A quick update

November 19, 2008 | 15 comments

Just a reminder that I’ll be hosting 7 Quick Takes Friday again this week. I loved loved loved reading all the posts from last week! If you haven’t had a chance to click through and read other bloggers’ 7 Quick Takes, you really should (go to this post and scroll down for the list). I was surprised at how many fun / funny / interesting little gems I came across, and each post doesn’t take long at all to read.

Also, I finally added a profile picture. Unlike you fancy WordPress people I can’t create a separate “About Me” page, so there it is, on the left sidebar. I always enjoy knowing what other bloggers look like, so I thought I’d go ahead and post a picture of myself as well.

Have a great evening, and thanks for all the fascinating comments from the Saint Diet post — follow-up coming soon.

    my blot is through blogspot too and i made an about me page by just typing up a regular post and “burying it” (back dating it) then linking to it on my nav bar.

    love having the picture though. i like to see people.

    I love the picture. You have a beautiful smile.

  3. Leticia

    Jen, congratulations on your wonderful blog being mentioned in “Faith and Family” magazine.
    You always inspire me when I come here. Well done!

  4. Christine

    Thank you for sharing your picture. I really imagined you as a much older women. Only because your writing is done so well. You look so radiant and young!

  5. Teresa

    I can’t remember how I found your blog, but I’m thankful everyday that I did ! You are a wonderful witness for Christ.

    I’m usually lousy at guessing what people look like, but I got it right on with you!! Great picture!

  7. el-e-e

    Oh, yay! I’m glad you posted that pretty photo. 🙂

    Thanks for the pic. I always pictured you with really dark brown hair, bangs and Tina Fey/Sarah Palin glasses. I am really enjoying your blog and LOVED your post about making your life physically conducive to holiness. Have you ever read The Intellectual Life by Sertillanges or Prayer Primer by Fr. Dubay or Mother’s Rule of Life by Holly Pierlot? All of those books have been instrumental in helping me build my days around my relationship with Christ and desire for holiness. If you’ve read them I’d love to hear what you think.

    What a nice picture jenn! You look great. have a lovely day.

  11. Katie

    Interestingly, you look an awful lot like I had imagined you did!

  12. Therese

    Nice photo Jen. It is great to know what other bloggers look like.

  13. Kelly @ Love Well

    I stopped by earlier today and saw your picture and thought, “Huh! Nice picture! I wonder how I’ve missed Jennifer’s head before!”

    I’m glad to know I’m not just losing my mind. I’m only losing my ability to be observant.

    You’re so pretty.

    I did a mini-quick takes today. Hmm, maybe next week I’ll get one up.

  15. Sarah Reinhard

    I really enjoy the quick takes too, Jen, and I also enjoyed going through all the links (I made it through some of them, anyway). Thanks for taking this one (you know, in your spare time). 🙂

    And can’t you do a back-dated post, and then link to it, as a sort of “fake” about page? (I think that’s one of the little tricks I’ve picked up along the way…but you’re the html guru so I’m probably being silly here).

    You are quite lovely…it’s great to have a face to go with the “voice” of the blogging wisdom. 🙂
