Lizard fans,

I have made a few changes around here and hope they are upgrades.  First up is a new Facebook presence where I post when the blog has been updated.  Some of you may prefer that to an RSS reader.  That can be found here: or in the page sidebar towards the bottom.

Next up, you probably noticed, the skin has been changed.  I thought the cartoonish Lizard Logo was a little amateurish and didn’t care much for the broad black border.  The new skin is minimalist and I hope easier on the eyes.  It also seems to perform better on my phone.  Google analytics notes that over a third of my users are on phones or tablets so it is a non-trivial concern.

Finally, there is a discussion forum.  I went with a free option.  I’ll look into upgrading to something that is less ugly if it gains traction.  Click “Discuss” on the  menu at the top or go direct to:

You can currently post with your WordPress login (create a new one from the sidebar) or as an unregistered guest.  I will disable guest posting if it becomes a SPAM magnet.

    btw nothing wrong with amateurish!

    You know, Noah’s Ark was built by amateurs, but Titanic by professionals 😉

    My goal is to be a low key amateur, who has a low ego, knows they are a small time investor, and therefore measures 8 times before cutting once. The minute I start thinking I am a big time investor, I start doing dumb things. So there is nothing wrong with being/looking amateurish. If someone thinks poorly of you because of your website design, despite the quality of content, then do you really want this person as a reader?

      heh. That’s funny DGI. I like to think I keep my ego in check. I made some real dumbo T.Rex moves when I was first learning options. Very humbling. I try to never forget and to never lead the readership down those paths. You certainly seem to have your own ego in check and I respect your conservative approach.
