Faster Than
a Speeding Bullet!

June 10th, 2015

I am building my first site for a client via Adobe Muse. The design was put together yesterday, been continuing to tweak it this morning (have an 11:45am call to review).

What's so exciting to me is how smooth the process of actually building the site will be once the design is approved! Everything is prepped in the .psd file to export the assets, then I just drag and drop those assets into place within the pages in Muse. This is how Web design should have always been. ...I sure hope I never have to touch HTML, CSS, or Dreamweaver ever again (finger's crossed).

Finally Updated
My LinkedIn Profile

June 7th, 2015

I think I created my LinkedIn account in, oh geez, I really don't know come to think about it. 2008, 2009? Was LinkedIn even around back then?

It's bizarre, I know so many people (both clients and co-workers) from the last 20+ years who are not on LinkedIn. So my connections are a bit thin, well, via LinkedIn that is.

Anyway, I've now updated my profile but most importantly I've updated my profile pic. You see, I'd been using a photo Chewbacca's son all this time because: reasons.

Custom Facebook Previews

June 4th, 2015

I've seen custom Facebook previews plenty of times, but since I'd been out of the Web site building business since early 2013 I just figured it was something that required some custom code and if I wanted to implement it - I'd need to fiddle with code. And, well, since I was no longer building Web sites I had zero interest in fiddling with code.

Thank you Adobe Muse for allowing me to not have to fiddle with code!

How-to Videos Section Offline (updated)

June 3rd, 2015

Not sure what's going on at the moment, but my how-to videos section seems to be offline.

I'm investigating the issue, the plug-in seems to be acting a bit strange. Just un-installed/re-installed it, no change. I'll update once I've tracked down the issue.

UPDATE: it's back online now, I didn't do anything. I'm wondering if it was something on YouTube's end. The order of my AR/VR videos are now, well, out of order as well (which can only be controlled with YouTube's video manager).

330 of 30

June 2nd, 2015

We are currently on day 330 out of the 30 day construction.

Having recently watched The Money Pit, I'm able to find the humor in all this (I think).

Under Construction Today?

June 1st, 2015

Amanda and I were talking about the construction on our building the other day. It began nearly a year ago and was supposed to last only 30 days.

I'm really hoping they're not going to require power tools today as my backlog of videos to create has been getting a bit out of hand. I should know by about 11am today as to whether or not I can continue.
