The cost of ad blocking and how to fix it

I will admit, I use AdBlock on a daily basis. Although a big part of my job is digital advertising, I mostly always have AdBlock enabled. I know I'm not the only...

I’m starting to have fun with Photoshop

So I've been trying my hand at Photoshop a lot lately. I've always had fun messing around with stuff, but I've been doing a lot more for the Meltdown and the station as a whole. It started with Alabama heading to Miami for the BCS championship, and now with signing day, but it's just grown and grown and I've done a lot of good stuff. Here are some of my most recent creations, including a Meltdown wallpaper you can use for yourself! You can always tell what I've had fun with, because it will crop up in multiple images. This time it's grunge backgrounds and 3D text. I also have a couple of other things to put out, but I can't because it's for secret stuff that isn't supposed to be announced yet, and I'd probably get in trouble. The photos after the jump...

WordPress 3.4 and updates

You can now embed tweets like I just did, and you can also customize the Twenty-Eleven theme a bit more. I usually try to design something or work with a pre-made framework when I make Wordpress sites, but I decided to stick to the main theme this time to see what it was like. In other news...

Social Media Solutions

Call it "thinking lazy", or call it "thinking smart" - either way, the new social media tools blow my mind. Granted, I'm sure it's not new by any stretch of the imagination, but...

Oh hi again…

So as I'm sure most of you are aware, my server was hit hard by a virus about 4 or 5 months ago. It was not a fun experience. After a weekend...

Mobile posting

So I got an iPad for a graduation present and I must say, I have been waiting to get a tablet for a while. I am typing this entire post on it, and...

Welcome to me

So in all actuality, there are probably many other things I could be doing right now instead of making this blog. However, I don't really care because I just kind of do what...
