I feel like a bad person for neglecting the blog for so long. But I still have the excuse of no real internet connection. It’s a long story, but let’s just say that all of my bad feelings for the cable company are no longer there. The alternative is much worse, and I’m sick and tired of it. Anyway, a lot’s going on and I’m still buzzing. Here goes…
- One good thing about satellite TV is the DVR that came with the system. I have it set to record all my favorite shows. I never miss anything, and watch it on MY time.
- I’m planning on launching NathanRice.NET soon. It’ll be a central location where I can blog on techy stuff, primarily pertaining to WordPress and the themes I do. For those of you who have emailed and asked about ElegantBlue … yes, I will be releasing it as a free theme after NathanRice.NET launches.
- 2 notable redesigns have launched in the last few weeks. Darren at Problogger launched a great new design. Ben Bleikamp handled that one, and I have to say … it’s a home run. Also, John Chow had Nate Whitehill redesign his site as well. Nice one’s, guys!
- A dog is out of the question for me, unfortunately. The landlord called and said the owner of the house didn’t want dogs inside. Major bummer. I guess I’m in the market for a real estate agent in Anderson.
- My friend Brian released a new theme called “Revolution” (aff) and I wrote a review of it over at the Blog Herald. It’s pretty sweet, and if you’re in the market, it’s definitely worth checking out.
- For what it’s worth … today is my birthday. My paypal address is ncrice at gmail dot com … cash gifts are welcome In all honesty though, a “happy birthday” in the comments will make me happy too
- I am seriously looking forward to this Sunday. If even half the names on the wall end up coming, I think God is going to move at NewSpring like crazy!
- I got a chance to talk to some of the youth guys about PULSE too, and from what I’ve heard, those teenagers are going to be seriously challenged with the Gospel. Who knows what’s going to happen this Saturday!!!
- Friday’s are “Dog Whisperer” nights at my house. That show is in my top 5 favorites, for sure!
- Lee and Ken almost convinced me to try Twitter. I just can’t get on board with updating the world with my every move … nor do I care to know every move of my friends.
- I love this guy! It’s not an accident we became business partners. Cory, you are awesome to work with!
- We did some configuration on Perry’s blog recently. Turns out, he has over 2,100 subscribers to his feed. I don’t think he had any idea he had that many people reading his feed!
- Yes … I promise to get back in the blogging groove. I know I’ve asked before, but any interested guest bloggers are welcome to email me or leave a comment. You’d be doing us both a favor … especially if you have a site of your own that you want to promote. This site has over 500 unique visitors per day and over 100 subscribers and has a PageRank if 5.
- George, I promise that political blog is in the pipeline … I have a design concept, but it just needs some hammering out. I think with the elections coming up, a political blog could be really popular.
Ok, well that’s it for this week. Enjoy the weekend!!!
