January 2006 update

Hi everybody! Happy 2006! I'm all caught up on emailed submissions. Now I can start in on my ever-growing pile of bookmarks to add. Thanks for the enthusiam and the wonderful projects. I hit 200 books a while back, and there are 84 contributors. All in 6 months!

So, seems like a good time to do some housekeeping. If you have suggestions on how Crafting Japanese can be better and more useful, please email me or leave a comment. For example, I had a great suggestion a little while back about making some sort of web ring or something to facilitate visiting all the contributor sites. Also, now would be a good time to complain. Thumbnails too small? Can't tell which things are new each time I update a post? My mega-updates slowing down your RSS feed reader? Category missing? Let me know.

Finally, I'm changing the way I handle Flickr submissions. If you've made a project and have the picture on Flickr, nothing changes. I'm still linking directly to it and posting a thumbnail and attribution. I will no longer be linking to individual book pages posted on Flickr, though. There are so many, it's just overwhelming me. And it takes forever to make the links to each one individually. So, instead I'm linking to the ISBN tag for each book. Then all the pictures are in one place and I only have to make one link that updates automatically. For your pics to appear, please tag each one with isbn1234567890 or just 1234567890 (where 1234567890 = the actual ISBN number). As I update pages, I'm adding the Flickr links. There are a bunch of them up already. Thank you to the people already tagging!

Happy crafting!
