I recently had a request to add a gadget to the blog, so I added two. You can now follow SewWest by email and also translate me to your language of choice. The gadgets can be found in the column on the right hand side. Thanks for the suggestion, Nancy!
In other news, I recently added Blogger to my phone. I'm thinking about adding mobile posts, which I am envisioning as short, informal communications. Still working on it at this point. Has anyone tried mobile blogging? Any comments, hints, or suggestions?
