I'm posting mostly over at Quirky Cookery right now, where I play with my food and teach you to have fun with it, too. Come check me out?


Quirky Jessi Site Updates



(Obviously, this isn't something Dave sent me....I think you'll survive anyway)

Yep, it's one of those posts. The kind where I tell you what I've changed around here and pretend that you might actually care....except this time, there are a few changes you're going to like.

First up, we have a completely new layout. If you haven't been to the main site lately because you're viewing from a reader, you're definitely going to want to check it out. There's still some tweaking to be done, but I love how it's looking.

With that comes some slightly different navigation, as well. You should be able to find everything you need up top....how to subscribe (including email), search, where to find me outside of QJ, and a few new features. Even Quirky Lurky is still there.

You'll also see that I've started a Quirky Tumblr. One of the reasons I get behind with posting is that I have 'so' much I want to post, but sometimes I end up with things that don't really need a full post to describe or it's just a picture or two that I hang on to until the appropriate topic comes up. With Tumblr, you'll get to see many of those silly pictures or random links that don't need any explanation.

If you visit QJ itself, there's a widget in the sidebar that displays thumbnails of the most recent pictures, too. I'm still looking for a better format for that, but for now, it gets the job done and you can click through to the Tumblr site for the larger pictures. Once over there, you can comment on individual posts or subscribe to the RSS feed, just as you would here.

Right above that, you'll also notice a new Top Commenters area. Once upon a time, I had a CommentLuv-like widget, but it didn't work the way I wanted it to, so I dropped it. Now it's back and right near the top so if you're one of the top commenters of the last 100 comments, viewers are going to see your link almost immediately. I love when you guys comment, so I want you to get some traffic out of it, too.

Alright, for now I think that's about it. Let me know if there's anything not working the way you think it should or if you'd like me to add anything else.
