Name change.

Hi everybody.

It appears that "That Austin Girl" is having a Prince moment. A few weeks ago, I posted about wanting to do more interviews with weird/cool Austin individuals, and thought about launching a whole new blog for it. Well, for any of you with your own blogs out there, you know that blogs are like children: they require a lot of pampering and attention. Also, this new blog I want to start will perhaps involve a non-girl contributor, that being R.

So, like the jobless-yet-affable friend that needs to crash on your couch for "just a night or two" and ends up becoming your roommate indefinitely, Austin Eavesdropper is just going to move on into this current space. Buh-bye, That Austin Girl!

Anyway, the content won't dramatically change. Neither will the link. In fact, you are reading Austin Eavesdropper right now.

As for the new banner - dear God, I can't design banners to save my life! Can anyone tell me how to resize it so it's bigger? I designed the old "that austin girl" banner a while back, and now I completely forgot how I did it. Damn long-term memory.

Lastly - before we go any further, I have to credit the photograph above to Joni Karanka, a photographer I randomly discovered on Flickr and am currently obsessed with. Here's a sampling:


EDITOR's NOTE: I figured out the banner!!!! So, nevermind about that.

EDITOR's NOTE, part 2: If we're "blogger friends" (aww) and link to each other through blogrolls, you might want to update the name of this blog. Or don't. You're the boss of you!

Congrats on the new direction!

I think i'm old with bad eyesight so take with a grain of salt: the new font is really hard to read.

Although I am sad to see that austin girl go, I am welcoming the change. I might have to agree with Ashley though, I think like a bit larger of a font might do my eyes some good.

Cool new name, TollyM!

On my computer, Firefox makes both font and photos larger if you use either Ctrl + or hold Ctrl and roll the wheel.
