I thank everyone who reads and follows the blog. This blog is my diary of the things I do in the shop; I love sharing what I do — my thoughts and techniques, my side trips, etc. But I also enjoy reading your feedback, and respond to reader requests. As a result, I have made some minor and cosmetic changes to the look of the blog.
Change #1: Modified the Sidebar
You will notice that the Sidebar is now much shorter than before. Why? Because I created a new Page called Sponsors and Affiliates, which is accessible from two places: You can reach it from the last item on the second menu above; and I have also included a link on the Sidebar, under the section titled “Please support my sponsors”. More on this new page, below
Change #2: Added a Sponsors and Affiliates page
You can see the new page by clicking here. Please let me know if you are interested in advertising on this blog:
Change #3: Modified the Footer
I changed two of the linked images; this allowed me to include two major sponsors of the blog, Leigh Industries and Laguna Tools. The images are linked to either monthly specials, or to new technology being introduced by these two companies. I will use this space to highlight new and interesting things offered by my sponsors in the future.
Change #4: Added a new Contact Page
I made this change a while back and some of you are already using the linked signature. Clicking on my signature at the end of every article will take you to the new Contact Page. Please use it as often as you need it.
Change #5: Changed the Menu item prie Dieu
Some readers may not be familiar with the term “prie Dieu”. It means “Kneeler”; as a result, I changed the page name to “Kneelers”.
Change #6: Added menu item hints to the Conferences menu items
If you now hover over a Conference menu item, you will see the phrase “Woodworking in America – Berea/Cincinnati”, etc. This will help mostly new readers, and it will remind the readers who follow the blog about the various locations where the various WIA conferences have been held.
Some photos to illustrate:
I hope the following images will help, if still not sure where to find dome of the items I have mentioned (click on the images to enlarge them):
Your turn: I request your feedback
I look forward to hearing from you, as you read and otherwise peruse content on the blog:
- Do you like the lighter, new look?
- Would you like to see other changes?
- Would you like to publish an article, and become a contributing Guest Author? This is a feature available to anyone reading my blog.
At the risk of repetition, thanks for reading my ramblings, and looking at my photos and videos.
