I've been with Blogger for about two years, and there are a couple of things that I'd really like to see changed. First of all, I think an expandable rectangle for typing (and editing) posts would be an improvement. Presently, when you type a post you can only view a couple of inches of text. However, if you create a page, the rectangle is expandable, so hopefully this feature will be available soon for regular posts as well (please hurry, Blogger!). The second thing I'd like changed is that I'd like to be able to list my blogs in my Blogger profile. Because I changed the graphics of my title header, it eliminated the name of my primary blog in my profile, so had to I list this blog as my Webpage. (Update: I've changed my blog header again to include blogger text because I wanted to be able to list my blogs in my profile.) There really should be another way to be able to add your blog(s) to your Blogger profile. And wouldn't it be wonderful to be able to underline text without having to use HTML tags? There's an option to italicize text while composing posts, but not yet one to underline text.
On Monday I went to Barnes & Noble to get a book for my daughter, Pretty Little Liars by Sara Shepard. Visiting the bookstore is always fun, but I felt a sense of guilt when I left. At Barnes & Noble, I saw many of the books I've been meaning to read, staring me in the face. I spend too much time not reading. I feel disloyal to some of the authors I blogged about when I first started this blog, such as Alexander McCall Smith. It's hard for me to keep up with series of books now, or read sequels. I have the same problem as many other book bloggers: I keep acquiring new books--but not more time to read them! Ah, the plight of the book blogger!
Thanks to all of you who visited my daughter's new book blog for young adults, Chapters. She's off to a great start! On Friday, during the Book Blogger Hop, she beat me traffic-wise, surpassing triple digits! She also received awards from Gramma Ann from My Reading Corner and from Alissa from The Grammarian's Reviews. Thank you all for giving her such a warm welcome. I think her book blog will help her keep track of her reading and motivate her to read (and develop her writing skills).
Now's as good a time as any to post this beautiful song:
And a favorite quote from Dr. Seuss:
"The more you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
