So how’s it going DGLM blog readers? We wanted to take the opportunity now that we’ve had time to settle in to find out how you feel about the changes we made here.

We’ve all been thrilled with the feedback we’re getting and how active you guys are. Finding time to work on this without taking time away from our clients has been a challenge–I’m writing this on the subway en route to the office, for example–but we’re having fun being part of the discussion with you.

So how do you feel about the redesign? We’re blogging much more than we used to, but are there areas we’re still not covering (or covering enough) that you’d like us to consider? What are you liking most? Least? The title contest and Slush Week were both a lot of fun for us, and we’d love to do more contests and series–what do you think? Is there a helpful button or widget you wish you could find in our sidebar? We’ve gotten great suggestions from you guys, like Slush Week and the I Wish I Saw More… sidebar, so please keep ’em coming. (In the comments below, but also in the comments at any time! We’re always interested to hear what you think.)

You can see the blogs that we’re reading to the right–we’d love more suggestions! In particular, I’d love to read a blog by someone who works in sub rights. Anyone know of one?

Speaking of which, who are you? Unpublished authors, published authors, editors, agents, publishing professionals, tax attorneys who simply love our sparkling wit? Let us know below, anonymously or otherwise.

Some housekeeping as well. We stopped doing questions corner because we weren’t really getting many questions emailed, but we’re reading the questions you ask in the comments and try to cover the bigger ones in separate blog posts. If you’re missing that feature, try clicking the advice tag in the cloud at bottom.

Speaking of the tag cloud, I may have gotten a little overambitious early on with the tagging and created a ton of tags that aren’t very useful, so I’ll be cleaning that up a bit.

And for our fellow Blogger bloggers, are there any handy widgets or tricks we should know about? You guys were very helpful in resolving our color issues some time back. If anyone has any tips on embedding video in particular, that’d be great. We’ve had sizing issues, fought with the HTML forever, and then given up when it was still not quite right.

Most of all, thanks to everyone reading! Thanks to the linkers and retweeters and Facebook sharers who’ve helped us find others. Thanks for actively participating in the discussions, letting us know what you think, and helping us improve. Thanks also to those of you who read but don’t comment–we hope to hear from you, too! It’s a genuine pleasure talking with all of you.

And now the train’s pulling into 14th Street, so it’s time for me to go!
