Kickass new design and jumping on the bandwagon

First off, I'd like to draw your attention to my kickass new site design, courtesy of my brilliant copilot. For an engineer, my computer coding skills are woefully inadequate (we materials engineers tend to use FORTRAN for our coding needs--if you know anything about programming, you just snorted in derisive laughter) and I had no clue how to achieve what I wanted. I came to him like a bossy client with vague and flimsy ideas of a vision, but he managed to bring the magic--such as every time you come to the site or refresh, you get a random banner. MAGIC.

I also decided to start using Bloglovin', which is an awesome little organizer for the blogs that you read, but I'm sure that this isn't news to you. I'm not an early adopter. My copilot managed to convince me to let go of my VHS tape player just last year. But if you're a fuddy like me, check it out and follow my blog with Bloglovin. Now I can actually keep up to date with my internet buddies and I don't have to shamefully comment on your posts weeks after the fact.

  1. I may have just artificially enhanced your page-view stats for this post by repeatedly refreshing my page to see all your banner pictures! Very nice.

  3. I like it before; I like it now. I don't need bloglovin, since I can see in my dashboard when you've updated the site. :)

    Are you going to use some of the pics from double dog dare in your banner rotation? I think some of them would be cool to see in the rotation.
