Over the next couple of days I'm going to be making a few changes to The Hand Mirror, to hopefully spruce things up a bit, update the blogroll, and generally do some housework I've been putting off for ages (just like home then!).
Hopefully I won't stuff anything up, or if I do I'll be able to fix it quick smart. If something isn't working the way you'd hope do feel free to email and let me know (link in my profile).
(Possibly starting out by striking through everything in the blog by failing to close brackets properly is a bad sign!)
Update at 11.53am Sunday - NZ Women portion of Blogroll has been updated and converted to a feedy thing that shows the most recent post and date of last update. There were a few blogs whose feeds I couldn't get to work, so they may have updated more recently then listed (or it may have no update listed at all). If your blog is wrong, or isn't listed, please let me know and hopefully between us we can work out how to get it working.
Update at 1.07pm Sunday - Have now finished tweaking the side-bar. The pictures all now link to a category. Next big job is a layout tweak, but that'll probably happen tomorrow. Sorry if things have been a bit funny, hopefully I'll be able to do the remainder in Preview mode instead of needing to do it live.
Update at 1.28pm Sunday - Ok because I am a saddo, and because the baby is still asleep, I made a start on the layout tweaks. Some of the changes I'm trying to make don't seem to be sticking, so I think it is time to walk away from the keyboard and enjoy the sun! Feedback/suggestions most welcome.
Updated completed, 11.53am Monday - Few things I couldn't get to work, so haven't changed, but here's the full list of changes/updates:
- Blogroll - added numerous new blogs (and removed a few defunct ones) to the Women's section (now title Other NZ Women in Blogland), converted that portion to most recent posts listing, checked and updated Other NZ Blogs, checked and updated Foreign Feminists.
- Tweaked colour scheme, front page presentation, and fonts
- New header, now with pic!
- Followers added to the sidebar, feel free to Follow us if you have a Blogger profile
- New pictures inserted in the sidebar, each linked to a category of our blog posts
- Updates to our About stuff - rejigged this section of the sidebar, updated comment policy, blogroll explanation, and The Kindness of Strangers
