You might notice a different appearance over on the left sidebar, under Links. I spent Tuesday night playing with a new presentation for the blogroll. It’s not finished yet, and I think it could use some tweaking…and I’m still not sure how much I like it, given my current blog theme. In fact, I’m totally enamored of Mania’s blogroll solution…and may turn into a copycat.

In the meantime, please bear with our rather inelegant appearance for a bit. I promise to have it cleaned up by the end of the weekend. 


I hope.


PS: I’ve also noticed the site is very sluggish the past 18 hours or so, and in some cases hasn’t loaded at all. I’ve filed a support ticket with my host provider; hopefully they’ll feed the hamsters soon!

    Incidentally, I think your theme is one of the most gorgoeus I’ve seen. It amazes me every time I comes here.

    I saw Kestrel on BRK’s blog making a comment and now looking I see what happened to the online comic. =)

    Glad to know your doing ok.

    Hey Kestrel, I just noticed the Outland Bound bloglink also points to the Hunter’s Prowl page. You might’ve missed it.

    Ooops…probably from transcribing all those links too late at night! Thanks, Loronar…fixing now. :)

First, a flourishing tip of the hat to Matt Mullenweg and the entire Automattic team for giving us the wonder that is WordPress.

Chris Pearson and the crew at DIYThemes deserve a huge round of applause for the Thesis Theme for WordPress. You lot make it look like I know how to write CSS and php!

However, even with Thesis, I'd never have made the site look half as good without the fantastic, step-by-step tutorials by a wonderful Aussie lady,Amelia Briscoe at Thesis Video Tutorials. Couldn't have done it without you!

Finally (saving the best for last), the Aerie would still be gathering dust if not for the occasional poke from my dear friend, Tami Moore. Her good-natured wheedling culminated in an offer to host a guest article from me, and was the spark that reignited my blogging fires. Even embiggened virtual hugs aren't enough to express what Tami's friendship means to me.
