I'd just like to add one more thing that you accomplished in 2007 but omitted. You maintained an outstanding blog that many of us enjoy reading and learn from. I'm happy so many people are blogging and sharing experiences, and yours is top notch. I hope you keep it up in 2008 and I look forward to following your progress.

Happy New Year!

Impressive list. You accomplished a great deal, and probably did even more than you've listed here.

Happy New Year!

Happy new year to you both. Thank you so much for your kind words! I keep my blog for myself, but it feels quite good to know that it's interesting or helpful for others, too.

Sort of off-topic here, but how do you do the crossing things out thing? I can't figure it out but would love to be able to do it on my blog.

Danielle said...


It's pretty easy...just include a del and /del tag in between your li and /li, obviously being sure to include the carrot brackets.

An easy way to figure out how people do stuff is to click "view source" on the web page. If you can read enough code to figure out where something is on the page, you can cut and paste it into your own html.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help on doing the code. I just spent 30 minutes rewriting code on my blog to make some changes that have been bothering me. Learning to do this HTML stuff could be really useful. Now I need to figure out how you put the background picture on your title bar!
