The coup d’etat of my website: The Now Reading widget is now working! I’d love to claim credit for it, but Edgar the code samurai was able to slice and dice php code where I was all mush and gush. Again, this place looks lovely all due to Monsieur Edgar, thank you!
So, what do I have to look forward to? The most scrumptious, lovely time waster ever existed. Move over librarything.com, I’ve got my OWN library now! I can enter every book I’ve ever read WHEN I read it, how LONG it took to read it, rate it, review it, TAG IT, and it link it to Amazon if people are interested in buying it. Whoah. Procrastination tool extraordinarre!
I can’t even begin to drool over the hours of beautiful organization I’ll waste on this. When I was a kid, around 9 or 10, I had a little index box full of index cards where I rated and wrote about every book and movie I saw. My mom made fun of me for it, so I stopped. 🙁 Story for therapy I know, but now I have my personal online index box for books, and I’m recovering the little part of me that died inside. Take THAT Mom!
I’m thinking of jettisoning the rest of the site and just have the root address be this blog because I’m that in love with how pretty it is. Now all I need is a WordPress plugin for a photo gallery, EZ sauce, and the site will be done.
Check one off my to-do list. Now, 300 left to go!
