Testing, 1-2-3, Testing…

WELCOME!  It’s great to be here and I’m happy you’ve made the journey over to Book, Line, and Sinker’s new domain.  I’m still shocked that I was actually able to make the conversion from WordPress.com to self-hosting all by myself!  (My husband has to pay up on our little wager–I didn’t outsource this project!)

I’m still fine-tuning the site and working on my header–I’m adding an image and a few other details.  After that, I have several books to review and many comments to leave on YOUR blogs–I’ve been a bad blogger–on vacation and spending too much time working on this new site. 

Drop me an email if you notice something amiss or malfunctioning.  Also, check out the ‘Bookmarked Blog’ tabs below the header and make sure I have your blog up there and that your link is working correctly.  If there’s a problem, I’ll have my people (ha!) get right on it.

                Well done! Congratulations on the solo migration (and may I say “whew!”). The new look is very clean but perhaps just a tad antiseptic. NAT interjects: I’m still working on the header–I have a few things to add! And I’m OCD and LOVE antiseptic. PS. Where the heck is my comment reply/nesting?!?! Have to go find it so I can stop hijacking posts.

                My blog isn’t a book blog per se, (and it’s teetering on the rim of defunction because I’ve been even more wayward than you), but my current read is All About H. Hatterr, by G.V. Desani. From the back cover:

                Wildly funny and wonderfully bizarre, All About H. Hatterr is one of the most perfectly eccentric and strangely absorbing works modern English has produced…

                Also with glowing blurbs from T.S. Eliot, Saul Bellow, and Salman Rushdie.

                p.s. Have successfully added the RSS to my feed reader, so B’linker is in like Flynn.

                          I have two different places to link to the feed–in the ‘Welcome Aboard’ box and in the header–bottom right, icon. They both seem to be working for me. Hope it’s working for you now. :)
