Patience, friends, we’re trying some themes for ye olde personal blog. Please don’t mind the mess. I’m tempted to go with the Mercury theme, which I’ve placed on two of our Brazilian sites.
If I install a theme like Mercury which allows status posts, I may post more than usual, so you might revise your email subscriptions to the site. I believe there’s an option to get a daily site update, rather than an immediate email for each individual post.
