Cha Cha Cha Changes
First up is a change many of you asked for when we polled you during our Anniversary Celebration and one we Dishes are very excited to implement. You now have the ability to reply directly to any - or all - of the individual comments on our blog posts. Isn't that cool? We think so!
Did you notice the link for the February schedule below the "What's Coming" slide show? Clicking on that link will take you to our "Coming Attractions" blog for the current month.
Below the "What We're Reading" slide, we've added another link that will take you to Andrea's "New Releases" blog for the current month. This way you won't have to search for Andrea's all-important list while you're shopping for those must-read books!
Speaking of our slides, the site we were using for our slide shows (slide.com) is closing its doors. We're using the Picasa/Blogger slide show but would like to find one that gives us the ability to label each slide as slide.com did. Know of any sites that do that? Let us know!
Have you liked us on Facebook? Do you follow us on Twitter? We've added new buttons to the right sidebar that make following us easy peasy!
Did you know you can follow us by email? Just enter your email address in the "follow by email" box below the Twitter button and you'll receive an email notification every time we post a new blog. That way you'll never miss out on our great author visits, like this week's schedule of Jillian Hunter, Elizabeth Bevarly and J.L. Saint/Jennifer St. Giles or Buffie's Hot Dish (this Wednesday!) or our great giveaways!
Whew! Feels good to cross that task off my list. Now what should I do next? There's that pile of laundry on the washer (but I still have clean clothes in the closet so it hasn't reached the critical level), the dogs would probably enjoy a walk (but it's so cold outside!), there are dirty dishes in the sink (but again, still clean ones in the cabinet so not critical...yet), I should make a run to the grocery (but still have milk, flatbread and chicken; surely I can make a meal of that!). Hmmmm....there is that new ARC of a book I've been waiting...and waiting...and waiting for that came in on my Nook the other night. I'll be writing a review once I finish reading it so that makes it work, right? I mean, it's not like I'll be curling up on the couch with my cozy blanket and my snuggly fur furnaces and my hot tea and my Nook for fun, right? Right?
