The end of an era

I finally had the guts to post the message that I have been meaning to post for quite some time..., a fundamental chapter in my so-called "online life", is at the end of the line. The domain name registration is up on the 15th; however, for the purpose of having the time to transition links, I will renew the domain for one more year while I sort through the content. I wrote up a quick summary of my feelings here, too. 12 years is a very long time, but I think this was the right ... Continue Reading

New domains registered, projects to come

Oh, hey, it's April. I'm still alive and the facade of looks a little different because I was sick of staring blankly at the old layout. But HEY! You know what's even more exciting?

Countless brands in the B2C (business-to-consumer) realm have noticed the overwhelming popularity of Pinterest that blossomed in such a short time period ... Continue Reading

Freebie Friday: iPhone and Android Apps

The first of, hopefully many, Freebie Fridays! (I bet the title isn't completely original, but so what.) Smart phones: who doesn't love them? Actually, the better question might be, with the increasing number of promotions for smart phones, who doesn't have them nowadays? They can literally be a life saver, if you ask anyone who has been lost driving around in a strange town. It takes nothing more than a quick Google search to find some Google Maps and bring you to safety - after pulling ... Continue Reading
