For more than two years, I’ve been talking about a redesign for the Stitching for Literacy site and blog. I even signed a contract with a web designer to have it professionally redesigned. The project was delayed and delayed and delayed. Sometimes it was my fault. I gave it a final nudge in December, and since that hasn’t produced results, I have taken matters into my own hands. Ta-da!
It is a work-in-progress, but I’ve decided all websites are—especially blogs—so no apologies or worries on that front.
Come on in and make yourself at home. I hope you’ll be comfortable here.
Perhaps the biggest change is the addition of a Book Club tab in the navigation bar above. It’s a forum (bulletin board, whatever you want to call it), and I think it might be easier to discuss our books there than in the comments here. I’d like to give it a shot. If we don’t like it, we’ll switch back to discussing here.
With a forum, if you get behind and want to comment on a question from some time ago, doing so will bump that discussion back to the top for everyone to see. Plus, you can see more easily when new comments have been made.
Now, I know very little about running a forum, and it’s not styled at all to match this blog. I can’t even figure out how to get back here from there without opening a new browser window and starting over! But I’ll do my best to figure things out as we go along. If you want to help by being a moderator, let me know.
You will have to create a username and password to access the forum, and I think I have to approve you, but then you’re good to go. This is necessary to keep spammers out.
I copied last Thursday’s question into the thread for The Help, and I posted a new question today. Go check it out!
