Quick Housekeeping Notes

I’ve got a few announcements today. I’ve spent the last week or so doing some cleanup and maintenance on the blog, with a few changes you may notice.

Reading Lists

Due to the popularity of our List-O-Rama posts, I’ve started compiling some “best-of” type reading lists that you can find in the navigation bar. I have several more I’m going to put together, and I’m happy to consider your requests. My pet project is the “Sex Positive YA” list, which is way too small for my liking. 

Review Policy

I continue to tweak the CEFS review policy, as we are getting more and more requests for reviews these days. I am considering requiring that requesters fill out a form in order for their request to be considered. I’d love to hear if any of you have had success with that type of requirement. 

This phone booth is in Middle of Nowhere, Oregon—very near where I grew up.

This is one of those annoying riveting posts where I let you know that I’ve been doing some major maintenance on our commenting system.

Major. Maintenance. 

So, instead of our old, basic system I’ve added Disqus, which has all sorts of interactive features—and you’ll be able to tell if a comment is from Laura, Sandra or myself (and, starting in June, our new contributor, Rebeca) and associate your comment with a URL, Twitter, Facebook, OpenID (I still don’t really know what that’s for) or Google account. You’ll still be able to comment anonymously, of course. Also, you can “like” comments and reply to people, which has been happening already, but this way it’ll be way more organized and easy-to-use. And… tweets that link to our post will show below the comments, which makes me super-happy, because it’s helping me find more people to follow on Twitter—I think this is super cool!
