My Blog in Review: 2009

Well, the end of the year is here already. I thought I’d look back at what I had on my blog, talk about what is to come, and a little bit of other stuff.

It’s hard to believe that this new blog (code named Jerenspeak) went up back in April. Since then, I’ve covered a variety of topics, from a browser comparison, domain slamming, and Eric Clapton, to Twitter, Star Trek Online, and Doctor Who. It’s been an interesting year, with a range of subjects that I hope my (limited number of) readers have enjoyed.

I do have quite a bit to post on the same subjects. Articles are already written. However, they will be posted more regularly than before, especially after I get my entire site redesigned.

So, what is there to look forward to? More Twitter/online safety tips, Doctor Who news and reviews, information about Star Trek Online, web design/programming tips and guidelines, music/guitar information… it’s all coming! Just be sure to subscribe to my RSS feed or Twitter account to stay on top of it.

I hope everyone stays safe tonight. And we’ll see what comes with my site for 2010!

New Posts Coming Soon!

I haven’t blogged in a while, but I can assure you that the ideas have been floating around!  So, what can you expect to see?

As I was asked one or two months ago, I’m going to begin a series of posts about the internet, various aspects of it, and ways that you can use it. I’ll also point out potential dangers, as well as showing how you can protect yourself from those dangers.

I’ve also got some posts ready to go with regards to Apple. Those posts will be out once I finish with a few certain things.

Is there a topic that you would like me to write about? Post it as a comment to this article!

Blog Updated, And I Need Your Help!

I recently upgraded this blog to the latest WordPress version.  I had such a pain with it as I tracked down some issues I was having.  I’ll write more about that later.  But, for now, I’ll just say that, with that upgrade and troubleshooting, I had to change some things around.  Many plugins were reinstalled from scratch. So, to ensure that all is working right, I’m calling on all of you!

If you could, take a look through my blog and test things out.  If you find something broken, let me know!

Thank you!

New Site Coming

At least, I’d like to think that I have a new site coming.  Well, I have several new sites coming.  But, when it comes to this site, it’s a new design that I’m talking about.

The last couple versions of JoshsPadd have been darker, though I was proud of the last version when I created it years ago.  At least, I was of the design.  I never did get around to really making a site out of it.

Now, I’m going for a brighter look.  Something professional, sleek, and hopefully attractive.  Just like me! (At least, that’s what I think…)

How will the new site look, exactly?  That hasn’t been created yet.  All I do know is that, soon, a new site will be there.  The splash page is a little sample of the kind of look that I’m going for (and borrowed from a splash page I made for another site I recently did).  It hopefully will be something people like.  And if not, then I may have to tweak it a bit (depending on who the people are that I ask).

But if anyone has ideas on how my new site should look, let me know!  This is going to be a my portfolio site, showcasing work I’ve done and being about me and what I do.  So, any ideas to add? I’d love to hear them from you, no matter how you choose to contact me.
