Hello my dears! I am back from my selfimposed hibernation! I hope everyone had a good christmas and new year! I did, I hardly left my parents house, it was ace! there was a lot of snow, but we were lucky with our travel dates so missed the icy chaos.
Today, I just wanted to do a bit of housekeeping:
1. I’ve got a new blog header and have tweaked my layout! Do you like it? It took me blumming ages to work out how to make those rounded edges in photoshop! It’s a great programme, but intuitive it is not! I’m pleased with the result though!
2. I’m on twitter, eventually! I’ve resisted for so long, but I have no idea why, because I love it, and I think it’s no more time sapping than facebook, which I’m ok at avoiding when I have other things on. I’m following some of you already, but everyone else please come and find me so I’m not so sad and alone! I’m @apple_franca.
3. I’ve installed the Disqus comment system. This means everyone commenting has to give their email address, which is what I want (fully anonymous attracts so much spam), and it has the option of replying to individual comments like on the wordpress blogs.
I do have a question here for you: Do you check back for replies to comments? Would you like individual replies? There’s been some discussion on the Friend Friday group whether it’s necessary. Lots of people love it and get annoyed at bloggers that don’t reply individually, but personally I rarely check back, unless I’ve left a comment that invites a reply.
If I’ve said something like ‘Love your dress’, I take it as given that the blogger receiving the comment is happy, and a blanket ‘thank you all’ is fine with me. I would rather the person where I’ve left the comment checked out my blog than left a reply on their blog. And that is the way I have responded myself on this blog. But I know people feel differently, and I am happy to change my approach if that’s what people want! So tell me please!
Normal blogging service will resume tomorrow, I have lots of photos and outfits in store!
