Tweaks and Changes

Please let me know if you have any problems navigating the Web site. I have updated my theme to a newer version and added a sitemap. Also, I changed some things around and added a new picture on the About page.

I put a Goodreads widget in the sidebar and removed my LibraryThing widget. I don’t actually use my LibraryThing profile because free users are limited to 200 books; however, Goodreads allows users to add as many books as they like. Feel free to add me as a friend if you have a Goodreads account.

I’m still having the 500 Error problem when I post. I am not sure what it is, but I’m wondering if it’s related to my theme. I have several other blogs that use some of the same plugins, and I don’t have the same issues. If anyone else is using the Cutline theme from WordPress and has noticed these problems, please let me know.

I need to get caught up on Write Beside Them so I can be a useful contributor at the wiki. Tomorrow!

Finding Your Way

Now that I’ve changed the look, I had to make some changes in navigation.  In my old theme, the links to my Ideas, Handouts, and Classroom Blog could all be found in the green bar that used to run along the top of the page.  They are now accessible in the sidebar under “Links.”  Archives that used to be in the sidebar are now on their own page — Archives — which can be found in the top of the page.

It is my hope that now that this blog, aimed at other educators, looks different from my classroom blog, perhaps my students will no longer be confused when they arrive here and cannot find what they are looking for.

As always, if you are confused, feel free to contact me, and I’ll help you find what you’re looking for.

New Theme

I have changed the look of the blog after having the same theme for some time.  I realize some of the familiar navigation links are not yet available.  I will make all the alterations I need to make for those links to appear.

The header image is courtesy of my husband.  One of my colleagues told me that she happened upon an intersection of Huff Rd. and English St. — right here in Atlanta, and I never even knew about it — and I knew I had to make a photo of the intersection sign my header.  Well, the problem was that I’m OCD enough that the colors not matching any longer really bothered me.  Thus, a whole new look.

I’ll get the old links up soon.
