Many of you have noticed a couple of technical issues that have been plaguing the blog for a while. The more annoying one is the way Blogger has been butchering the quality of pictures. It's not my camera or the photo sources I've been using; it's the way Blogger is now displaying its hosted images. The only comfort is that when you click on the picture itself it opens up normally and in full size and resolution. So basically, it's still there, you just need to click for the full experience.
Only slightly less annoying is the LinkWithin widget I use in every article to suggest other posts on this blog that might interest the reader. They're supposed to be of similar subject, but for the last two weeks LinkWithin seems to be digging up random items that have no relevancy to the topic at hand. Sometimes it's quite amusing to get a blast from The Non-Blonde's past, but I truly wish they'd get their act together and fix the widget.
Then there's the issue with email subscriptions: months ago I made a full switch to Feedburner and removed the FeedBlitz link because it was unreliable. There are several options on the menu bar for following the Non-Blonde, including by email. Just remember to click the link in the confirmation email FeedBurner sends you, otherwise the subscription doesn't go through. Some email services tend to flag these subscription verification notices as spam, so if you don't see them within a few hours, please check your junk folder and see if it's there (and click the link!). This is especially common for Yahoo, AOL and Hotmail users, but also email services in other countries and occasionally even Gmail.
That's it, for now, I hope.
