I’m proud to announce that I’ve finally completed the totally overdue re-branding of my professional site.
You can now find me at www.baldwriterdude.com. How did I come up with that name? Simple. I’m bald. I’m a writer. I’m a dude. I put them all together, checked GoDaddy to see if the URL was available and did a little happy dance as I cranked some loud music through my headphones. It was The Adventures of Rain Dance Maggie by Red Hot Chili Peppers in case you were wondering.
The URL was purchased and the theme picked out. I’m really happy with the theme, but not with the fact that it took me many hours poring through code that I don’t understand to finally pull out the ad for the company that created the theme. I don’t mind that they put it there, but it seemed like I needed a degree from MIT or ITT just to figure it out. Yes, I do know that those two institutions are at opposite ends of the credibility scale. No offense if you went to ITT (or DeVry) but you have to admit the entrance standards are slightly less stringent than at MIT. Am I right?
I’ve been playing with this for a couple of weeks and I’m finally pretty happy with it. If you have a moment, please check it out. I’ve put up some fiction pieces as well as a few other fun things. Don’t you love short blog posts? Word to your mother.
recently just now set up a Linkedin account. I have no idea what I’m supposed to do with it, but if you do, please send me a friend request or whatever they call it. Thanks.
