX

i don't see a 'small' title anywhere actualy! I like it. I want to add my feet to yours and curl up with a book. But, i think you wouldn't enjoy me there because when most people are reading in their serene places they don't enjoy a yabbering Janie beside them. I have learned this from experience. You might be different though.

Have a good week. I have a text to read now
