The Expansion Pack: Summer 2014

background-8.pngNow Playing At  A Blog Near You

Take a careful look at the page you’re on. If you’re a regular reader, you may have noticed some changes!

Background – I finally took advantage of Suburbia’s custom background. It’s a word cloud of my topics and categories. It took some work to color-match the background text with the site text, but I think it works.

cropped-head-logo-3.jpgLogo – Since I started blogging last year I’ve wanted a unique logo. I also needed one that didn’t infringe on copyright issues (sorry for the last year, UnderArmour). Five days of semi-intense brainstorming resulted in the logo you see now.

For the record, both were made using Tagul‘s word cloud generator and edited in Adobe Photoshop 9.

Address – Look carefully at the url in you address bar; especially if you’ve bookmarked this page or otherwise come here on autopilot. That’s right – you’re now reading this blog at!

If you scroll down to the bottom of the page you’ll notice some new widgets.

widget gearsOther Reading will take you to my recent likes on WordPress. Check them out and discover something new!

On The Bookshelf lists the books I’m currently reading. Of course, you can always follow me on Goodreads to see all my lists and reviews.

Life In Motion will show you my two recent Instagram photos. Follow me there if you don’t want to miss a moment!

There’s also been some changes to the sidebar:

A new search feature for the archives

Revised Images

Over the next few weeks I’ll be rolling out some bonus features and content!

Facebook: I already have a Facebook page, but right now it only publicizes my posts. This will change to provide more random thoughts and links to things I find interesting. Flash Fiction Fridays, anyone?

Twitter: If you already follow me on Twitter, note this change! I’ve set up a new Twitter specifically for my blog. I’m doing this for two reasons: (1) to separate my personal feed from my public feed and (2) to provide you with even more thought provoking ideas! See my thoughts in 140 characters or less (brevity is the soul of wit, after all). Of course, you can always follow both!

Tumblr: I’ve set up a Tumblr to share inspirational thoughts and pictures. Expect quotes from my current reading list!


Worried about clutter? Remember that this blog is not my business. At most I will only post something on these sites once (maybe twice) a day. In reality, it will probably only be a few times a week.

Coming Soon

Podcast: I’d like to produce a monthly (bimonthly?) podcast about various ideas. I plan to release a test podcast towards the end of July. Stay tuned for details!

Comments, concerns, or complaints about these changes? Let me know!
