Tweaking Continues…

OK, so day two (or three?) of having Blogger for the blog, and I’m likin’ it. Got inspired to transfer last year’s worth of entries over. Doesn’t take long, it’s just really tedious work. So, I’m probably not going to be in a big rush to finish.

The new blog address is:

For some reason, the actual name “WhenEFTalks” seems to be taken. I halfway think I’ve probably got it taken somewhere, but I can’t for the life of me figure it out.

I’m also apparently able to integrate the Blogger blog into my regular website, so that visitors there will continue to see it as as seamless thing. It will look like this.

Not bad.

While I’ve been at it, I’ve also been doing some other cleaning up of the website, which was probably long overdue…changed out some sidebar pics, fixed some other pages, etc, etc….

Bottom line: routine maintenance still underway….stay tuned….EF

(BTW: Never did get to post here about the Connections Show tonight. Posted about it on Facebook and the Connections website. Full info is here. Come see us if you can….)

One thought on “Tweaking Continues…

  1. The blog is looking good. I like blogspot because I don't have to worry about the software. I can upload photos easily. I can embed video easily. I don't have to worry about the nuts and bolts. I can focus on writing.
