It's a sure sign that someone has an important piece of work with an impending deadline on the go when they start fiddling about with Blogger. I've been happily pottering with the following:
1. The new Blogger 'Popular Posts' feature, which shows the most read posts of the past week (on the sidebar to your right). It tends to display recent posts, as you'd expect, but it's good to see an occasional blast from the past rocketing senselessly up the chart.
2. The new views. The flipcard view, my favourite, is rather like meeting oneself unexpectedly in the corridor and being given too detailed a response to a polite 'how have you been?'
3. I've started replacing the blog list I mistakenly deleted a year ago. Your new post will now be available to me the joyful instant it is published. It'll also be much easier for me to click back in later to see what your sweet commentators have said and indeed undertake a second reading, the better to appreciate your more complex themes and delicate nuances, perhaps even spot a faint, initially overlooked foreshadowing of a planned repotting of your herbs.
