More Changes To My Blog

Friends, thanks for all your positive feedback on the new look of my blog. I really loved Mr T-Bone Beasley's suggestion on adding the scent to the blog. Some blogs have music. If someone could invent a scent for blogs, it would be very popular among dog blogs!

Now that I'm on the roll, I decided to make more changes to my blog. I discovered that Blogger has recently released a new page element called Blog List. The Blog List improves on the Link List page element by using blogs’ RSS and Atom feeds to show update times, post titles, and snippets. Isn't that cool? I opted to arrange my blog list with the latest update on top. Now, with 1 quick glance, I can click on the latest updates by my paw pals. Of course, it does take up more space compared to the Link List. But then, now that my blog is 3-columns, I can afford to do that.

I would also like to share with you the "before" picture which I used for my new header. Dad painstakingly cropped my picture out so I can use it on my blog header. He is a sweetheart!

P.S. The reason my tongue was sticking out was because we had just completed a very long walk on the hill. It was a gorgeous day for an outing.

Hi, Kess-
We're so happy to meet you. The first dog in my life was a beagle/blue-tick hound mix, and you look a lot like him! Your blog is absolutely lovely, and we look forward to visiting often. Maybe someday we'll get to see you in Malaysia, too: I've wanted to visit ever since I had a classmate in college from your country. It sounds very beautiful.

Greetings! Isn't the bloglist cool? We have one on our page too and have it sorted by most recent entry. Very useful. You look like could use a cool bowl of water or some ice cubes. I get ice cubes from Starbucks!

Hi Agatha & Archie, Tell PL2 there is a Sort function in Bloglist. Just choose "Most recently updated"

Snout beagle, Glad you've found some time to visit me. Looking forward to M&D's exploits. No more squirrels, Marvin!
