Shiny new site!

Hello!  If you are reading this message through your feed reader, then everything has gone according to plan!  I’ve moved my blog from Blogger to WordPress, and also have a shiny new domain: alisonmccarty.com.  I’m still working out a few kinks with links and whatnot, so if you find something that isn’t working right, let me know!

Happy Belated Birthday to Me!

Oh no! I’ve been sitting here thinking that I started this blog sometime in September of last year, because I’m crazy and a) did not make a “look at this blog I started!” post and b) copied over the reviews from my hand-made site to fill up space and make my blog look less lonely. And somewhere along the way I got the idea that I started it in the middle of September, though now that I have the correct info I have no idea where I went wrong.

But! Anyway! Looking over at my LiveJournal, I see that actually, I made my first post here on 26 August 2008, a stunning review of The Stepford Wives. So… yeah. Happy 371 days of blogging to me!

Housekeeping Notes

First, because I forgot to mention this when it happened, I’ve completed the Support Your Local Library Challenge! I said I’d read 50 library books this year, and I have. In less than six months. Hmm. Considering I said I’d read 60 books total this year…. Well, that just goes to show you what unemployment will do to a girl. We’ll see how classes and homework affect this reading rate for the rest of the year.

Also, I’m trying to fix up my Blogger template because I did a rather hack job of turning it into three columns a while back. I’ve found a 3-column version of this template done by someone cooler than me, but I also might go with something different, who knows? Basically, if you visit this site more than once today, you might see some construction going on. If you’ve got any suggestions for things I should add or take away, sidebar-wise, let me know!
