The WordPress Dashboard tells me that this will be my 500th Mellowcat communication. It all started in October 2008, following the lead (once again) of The Letter. The first couple of posts were just notes to myself, but then I started to get the hang of it and branched out into the Important Information that Mellowcat readers value highly. Just so you don’t freak out, a couple of changes are in store; we are abandoning the all lower-case blog post titles in the post-500 era. I got into that habit under the influence of myurbanist, but I feel that I can revert back to the mixed-case convention now. And I might try a different WordPress template, if there’s one that will feature the cool appraising stare of the Mellowcat’s banner image in an equally effective way as seen in the original template. Other than that, you can anticipate more of the same.
