Hullo again. Did you miss me?

Well, that went quite amazingly smoothly.

Everything appears tickety-boo at this end, but you may notice a couple of things.

Firstly, old entries can no longer be commented on. Part and parcel of the upgrade, I'm afraid.

The counterpoint and good news to this, of course, is that you should now find it much easier to leave comments on the blog. And if you've been as frustrated as I have about that, it'll be a real improvement.

The other thing is that you now need to register in order to leave a comment. It shouldn't take more than a couple of minutes, and will register you across all of the BBC's other blogs as well.

    Why isn't there an opportunity for people to give their opinions/suggestions about the website.
    I know I am not alone in finding the 'new look' website a total mess.
    I feel the crayons and pencils 'weapon' idea gives totally the wrong impression - more like something for college freshers than writers who are serious about wanting to write for a profession.
    The layout feels childish and is overly complicated.
    It is very difficult to find ANYTHING anymore.
    It would be nice if the site were simple and transparent. Stating simply and clearly what a writer can and can't expect from the Writersroom and the BBC in general.
    I speak for many of my friends who also feel frustrated with the new site design.
    Please streamline asap. Clear all the clutter and over-use of icons. Clarity PLEASE?
    And get rid of those crayons...

    Many thanks - in advance : )
