Building the Blog

While printing what seemed like a tree's worth of documents to digest over the weekend, I messed around with the blog this afternoon. I've said this before, I think, but MAN it takes (me) good chunks of time just to figure out what all I can do at the most basic blogging level. It's not that I expect whatever features I think of to easily materialize within two or three clicks. It's just that I want it to be that way.

I looked more closely at what FeedBurner does — and can do — for me; then through that account I added a headline animator and an email subscription form. Changes I'd like to make very soon include replacing the list of writerly books with a relevant blogroll and finding a different template. I'll tackle larger issues after those.
