We designers make out like a website’s design is extremely crucial to the success of a site. However, someone forgot to tell that to Seth Godin and Steve Pavlina. These guys have two of the most popular and plain jane blogs on the net. It makes me wonder…maybe we just like design because it’s fun and interesting.
Caught this little guy in my backyard after noticing the cat food was disappearing(no, the cat didn’t eat it). The same week, we caught two coons, and one opossum.
Let me say, that I still know quite a few men who wear a mustache well. Most of them are old enough to be my father. You rarely see a younger man that can wear and actually ‘pull off’ the mustache these days. Wesley Morris of Boston.com writes a great article, The Sad and Curious Exile of the American Mustache, explaining how and why the once mighty mustache has become a comedic prop…..great read…..Since then, The Art of Manliness have listed the manliest mustache’s of all time.
It’s been over a month since I posted, so what have I been up to? Well, a lot, actually. From a web perspective, I’ve been working on my BANS stores, and am having a really good month….my best since eBay started the eBay partner network for affiliates. I’ve also been on my second week of vacation this month – this past week. While off work, I’ve been working on a site for my church, which is being built on WordPress. Aside from the web, I spent one week on vacation in Florida, and have spent a lot of time doing yard work, breaking in my new(to me) riding lawn mower.
It appears Technorati decided to remove me from their top 100 popular blogs list. I’ve been expecting this ever since I first realized I had made the list. I only made the list because of the thousands of incoming links I have – from the many blogs that are using a WordPress design that I authored. I made it all the way up to #38, and I’ve noticed today that I’m no longer there. It doesn’t really matter, although I did receive around 10-15 visits per day from being on that list.
Since Technorati has become pretty useless, now I don’t have much reason to pull up their site.
