looking nice and clean.


I like the new look and feel of your site! Great job!


Very, very nice job...what a great looking site! And thank you for such a great write up about my blog, Simon...yours is one of my favourite sites, as well.

Sometimes I walk away, after reading one of your posts, and think about it for hours, before I can come up with a comment for it. You're very enlightening!


Thank you all for your positive feedback - glad you like the new look! I've decided I like it too, though I'm not so sure about the typeface, so I may still tinker with that...

Marion - Thanks, too, for your encouragement! I too usually like to allow people's comments to simmer in my mind for a while before I respond. It often seems to take some time for the relevant thoughts - and the best words in which to express them - to surface.

I'm not sure how that fits in with 'living in the moment though! I'll have to, er, go and think about that one...

Its great to hear you're devising new ways to encourage readers to bolster positive thinking and living. I also like the sound of the Personal Development list sidebar.

well i have not seen the earlier one, so I can say how its an improvement but the present one is good. I also recently re did my blog. You can check it and let me know too. I have seen that having a menu bar helps in getting more readers, even for older posts. See if you can work something like that. I have done that to great adavantage.




Hi Liara - Thanks. Yes, I'm trying to make the site as accessible as possible to new readers - and to make people aware of some of the other blogs I like.

Welcome Vinni! - I checked out your blog. It looks great - and it's interesting that the menu bar is effective.


Hey Simon!

I really like the color scheme, the light blue is very serene and calming. Maybe my eyes are getting old (I am closing in on 40) but I liked the spacing between the lines on the "Bloggers Against Abuse" post.

The font was a tad big, but it allowed a bit more white space between each sentence. I'm nit-picking right now and I will read you no matter what you do with your line spacing, that's just a suggestion :)

p.s. I like the guide to popular posts! Good job!

Hi Cardiogirl - My eyes are older than yours and they're not too fond of this typeface either! I hope to tweak it shortly. It's a bit complicated, though, because with the bargain basement version of Typepad to which I subscribe, this typeface comes along with the color scheme - I don't have a choice. So if I want to change the typeface, I need to upgrade to a better version of Typepad. (Yes, I should really use WordPress, I guess, but I'm too lazy to work out how to use it...)

Many thanks for the feedback, CG! I'm glad you like the colors.

Some Favorite Quotes

  • "The majority of us lead quiet, unheralded lives as we pass through this world. There will most likely be no ticker-tape parades for us, no monuments created in our honor. But that does not lessen our possible impact, for there are scores of people waiting for someone like us to come along - people who will appreciate our compassion, our encouragement, who will need our unique talents. Someone who will live a happier life merely because we took the time to share what we had to give. Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. It is overwhelming to consider the numerous opportunities there are to make our love felt." - Leo Bascaglia
  • "Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm." - Sir Winston Churchill
  • "My life has been filled with terrible misfortunes, most of which never happened." - Michel de Montaigne
  • "Take any fear. Call it out. Actually make an appointment: I'll meet you face to face to get this settled once and for all at 'such-n-such' time. Tell it you'll even meet it in its own space: a dark room. And you'll find nothing will ever come to meet you..." - Sue Ann Edwards
  • "Your mind is the interference to experiencing the bliss of this moment." - Dr Joe Vitale
  • "A human being is part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. We experience ourselves, our thoughts and feelings as something separate from the rest. A kind of optical delusion of consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from the prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty. The true value of a human being is determined by the measure and the sense in which they have obtained liberation from the self. We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humanity is to survive." - Albert Einstein
