Information on Technical Tweaks

Attention everyone:

Herein follows a boring technical post that describes the minor design changes that I implemented on WWYG?!

This occurred this afternoon while I was at the office but technically was "off" since the building officially closed at 2 pm to honor the Labor Day holiday. (We are off on Monday.) Tegan had stuff to do, so I caught up on my Internet time-wasting and fiddled with web page template design.

So, what did I do?

Well, I removed the NotifyList box that was cluttering up the sidebar. It's a good idea, but it didn't do what I thought it was going to do. I hoped it would automatically send notifications to those that signed up, but all it does (seemingly) is provide me a handy list of well-wishers that I must then email to tell when new posts are live. NotifyList is a good idea, but I don't need their help to do that, so off it goes.

Second I adjusted my Links list (or as I like to call it, Interesting Sites to Visit). I took a few web pages off--pages that don't need my help anyway and adjusted my settings so that when my listed links update, you can see it with a pretty "New" starburst. (If this encourages my fellow bloggers to update more often, then that is good for everyone don't you think?)

I hope you enjoy these twiddly bits as much as I enjoy wasting my time putting them there. If I make further changes, then you will be the first to know.
