I’m not quite sure what it says about my powers of observation that I’ve only just now realized the theme I chose when I put this blog-thing together is not (as I believed) simple and minimalist, but rather a Winter theme. Complete with snowflakes behind the dates and barren trees down at the bottom of the page.
While I figure out how to make this place look less… festive, really, I highly recommend going to read the blogs I just got around to putting up in a blogroll. They’re over there on the right. I’ll add several more later, but those are some written by people I respect/read/talk with/admire/follow writing suggestions/some combination of the aforementioned that popped into my head almost immediately.
