I recently ran a logo design contest on 99 Designs. It was my second contest overall. The first one I did about 2 1/2 years ago was such a success, that it seemed a no-brainer. This recent contest turned out to be a flop, despite paying twice as much this go around. I love the […]

Commuting is a drag. There was a point in time that I had a 5 minute commute to work, then I decided to move and my company said I could just work from home. When it came time to switch jobs my walk down the stairs turned into a 45 minute (one-way) commute – and […]

Now let me preface this by saying I am a huge fan of Dave Ramsey and I see the wisdom in all of his teachings. Now that said, I readily admit I don’t follow everything he says. One area in which I don’t follow along is with the cash envelope budget system. I think the […]

I love Gmail, but I find it rather annoying that they feel you never need to delete an email. It took them about 2 years to add the delete button. I don’t know why they didn’t add a shortcut key with it. Certainly, they must have had thousands of requests for it already.Well, I’m happy […]

There are lots of local business on the Internet. I think every business should have a home page. It’s basically like have a really cheap glorified yellow page listing – but so much more. You can share everything about your business and even automate some of your business processes. There was one occasion where we […]

I guess I just don’t keep up enough. I only scored a 28 here: http://www.cerado.com/web20quiz.htm Now I supposed after the popularity of this quiz sets in, all Star Wars characters will eventually become web 2.0 sites 😀
