Update: A compilation of the blog’s best posts is now filed by category at the top of the page, under the tab Best of TOL. Thanks for reading!
Here’s the thing– I’m pretty good at writing, but not so great at blogging. I mean, I can put my words into a blog post just fine, but when it comes to creating a slick place with cool clicky buttons and whatnot, I’m kind of just… duh. I mean, what’s a widget anyway? I picture a miniature Weeble.
But a whole bunch of you having been coming to visit lately, and I feel like a hostess who’s super excited to have guests show up but who feels the need to profusely apologize for not having any drinks to offer besides water or 1% milk.
You’ve come to see what I’ve got going on here, and the best I’ve been able to do is point you over here————————————————————————————–> to see meaningless monthly archives, a list of posts that changes largely on the whim of strange Google searchers, and a dropdown box of topics that escaped even my husband’s attentive notice until just yesterday. Water and 1% milk, I tell you.
So while I work on mustering more tech savvy, here are links to some of the best stuff I have to offer. I hope you enjoy it like a French pressed coffee or a strong margarita.
