Housekeeping

Today I’m taking a short break from the rhythm of my “regular” posts to give you a few short updates.

For one, I’ve added FeedBlitz and FeedBurner links over there to the right. I’m choosing to remain ignorant of the nuances of blog subscription arcana, but I hope that those of you who would fin this service useful take advantage of it.

For another, I made it to my one-year “blogoversary” earlier this month. And I’m enjoying writing for this outlet even more than when I started.

You continue to amaze me with the creativity of your comments. They usually make me smarter and always fuel me to keep posting here … so keep the good stuff coming!

Several of you have requested offline that I post more often. That’s difficult while I’m in the process of burying myself in paid writing work, but I’ll try to meet your requests by posting three times a week for a while.

In return, I ask that if you enjoy what you see here, spread the word about this site. Your referrals will make a difference; more traffic makes it easier for me to continue.

Oh yes, and you may have noticed my new avatar. I’d like to think it represents my demonic charm and devilish good looks, but it’s actually just an easily-identifiable image that I’ll enjoy using as my online face—for now.

Let me know what you think!

I like the avatar...it's cool, there is nothing wrong with a little change now and then.

Have a great weekend!

I'm glad you haven't grown tired of blogging here as it seems I just discovered this gem and look forward to reading your posts.

As far as your picture, I kind of liked the leather pants, myself. ;) Just kidding. Don't get all blushy, although as a devil you're supposed to be red in the face.

When your book on pop culture reaches Barnes & Noble be sure to let us know. :)

Shannon: Thanks, for some reason the devil just seems to fit.

OMW: I may bring back the black leather pants, don't give up hope yet! And I'll take you up on that request when the time comes.

Congrats on making it a year. Three times a week? Don't burn yourself out. ;)

You didn't ask for opinions on the avatar but since others are giving theirs.....

I lie the leather look also because it was 100% unique, but it didn't really stand out as vibrantly as the devil.

You have one of my favorite blogs,Congrats one one year and keep up the fantastic writing!

Congrats. And many more.

While I liked the Crow pic, I am digging the new avatar!!

Sound like I need to really consider bringing back my Crow costume. Or maybe you can all just visit here for Halloween and I can wear it again.

BV, Fuzz, Layla, Phred: Thanks, and if I do approach burnout, you'll be the first to know. Well, after me, of course ... but soon thereafter.

Thanks for being such an angel underneath your devil mask!

I'm really impressed when people can post 3 times a week. I wish I have the time and the talent.

Good luck, Mr Devil!

Happy Blogoversary. It's quite an accomplishment. Most blogs don't last a month. You should post as often as you feel comfortable with. If you can only get a post out once a week, than so be it. If you try to force yourself to post more, the quality may go down or you may feel like it's work.

Scarlett: Sometimes it's the opposite.

Missy, Fred: You'll have to be my quality control. Let me know if the posts make you smile, but also let me know if you think they are slipping!

Your new avatar look is pretty sweet. Good luck with posting more often. I can hardly keep up with my blogging sometimes!

Congratulations on the blogaversary. I like the new avatar, but unfortunately it makes me thing of Warrant because they have a close-up of a cartoon devil on the cover of their new album.

Keep on keeping on!

The Devil suits you just fine.

I think you're just a handsome devil, David! Yay for 3 posts a week!!

Happy 1-year blogoversay, Mr Amulet. Here's to many more fantastic posts to come.

Congrats on your one year! I don't what got my attention more the demonic charm or the devilish good looks.

As I've said before, on many blogs, everyone seems to be celebrating their one-year blogiversary.

Was there something in the water last year that spurred people to begin blogging at the same time?!

It's always a good sign when you are in popular demand.

Congrats on the one year. I'm here to tell you it only gets more complicated from here:)

Good stuff Mr Amulet and I like the new Avatar. You are handsome

 
At July 23, 2006 4:17 PM, Blogger David Amulet replied to my musings ...

Grafs: I'm feeling a burst of creative energy!

Jamie: I guess the devil stays, at least for now. Thanks for your thoughts.

Mark: I hope that Warrant's devil doesn't look like this one. Kind of ironic that the band has a devil cartoon on its album cover when one of the group's biggest hits was the ballad "Heaven."

GG: I'm glad you're eager for the more frequent posts. Visit early and visit often!

Erika, Gyrobo, Janet: It's good to see you here, I appreciate it.

Ben: That means a lot coming from someone using the macho Nigel Tufnel of Spinal Tap as his avatar!

Congratulations on your one year!
I had mine on 6/29.

Your avatar is very identifying!
;)

Gyro ~ yes, I think there must be something in the water!

Happy Blogaversary! Keep up the good work.

I'll always think of you as the Michael Jackson lookalike from your previous avatar! :P

 
At July 24, 2006 7:15 AM, Blogger David Amulet replied to my musings ...

Jay: While I can't say that I came up with the face directly from your tattoo, perhaps your inspired me with psychic powers.

GF: You have some tough competition here in terms of clever comments, but we're glad you're joining the fray.

Lee Ann: Congrats to you, too!

CB: I'm still surprised that a few people thought that Eric Draven from The Crow looked like Michael Jackson. I truly never saw it that way ... and it makes me fear showing it again!
