Based on reader feedback, I made some changes to my blog. First, I took a scalpel to “Valerie” because some folks assumed that was my name. Henceforth, “Valerie and Her Week of Wonders” will simply be called, “Week of Wonders.”
(BTW, I like that the abbreviated name, “WoW,” gives a cheeky nod to Stephen Frears’ “Sammy and Rosie Get Laid,” a formative film for me. This reference should put a smile on your face if you know it.)
Next, I replaced my avatar, which was a still from the film, with my own (Warholized) image. As much as I would love to keep the photo of Valerie, with her bangs and her bird, it’s just not worth the confusion when people expect to see her, not me!
I created a Gmail account if you would like to email me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org
I went over my original posts and cleaned up some formatting, etc. I am figuring this blog thing out as I go along, and it’s still evolving.
Please keep reading and I’m always happy to hear your comments and suggestions!!!
