First and foremost, a HUGE thank you to Sara Bonds from Subjective Beauty for doing such a fantastic job on the redesign! Sara was a pleasure to work with - she's got a great eye, terrific ideas, she's prompt and very responsive, and has the patience
Next order of business - blogrolls. I've finally moved over to one of those funky (no longer so) new smart blogrolls that display not only your link but also your most recent post. Since that extra line makes the blogroll a lot longer I've done a bit of pruning - you don't need me to tell you how to find Dooce. I had to import all the links from the old blogroll manually, so if I've missed yours out please let me know so that I can add it back in. Also, the new list only shows the 25 most recent posts, so if you're someone *cough* Mel *cough* who hasn't been posting lately you'll have to click on "see all" to find your link - or better yet, post more often!
Anything else I've missed? No? Then welcome to the new and improved Around the Island. Kick off your shoes, grab a chair, and make yourself at home.
