Thanks

Thanks everyone for letting me have a little temper tantrum yesterday. I got a little discouraged because I saw another blog with the "Alien Nation" giveaway with over 125 entries and had a WTF!? moment. It just boggled my mind that out of say 300 viewers only 3 or 4 would be interested. Then I started having blog envy and that never ends well. I appreciate the encouragement. I have been thinking of changing things up though. The Pioneer Woman has an awesome setup on her blog that literally has me drooling. She kind of does what I do (only waaaaay better) in that she has several different blog pages. She originally set it up like I have, with links on one blog page to the others. But now she has a template that allows you to scan all the pages on the main page. What's great about that is that she doesn't need to update each page everyday because you can immediately see the updated content to go directly to that. I'm definitely feeling her setup. At this point though I don't know squat about setting up that kind of template. She uses Wordpress and I am completely in the dark on how to set it up. I've scanned all kinds of blogger templates and can't find anything of that caliber so I expect I'm going to have to have a site designed for me. Maybe then my blog envy will go away. Till then, here's a little video of Optimus Prime doing an "Evolution of Dance" tribute. Watch at least until the Villiage People song comes up. The hip thrusts are slightly disturbing, but funny.

I can't let Optimus Prime go by without a comment, 'cause I love that video.

I know where you're coming from with your blog. I blog about two things.. stuff that happens to me, and stuff that happens to me in WoW. And thanks to Entrecard I found a whole community of bloggers that blog about WoW. And they're funnier than me, and have much more coherent things to say about the game than I do.

In the end I decided that it's not about who does what, or who does it better. My blog is my blog, and it has something those other ones don't.. ME! :) And as long as that's special, well, my blog is too. And so is yours!

I use WordPress for my Eternal Vigilance site and love it. It's actually REALLY easy to use and I built mine using a free template offered on their wordpress.org site that I then customized using my own images. All of the instructions you need to set up a site are on the wordpress.org site (not wordpress.com). :)

Yeah, I get where you're coming from. But I still have a massive inferiority complex most of the time.

Thanks! Do you recommend any of the web hosts?

The Pioneer Woman site is pretty cool. It looks like she has one of those magazine set-ups and tweaked it to fit her needs. But no worries you're doing well over here. The content is good!
