Regular readers may have been wondering what’s been going on with Common Sense. My last post was a month ago, and that’s a long stretch, even for me.

As you can see, Common Sense has undergone a facelift. After 3 1/2 years, I felt it was time for a change. I hope you like it. Of course, being a writer and not a web designer I couldn’t have done this alone. Many thanks go out to my designer, Anna. Not only does she do great work, she’s very professional in every way. If you are thinking of a redesign for your own site, click on the “Design” link at the bottom of the side bar and contact her. You won’t regret it.

Other minor changes have been made here to make the site more user friendly and to put forth a cleaner look. You can find my blogroll on its own page. (see above in the header bar.) Likewise, links to important activist sites now appear on the “Act Now” page. (also in header bar above.) And my pet project, “Make Me A Millionaire Today” has it’s own page too. Additionally, all previous posts can still be accessed through the search feature or by perusing the archives. Comments are still accepted, read, and occasionally replied to.

Finally, the blog itself is now powered by WordPress instead of Blogger. I’ve been using WordPress over at Bring It On! for some time now and really enjoy its complex simplicity. It’s user-friendly in a way that Blogger never really was.

So that’s the skinny on why I’ve been away for so long. Now that Common Sense is back up and running, I’ll be posting again with more regularity. And as always, you can continue to read fine Ken Grandlund articles at Bring It On!

Thanks for your continued readership and participation on Common Sense.

Now, back to business.
