I hope you are enjoying our Blog Window widget,
especially its new web 2.0 look. If you have any questions or concerns about
the widget, I will be happy to address them -- please post your question as a response
to this post.
I would like to inform you of a few new and exciting changes that
are already live or about to become live.
The new Blog Window widget will automatically appear on your site
When we introduced the new Blog Window look a couple of weeks ago, we have
not automatically changed the look of the Blog Window widgets you have
already placed on your sites. Because of the enthusiastic response that
we have received for the new widget look, we will be updating all Blog Window widget installations to automatically pick up the new widget look.
In the unlikely case if you notice that dimensions of the Blog Window widget look inappropriate for your site
once the widget has updated, please visit the Blog Window Registration Page,
edit your widget to match your site.
You will see these changes on your site over the next couple of days.
You will also notice the new space at the bottom of the widget that contains a link
to our site. I will post another update as to what exciting plans we have
for that space.

the future if you wish to not display the widget.

To see your monthly analytics, visit the
Blog Window Registration Page, edit your widget and select the Analytics
tab. You will see the brand new Monthly section.
You will also be receiving these monthly analytics by a separate email notification
on the first

from monthly and/or daily analytics reports separately.
This monthly analytics reporting is now active.
