Technology bites…

1. Did you know you can now subscribe to my blog by email?  Just click the link in the top box in the column on the right.  Once you subscribe, you’ll receive a verification message in your inbox (if you don’t get it, check your spam folder).  Be sure to reply in order for your email to be added to my blog feed.

That’s it!  No more having to remember to check my site – whenever i post updates, new entries will automatically arrive in your inbox – no further effort required.  How cool is that?

2. I replaced the hard drive on my laptop myself.  Yup, all by lonesome and it took a screwdriver, 6 screws and about two minutes.  Turns out i suffered through those months of corrupted harddrive issues for nothing. 

I’m now kicking myself for not doing this sooner and instead listening to the idiot at the bigbox electronics store who told me this was hard to do and i should drop it off at their shop.  I didn’t (it’s an old laptop so wasn’t worth the proposed repair bill) and was seriously considering buying a new laptop but then decided to try the repair myself first. 

Good thing too – that chunk of cash can now go towards my new torch set up…

3. It’s my ONE YEAR BLOGGING ANNIVERSARY!!!  A year ago, i was a fledgling beadmaker who’d just bought a kiln and was tentatively reaching out to the world hoping to find someone out there who didn’t mind listening to me blather on about everything glass. 

Twelve months and nearly 12,000 visits later, i feel like i’ve carved out my own little place on the web and want to give a huge THANK YOU to everyone who’s stopped by to order, chat, compliment, comment or email.  I can’t even begin to explain how great it feels to have folks from all over the world stop by to visit and share in my passion…

I’ll be doing a complete revamp of this blog shortly and will make a effort to post more frequently.  In the meantime, if there’s anything you’d like to see more (or less) of on this site, just let me know either by email or in the comments…

I’d love to hear from you!
