My new blog is up and running

I've decided to start a news blog about ebooks. Most of the news stories I find and write will be posted on the blog, not MR. Please check it out; I need the site traffic. I'd also really appreciate it if everyone who uses RSS feeds would add my blog to their reader.

I have 4 or 5 original stories that I'm working on, and I haven't quite decided whether I'm going to post them here or there.. Suggestions?

I'll stick it in my feeds for reading.

One word of advice though. Ditch the theme, there are a billion or so Kubrick wordpress sites and it does turn off new readers. If nothing else make a custom header image or grab another decent looking theme. I played around with Tarski for a while which is a beautifully elegant theme, might be worth a look.

I'm going to change the theme as soon as I find a good replacement, yes. But the default is good enough for now.

Looks good Nate, but you might think of using categories. They would help a reader find subjects they want to look over.
