Best Background Ever . . . and my Twitter Handle

First of all, if you look to the right, you can find a "Follow @_DanielGoldberg Twitter" button that I added to the blog. I don't post a lot of stuff on Twitter, but when I do, it's pretty awesome. For example, here's a Tweet I sent out during the football games last Sunday:

"Watching a rerun of the 2011 and 2012 MN book awards #BestNightEver #WhoNeedsFootball #Channel2Rocks #lotsofhashtags #StillHaveSpaceForMore"

So . . . yeah. I'm pretty fun to follow.

Anywho, you may have also noticed the background image for my site is new. It used to be just black, and now it's that crazy lightning picture I took down in Tucson. I've tried to change the background a few times before, but when I loaded my own image into blogger, it just did that stupid looking tile thing, and I wanted the pic to take up the whole background. 

(This was the original picture I used for the background of the site, although I've cropped it a bit.)

I figured out how to do that from this blog. It's pretty easy, if you have a blog and want to do something similar, I suggest giving it a try. It helps to have an image that's about 200kb in size, so you may need to resize your image. I did that using Photoshop, but I think there's a way to do it with paint, too. 

That's all for now. I'm currently working on a SF story. Normally my short stories are slightly bizarre fantasy, but I thought of an interesting plot set in the not too distant future, and I'm having some fun with it. 

Hope you're having fun creating something new!
