As a few of you already know, I recently jumped into the freelance writing realm. So far I’ve only written a few sports pieces here and there, but I’ve decided to kick it up a notch…
I’m going to expand into design as well!
I just got my domain name, and now it’s time to put my web design skills to work and crank out another site. I’ve made a logo too, but I keep changing my mind on it. I haven’t decided the timetable yet for getting the site up and running, but hopefully I’ll have something soon.
What sort of stuff will I venture into? Anything really. You name it — restaurant menus, cards, invitations, publications. Hopefully it will be constantly evolving.
Do I have a name for this entity yet? I do. Here’s a hint: it has to do with a fruit.
More details to come!

Even though iGoogle themes have been out for months, I really started warming up to mine today. When Google first unveiled these options I opted for the “Grass” theme. A nice, default choice, this theme shows a grassy field with a sky that changes throughout the day to mimic the day’s cycle.
A few days ago I decided to change to the “Summer Ocean” theme and I couldn’t be happier. How could I be? If my favorite place on Earth is the beach, why not be reminded of it every time I log into Google?
The theme cycles through 12 nautical images, with a new one appearing every 30 minutes. I know it’s only a simple, colorful addition to the top of my Google page, but every time I look at it I smile and imagine myself laying out on a tropical island far, far away from winter drear.
But then again, it was 75 on this beautiful March day, and tomorrow they’re calling for 82 in the Richmond area. I believe that’s what we call the perfect beach temperature. I should tan outside tomorrow, and close my eyes and let the beautiful pictures from the theme transported me to a beachy state of mind, without having to fork over the gas money.
Sigh. I want to go there.
