Postscript: April 2013

April 30, 2013 Postscript: Monthly Recap 1

I’m sure most of you saw the announcement of our move from wordpress.com to wordpress.org. Let’s see…besides a new host, did you notice any changes? I won a layout and the UBB plugin from Ashley over at Nose Graze. The giveaway was part of her blogversary and I installed the plugin a few days ago and our review index changed. I also tweaked the layout she made and with Lauren’s help, I played with color combinations and designed a new header. Let us know what you think! If you’re a book blogger, do check out Ashley’s UBB plugin.

Here’s a recap of what you may have missed on Literary, etc during April.
