Double Wow!!

Wow #1! Did you see the VERY cool 2k8 "widget" (fancy techno word for "thing") on the sidebar just above my blog roll/Places to visit?

Each time you refresh this page, a different 2k8 book pops up! And, when you click on the book, you get whisked over to flapjacket and a bunch of info about the book and author. I could play with this all day.

How do people come up with this stuff? It's seriously mind boggling.

Wow #2! AND you should head over to the 2k8 blog. Today's the first day of our first book launch. So, go check out Liz Gallagher, who is now a PUBLISHED AUTHOR, and her brand spanking new book (which I've read and it's fantastic) THE OPPOSITE OF INVISIBLE. Woohoo Liz!!

Oh yeah, here's the link to the 2k8 blog.

Wow is right. I keep thinking, what's next? Every time something new or "mind-boggling" comes out, whether for the market or computers, I am wowed and then think that I got to expect it. But then I still never stop getting the "wow" moment.

Wow Wow - who's doing your website? I'd love to find out how to get a new picture every time your refresh the screen.

Hi Shari! I know what you mean; it's all very wild and exciting!

Hi Sandy! Someone at flapjacket built the widget. Do you see how I toss these terms around (like I know what I'm talking about)? :)

Just soes you know, the widget doesn't work with Firefox.

Nevermind, now it works. Didn't the first time. I swear.

I love widgets, probably too much. My current blog host doesn't let me add new widgets, and I dearly miss them, but it does save me time I would otherwise be spending finding, installing, and testing new ones.

Widgets? I don't even have a blogroll updated. And I have two magazine columns. That is sad. I must get off my rear and figure it out. Good reminder!

Just want to say what a great blog you got here!
I've been around for quite a lot of time, but finally decided to show my appreciation of your work!

Thumbs up, and keep it going!
