New Email Subscription Service

Credit: ENGGtalks Ecological Gardening has switched from Feedburner to follow.it . This is because Google has decided to let the email subscription portion of Feedburner lapse in July. Fortunately, I was able to make the switch in timely fashion and import my subscribers, who will get my posts with no interruptions. Follow.it offers subscribers a choice of delivery options besides straight email, which I think is pretty cool.    New subscribers are always welcome! So if you like my posts, please do subscribe. Since this is a slow blog—not to say glacial—I promise you absolutely will not be inundated with emails. 

New Blog Design

Introducing my updated blog design, which I hope readers will find more user friendly. To enhance the reading and browsing experience, I used cleaner colors (which coordinate with my personal business card), and put the text in Verdana instead of Arial. Verdana is designed for more comfortable online reading. I also added share features, and jump breaks ("read more") on longer posts so more content can appear on the front page. I'll continue tinkering with details as I get to it. Look for more informational pages tabbed across the top in coming months. What kinds of information would you like to see?

I like what VP has done - for new readers, start here. Popular posts, or these are my favourites ... somewhere to start, until we are hooked ;>) You have put up some powerful essays recently.
Thanks, Heather.

EE, thanks for stopping by. Some good suggestions, which I hadn't thought of. Glad you appreciate my writing efforts--I'm much more comfortable with words than images!

It works. I've thought about havinga phot page, or at least some sort fo photo archive widget, but it sounds time consuming. Especially with my comparatively crappy blog template. I like your template. Blogs are so... involving. Self absorbed. Time sinks.
Thanks Dave.

Benjamin, Thanks and I agree about time sinking. They are especially so when avoiding chores. :-)

I like your new blog look. It's easy to get around (although it wasn't really difficult before) and I love the humming birds in the borders.
