Day 29 of 365: Holding Off a Short Bit, The Magazine Backing Agreement Signed!, The Site Has A Logo, Fixing That Broken Piece

Holding Off A Short Bit

I decided to hold off just a short bit on the next quitting smoking attempt. Call it superstitious, but, my last fairly successful attempt started on a Saturday night / Sunday morning. And, well, there might be something to that. If I think it’s going to work better, then it probably will. But, part if it may have a basis in fact. I smoke like crazy on Saturday nights in a social setting, then, sleep in a bit on Sunday morning, there’s no work pressing, just stuff that Kat and I would like to get done.

So, I’ll continue to smoke a bit until then. I’m looking forward to this. Except that withdrawal part ūüėČ

The Magazine Backing Agreement Signed!

I’ve mentioned before that there was a backer coming along for the two magazine sites (three, really, though the third won’t be launching for a while). ¬†Well, today we met and signed the agreement!

While it’s not a huge amount of money (this is a shoestring budget thing), it is mind-blowingly awesome. ¬†I sat down with the list of things I want to accomplish with Residential Aliens Magazine and Fear & Trembling Magazine. ¬†It’s fairly ambitious, but, nothing on the list is too hard to do. ¬†I’m not going to detail out all the things we’re going to try and do at the moment. ¬†A good chunk of the reason

The Site Gets A Logo

Yeah, OK, this is sort of weird and random. ¬†I was fixing something else entirely (well, I think I’m fixing it, anyway – still having problems with Facebook bothering to handle the auto-publisher), and… well, I guess I just had a weird stroke of creativity, and realized I had a template that would be PERFECT for the site. ¬†Some quick tweaking and hacking, now my blog has a brand. ¬†Not that it ever needed it, but, now I have it. ¬†Behold the awesomeness! ūüėČ

Fixing That Broken Piece

So, for a couple days in a row I’ve complained about a broken bit of the site. ¬†It’s supposed to just go head and publish it’s self in the morning, without any intervention on my part. ¬†Plus, it’s supposed to echo those posts onto Google+, Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. ¬†But… it wasn’t working at all with Facebook. ¬†Come to find out, something seemingly unrelated had gotten updated after all! ¬†It was some Search Engine Optimization stuff, and to be honest, I hadn’t bothered keeping up with SEO on this site. ¬†People find me here anyway, but, that was also tied into how Facebook saw the site. ¬†Now that I’ve tweaked that out a bit, hopefully it will actually post on it’s own tomorrow ūüôā
