Hey folks, I wanted to address two issues with you all.
1) After growing tired of the layout of the blog I chose a new theme. However, I notice that it’s loading rather slowly for me, and I wanted to check in and see if anyone else was having problems with it. I don’t know how many of my readers read me here vs. in a reader or feed, but if you are reading here and it’s slow for you, to the point of annoyance, please do let me know. I really enjoy this theme but if it’s going to make people less likely to visit my blog, I will pick a different one!
2) I wrote a post earlier and then made it private a couple hours later. I want to sincerely apologize for doing that, because that’s really not how I want to do things around here. What I forgot is that when I make emotionally-charged posts, I often feel too vulnerable with them up after some time has passed. In the future, I will try to remember to save such posts as drafts until I am really sure I want them public. I realize that any of you who have my blog added to a reader will have access to that post anyway. I ask for forgiveness and gentleness from all of you on that. I may even make it—or an edited version of it—public again at some point. But for now, know that I’m sorry for doing that.
