Year End

Hello blogosphere

I've been so neglectful of you lately! I'm sorry. But I wanted to write and tell you some things to come.

Author / web designer / marketing expert / publishing wizard Carrie Butler did a "Breaking it Down" episode where she evaluated my personal web presence (at my request) and offered some suggestions. It's located here. You should go have a look at it. Especially if you are trying to establish yourself online. If you're into it, have a look at all the others she's done as well.

So. To come.

In the next couple of weeks I'll find myself with a few days off work. During that time, I'm going to apply all the notes I took from Carrie's vid/rundown. I especially liked her idea of a central theme... Makes me think brand. This would be helpful since so many of my websites look nothing alike.

It's also entirely on me right now to move forward with Mr. Jason Tasi's debut art book and get it published as soon as possible.

Unfortunately, my desktop's monitor went out.

I've learned the hard way that it simply held too much power over my life. Its death left a glaring hole in productivity. There was a time when my productivity loss meant nothing to anyone but me. It's not that way anymore. Tasi's art book, to be produced and published by Sky Island Publishing, is literally at a stand-still. I hate this for him. He wanted the book out in time for Christmas and I did, too.

Stick around. I'll try to update youse guys more frequently.

I hope you enjoy your Christmas, Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Pancha Ganapati, Yuletide, Newtonmas (Grav-mass), New Year, and every other holiday you celebrate!

Stay safe

  1. Carrie does a great job, doesn't she? It took me a couple days to apply everything she mentioned in her video about my site.
    Merry Christmas, David!

  3. I will for sure check out the link. I know what it is like to face set backs, but it is like we in this community always say, "It is a marathon not a sprint." As long as we keep running we will get there.
