Some New Paint On The Walls

I’ve lived in my home for just over 2 years now.  We’ve officially painted 2 rooms, the bedroom and the office.  AmoebaMike has existed 11 months and I’ve just changed my WordPress theme.  Being hosted on WordPress.com is truly awesome.  Sure, there are lots of things I can’t do like install my own plugins or run JAVA applets, but I also don’t have to deal with paying for my own hosting or troubleshooting anything myself.  Wordpress is continually adding new features, and every few month or two, it seems, they roll out a new theme.  I really liked my previous theme and there a few things about this theme I’d like to change, but I’ve “repainted” the blog and am going to try this out for a little while.  …Or for a long while.

Besides changing the theme, I’ve added new ways to connect with me.  In the upper left, are cool Erlenmeyer flask buttons for AmoebaMike on Facebook, Twitter, my RSS stream, and a public email address.  If you want to email me, just be aware that the email address goes to a spam-catching box which provides an RSS feed, so I may not get it as fast as if you have my real email address.

If you want to connect with me (the author Michael, not the character AmoebaMike) the About page now has links to my Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Flickr, and Last.fm profiles.

Finally, I’ve added RSS feeds to other great sources in the sidebars: Dr Carin Bondar, Joanne Manaster, Dr Stephanie Chasteen, the Scientopia network, NY Times Science, and Discover Magazine.

As always, I’d love your feedback on any or all of the changes.
