I just wanted to make a quick announcement that I’ll be re-booting the blog on monday. Here are some under the hood changes I have made during the hiatus besides writing posts and laying out in the sun:
- Re-configured the custom google search box. Its now connected to my adsense and google analytics accounts (hence making me earn some bucks if people google through it).
- Added a mail notification box in my comments section (thanks Dylan), I can’t believe I haven’t used this funtion earlier, its brilliant. Especially when commenting on other blogs.
- I have finally found a great social media sharing widget Digg Digg (thanks Castor). Check it out floating to the left when you are ”inside” a post.
- Updated the contact form, I went back to Contact Form 7 since my previous form was a try-out version that would start to cost. Unfortunately there is something wrong with my settings because it doesn’t give a confirmation that the message was sent. However, it does work but I’d like to fix it so it works properly.
Design- and enginewise I’ll keep tweaking the blog on a regular basis and I’d appreciate feedback on whats working or not. Besides the comment form I need feedback on color schemes mostly because I’m thinking of going black after seeing Fiffi’s nice convert from blogspot to wordpress (she’s using the same theme, Thesis as I do).
Other than that I encourage you to vote in the poll to the right and check in here tomorrow for a guest piece plug.
Film Quickie: Friday the 13th Part III is hillarious (I saw it for the first time yesterday), I can totally see how Wes Craven/Kevin Williamson got some inspiration for Scream in this one.
