The big news from google this week (aside from the Earth Day quiz, through which I found out my spirit animal is a giant squid. What a fool I feel – I’d always thought it was a penguin), was that they would cease pushing sites that weren’t optimised for mobile viewing.  No surprise there from the google pundits. Some surprise from this humble bloggist.

What’s a good internet citizen to do? Update her blog, that’s what.

Thus, I bring you @thejewellist 2.0. It was about time, really, after 5.5 years on the default 2009 WordPress theme (albeit with a couple of hard-won tweaks.) So now I’ve brought us all the way up to 2013. Baby steps.

What am I saying? Well, for those of y’all who visit the site at its address (rather than have content scraped and sent to you via an RSS feed or email) you will notice a few little changes. Right at the minute the big one is the shemozzle that is the Monthly Deadlines Calendar tab (nope, I’m not even going to link to it…) Suffice to say, I’m working on it.*

Aside from that, there’s been a small modification to the header image. Yup, all go here…
