long story short: i lost my domain name. :(
so--the new domain name for this blog is www.the-ella-echo.com. this change means that many links are now broken. as i find them, i'll fix them, and i'd appreciate it if you'd let me know if you find a broken link here or anywhere else online.
and it would be a great help if you'd spread the word about the new URL!
as i said to a friend, i'm trying not to be upset about it--after all, no bombs were dropped, nobody's baby died, and this is not going to affect the stock market in any way, so it's really going to be ok.
thank you for your patience and your support, and happy reading!
