Run! Run! Run!
I just got back from a great run! A couple miles to the end of our road. I ran/jogged the whole way. On the way back I ran about half of the time. I was not expecting to do so well. About 4 miles total. Not bad at all.
I worked on my new blog. I will be switching over to that one next week or so. I wanted all my stuff in the same place and a fresh start so that is what I'm doing.
Tip of the day: Learn to play an instrument
Thats all for the night,

I Can Play!
Well, not really but I have been going through some online lessons at night. Pressing down on the strings huts my fingers at the moment. It should become easier later on.
I worked on my poduction company site today. I'll post it when I get a little more on it. Updated some contact forms and little things here and there.
Tomorrow I'll work on getting more content on my sites.
Tip of the day: Don't let it pass by.

Me and my Dad finished our Amazing Race applications and tape. I sent it off this afternoon. Now we just wait and see. It would be very cool if we were picked to go on it. An experience of a lifetime.
So that is what I did for the first part of the morning. Also I added a page to a site and fixed the meta tags on all of them. Also worked a little on the publishing site. I started reading some e-books as well. I'll do the same for tomorrow.
I also got guitar strings so I'm going to attempt to tune it. Now my sister wants to buy a bass. I always told her we oculd start a band together. We'll see how that goes.
Tip of the day: Learn another language(Which I need to do)

Today me and my Dad worked on our amazing race applications. 13 pages! It took a couple of hours but now its done. Next we have to work on the video.
Tip of the day: Be honest
Well thats all for today,
Friday, January 06, 2006
I finished my personal site and worked on some links for other sites. I also started on a site for my publishing company, working on the logo. I also added some content to a website I just put up.
This weekend I'll research and implement ways to get traffic to my sites. I think this is the hardest thing of all the steps you need to take.
Tip of the Day: Play any kind of card game with your family.
Have a great night,

A Good Day
I worked on DavidGetchel.com today. Take a look, not finished yet but It's partly done.
Tomorrow I'll finish it and maybe start on my blog.
So I already broke a string on my guitar. Yup, that fast. I was trying to tune it up and I guess tightened it up a little too much. Well now I know. All I can do is laugh, start looking for new strings and learn from it.
Have a great night everyone!

A Pretty Good Start
My first real day back to work was good. I finished a niche site and started working on the hub for it. It's looking pretty good and hope to finish it tomorrow.
When we got back from our trip I had a nice little Christmas present waiting for me. I won a guitar signed by Motley Crue. I've been trying for a guitar for a while because I want to learn how to play and now I can. A minor problem is that it is a right handed one and I'm left handed. It will be a challenge to learn but I know I can do it.
Yesterday I ordered some pics, a strap and a cord to hook up to my computer. I'll update you guys when I make some progress.
Have a great night everyone!

I'm back, and it Stinks!
We got back from vacation to the Caribbean the other day. Nice 75-80 degree weather and we had an awesome time. It all worked out well. We took lots and lots of pictures and I might put a couple up. 18 family members came from 3 states and we had a blast.
Now back home its cold and raining. We all want to go back to the nice warm weather.
Happy New Year Everyone! Its going to be a great year.

Thunder and Lightning
Yup, a little thunder and lightning today. It did not last long though, kind of disappointing.
I'm pretty much finished with the niche site and am now looking for the right domain name. The niche site will be a sub-domain, so I can have multiple sites under a common domain name related to the larger topic.
Tomorrow, I'll try and register a domain for it, possibly getting the site up live. We'll see how the day goes since I'm going to start packing for the trip.
One thing I forgot to mention, a couple days ago marked the one month mark for leaving my other job. I can't believe it has only been a month! I have learned a lot in this past month. I've done stuff I've never done before and will keep and use that knowledge. I have not made money, yet! But this niche site and some other ideas hopefully will start bringing it in.
Have a great night everyone!

I forget stuff all the time. Like just a little while ago. I was going to do something but now I have no idea what it is. I always say, if I forgot, it must not be that important. It might be and I'll remember it when I least expect it.
Today was a great day. I was writing more content for a niche website I'm working on and was looking for some templates I could use. I also made a header for it and I think it turned out pretty well. Seeing as I have little photoshop/design skills. I also started tweaking the template and adding content. It looks really good.
Tomorrow, I think I'll work more on implementing the content. Maybe take a look at domain names. The last few days till vacation will be hectic with getting stuff ready so I don't think I'll get a whole lot done.
The month of January is going to be crazy. I have a lot planned, so stay tuned.
I think thats all.....

Another One Bites The Dust!
It's "done"! I've worked very hard on my newest project, The Dark Side blog. It follows me in my journey into the world of Apple. I've bought an iMac G5 and have documented since the beginning. So if your curious about switching to a Mac, go check it out.
Again, I'll give a big thanks to Mandy for
helping me with the question box. I was going crazy over it for a week or two.
I say it's done but it never really will be. Always tweaking, changing, re-designing. Thats what is so great about websites, you can change something fairly easy.

One Week and Counting
Yes! One more week till the cruise. It's going to be so much fun.
Today, was a great day. I got a lot accomplished. I added adsense to the dark side blog, fixed the RSS feeds, fixed the posts that were messed up from the transfers and did a few little things here and there.
A short post but thats it for now.
