Que pasa aqui?

Welcome to the new and improved gringa.org!

What started out as some minor changes to my knitting blog this weekend morphed into a complete overhaul of all things Gringa. Jason patiently coded features, imported entries, and somehow managed to not only understand what I wanted ("You know, separate entries that only show up on the Project list thingy but don't show up in the normal place.") but to actually implement it. Let there be no doubt about it: I am marrying an MT Superhero.

Here's what's new:

  1. The gringa.org blog and the knitting blog (La Gringa Tejedora) have been combined, and all archives from both blogs are now in one place. I wasn't really posting to the gringa.org blog anymore, but I wasn't quite ready to kill all of my archives (especially entries like these).
  2. Going to the old knitting blog URL will now redirect you here. Go on, try: http://www.gringa.org/knit. Back already, aren't you?
  3. The Projects Lists on the right side are automated now, which will make updating them much, much easier.
  4. Comments will be automatically closed on entries older than 60 days. And not a moment too soon, since I spent the better part of a morning last week dealing with a comment spamming attack that posted about one vile, disgusting comment per minute.
  5. It's pink!

Here's what's left to be done:

  1. Enter all projects onto the nifty new automated Projects List.
  2. Fix the myriad broken links and missing images.
  3. Fix the whatever-you-call-it so that people who were reading the knitting blog through an aggregator will be redirected to this site. (Obviously, given my not-so-profound understanding of this process, Jason will be doing this.)
  4. Update!

I luvs it. (Other than the pink, but that's just personal preference. I'm more into green and orange - hence why it's on MY blog and not yours. *grin*)

Hi Shannon. This is the first time I've been by since the remodeling! It looks great in here! Yeah. Oh, and Dizzy looks great in his poncho!
