Getting the New Look of This Site Together

New Look Coming

Not much tonight other than I have been really getting some great help and some good discussion over the last few days about this site. And ways to clear the clutter and get it better focused and functioning.

So not only will I be hitting the writing hard starting next week, but will be making changes here. And doing more writing blogs because I’m learning a lot this week.

So nothing tonight. Too late and I have to be up too early to say anything sane. (grin)

But fun stuff getting planned.
