Changes to this blog

Thank you to the folks who commented and let me know that the direct-linked pages on my original template did not include the sidebar information found on my main page.

I have changed the template so that it includes all of my sidebar information, including my disclaimer, on every page.

This blog is a young one, as you can tell from the lack of archives, and will probably need more changes as I experiment with content and design. If you see any areas for improvement, please comment and let me know.

Though I was initially overwhelmed by the attention my post received, I am excited that so many people feel as passionately about the future of publishing as I do (even if they disagree with me). I hope we can continue the discussion.

    I have a question, non hoopla related. I know. shocking, lol. It’s actually about a book you have on your good reads shelf, titled You’re wearing that? By Deborah Tannen. Have you read it and does the information seem valuable? I am about to go to the bookstore and grab a bunch of stuff to read over the next couple weeks (just got out of deadline hell). This one seemed good, and there was a copy at my local borders.

      Yay! A non-hooplah question!

      I enjoyed You’re Wearing That? by Deborah Tannen. It covered some of the same ground as her first book, but really spoke to the meta-language that hides beneath conversations between women. She’s also a very entertaining non-fiction writer. Definitely pick it up. It will make you hear your mom differently.

    I picked it up today, thanks! I want to read it as my daughter (who is preteen age) is maturing, so is our relationship. I didn’t have the greatest relationship with my own mother, who is now deceased. I want to be the best mom I can, and love reading well written books with good info, on establishing and/or maintaining good relationships for moms/daughters.

    Thanks a lot, have a great thanksgiving~

      Glad to hear you picked it up. Let me know what you think. Another book about family communication that I highly recommend is How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish. I’ve read quite a few parenting books, and this one was my favorite by far. The advice is backed up by psychological research, but the authors are very practical with their tips. I checked it out of the library and loved it so much I bought it.
