And We’re Back!

The holidays put me out of commission for a little while but back we are and back we shall stay! As you can see, the new site is quite fancy dancy.  Note the following cool features.  First off, I have a logo.  A fuse within a number sign logo at that.  Somehow they managed to put the two together in a cool and fancy manner.  Next up, check out the little bar at the top.  Now if you want to read my Fusenews or Reviews or Librarian Previews or what have you, you need only click on one of those little links and all is well.  Awesome, right?  Now scroll down to the bottom of the page.  There you will find links to my Twitter feed (which now actually shows up ON my blog, homina homina) and my Goodreads page (which is where you can see what I’m reading as I read it, but before I review it). Best of all, all the old links redirect to the new ones and I didn’t lose a lick of content!!

Meanwhile I’ve been pounding out last minute reviews to post before the final seconds of 2012 tick away. PLUS we need to look at the best of the year and all the news and new videos and and and and and *pant pant pant*

Needless to say I’m pleased to be here, I like my new format, and I’m excited about the possibilities.

2013 is shaping up to be a helluva year.

  1. Love the new look but mostly love how much faster and better it operates. Looking forward to more of your great reviews and other content.

    Happy New Year.

      It is faster, isn’t it? And oh my goodness, I can post so much faster too! I just did a review and the links uploaded instantly! We fear not change.

  2. Loads fast, looks great!

  3. The link at the top takes me back to the real homepage now instead of the old one! Yay! Yay also for your wise words in the NYTimes debate on kids reading older books, and the F&G of Giant Dance Party that just came in at my bookstore!

    • Elizabeth Bird says:

      Woohoo! You got the F&G? Then it has begun. Thanks too for mentioning the NYTimes debate. That was lots of fun. I’ll try linking to it soonish.

  4. Happy (almost) New Year!

  5. Slick! Love it.
