I am a serious over thinker. I can't tell you how much time I sit and fidget with my blog trying to think of ways to make it more user friendly. Lately I have been pondering those vintage images that I love to share a whole lot. I love how they are in albums now compared to how they were on the old blog, just mixed in all over the place. The problem is, the right sidebar where the links to the albums were seemed to be loading really slowly. I decided to move them to their own page so that the album links could be moved off of the sidebar on the main part of the blog. I tinkered and designed and experimented and finally ended up with a page that I felt was a nice home for the images.
If you visit my blog just for the images, you will be happy to know that you can find them all here: http://tammytutterow.typepad.com/vintage_papergoods/ . You can add that address to your favorite feed reader and just get updates on new additions to the albums. I have added a handy link to the page in my top menu and a clickable graphic on the right sidebar.
If you like to visit to check out the images and my artsy craftsy stuff, you can still get all of that here on the home page. Nothing is changing except for moving the album links and rearranging a few things on the sidebars. I will still post updates to the albums here.
In the end, after all of the work setting up the new page and moving the album links, I would love to report that the right sidebar is loading at a lightning fast speed. . . it is faster, but still not as fast as the left. Maybe it is a Typepad thing, I don't know. I guess I will have to get used to it and stop pondering it so much!
