Hello World. It’s Me Again.

For the past 2 1/2 years I’ve been blogging over at http://michellen.vox.com.  I loved vox and it was a great place to get started.  But I want more out of my blog now so I’m moving over to here.  I hope I don’t lose any of my vox readers and I will continue to check back there and read and comment on their posts.  For the time being, I will either cross-post to both places or provide a link to my wordpress posts on vox.  I will most likely start moving all of my old posts over, but that will be a slow process and I don’t have the patience to do that first.

It may seem like I made this decision suddenly, but I’ve been debating it for quite some time and once I got started, I just decided to do it.

Anyway, this blog will focus on the books I read and my thoughts on them.  I will not commit to not ever discussing any other subjects, but I am going to try to keep this focused.  I’m looking forward for a refreshing new start and I hope you all enjoy reading it.

    Congrats on the new digs!

      I have no idea how to fix the rss feed. I’m not sure if it’s a wordpress or google reader problem.

      And Thanks!

    How’s Under the Banner of Heaven? I hear his books are really good, but I haven’t read any of them.

      It’s good. I’ve kind of been reading it for a long time, but it is interesting. He’s a good story-teller.

    Oh, pretty! I wonder if the shelfari widget works here. Have you tried adding your shelf? Vox never let me.

      I haven’t tried the shelfari widget yet. I’m still playing around with the sidebars. But I could never get it to work on vox either. So far, everything I’ve wanted to do, I’ve been able to do (some things did take a few tries though like I had to run my feed through feedburner because it wasn’t showing up in google reader). So far, I’m happy with wordpress. 🙂

    Nice blog! I added you to my blogroll. For your non-WordPress links in your blogroll, did you just add the links manually? I haven’t bothered to try that yet.

      Thanks. I actually manually added all of them. I have yet to discover your magic trick for adding wordpress blogs.

        If you are on a WordPress.com blog that you want to add to your blogroll, you just mouse over Blog Info on the grey bar at the top of the screen and click Add to Blogroll.
