Hello from Austin Eavesdropper’s brand new blogging home!  I am terribly thrilled you’re here, Reader.

Things look pretty different from our old home, huh?  All the credit in the world goes to my designer Amanda Johnson and her intrepid coder/programmer girls at Freckled Nest, the design company I’ve used twice now.  I seriously can’t say enough good things about them.

We’re still getting our sea legs on this new site, but in the meantime, have a look around!  We’ve got several cool new additions:

FEATURED POSTS // Those would be directly to your right, adjacent to this post.  There will be three “featured posts” at all times, and to read their title, just hover over the circle.

CATEGORIES PAGE // Want to read about just the music we’ve been digging, or just watch some AETV?  Visit the categories page, and hover over the pretty circles.  We’re still populating each category so bear with us, but we’re almost there.

NEW ABOUT + FAQ // I had fun writing this.  Any other questions you have?  Feel free to ask them in the comments section, below.

COMMENTS // Speaking of which, are you wondering what those big fat numbers are to the bottom right of each post?  That’s our new comment section.  Click the number to say hi, leave a note, join the chatter.

I’m so excited for a clean, fresh look and tone for Austin Eavesdropper.  There are certain things that were really hard to say goodbye to during the transition (which I’m sure I’ll go more in-depth into in another post), but overall, I feel exhilarated.  I’ve always wanted Austin Eavesdropper to be a place where I could write, reflect on my experiences, study other people, and collect intriguing art/images/music.  This new home feels … less cluttered?  More open?  Like a gal can stretch out and breathe here.  I think I’m gonna like it.

And I hope you do, too.
