Made a new ecig sale for South Beach Smoke. It was a big sale, too, giving me a commision of $119 and some change. I was hoping to get the check later this month, but they have already been released. Looks like I’ll be getting one next month, though, for $184.98. Not too bad considering it’s just one of the companies I affiliate with, and I could always make a few more sales in between the next check cutting.

I noticed a new flag on my 43Things counter today, and it was from Iraq. That brings my grand total to visitors from 85 countries.

I promised everyone on LetMeWatchThis (1channel) that I would rip and upload the P90X video series. No big deal, but now I can’t find a streaming host that will allow me to upload that much data. I also have the Department S series to upload, as well. Of course, it’s going to take a while, anyway, because Road Runner (regardless of what they tell you) does throttle speeds, but first I need to solve this hosting space dilemma.

Speaking of P90X, I really need to get active again. The last 3 or 4 months have been really lazy for me. I’m not sure if it’s the bi-polar or what, but it seems like my productivity has gone way down.

I think I’ll start with Sparkpeople because that site and it’s people always seem to motivate me. The menus, themselves, make the site worth it, but it’s put together really well. I recommend it to everyone.

Of course, I need to actually start exercising, too. I’ve always said that the Total Gym is definitely a good fit for me, but I’ve never really taken advantage of it. I’ve had it for probably 5 years now, though, and have used it maybe a dozen times. Time to get back the money I spent for it, though, and do my body some good in the meantime.

I was thinking that, since I want/need to do this anyway, maybe I should put up a fitness blog up and write about my experience? Maybe include some fat and skinny photos for the ‘before and after’ shots. Hopefully, I would make a few bucks along the way, too.

Like an idiot, last Friday I auto-updated the WordPress framework on my Latchkey Niche Blogs site and, I should have known, it killed it. Originally, I thought I would have to recreate the entire thing, and was contemplating changing the theme, too. Since it wasn’t working anyway, I decided to just delete everything and start from the ground up. After I re-installed WordPress, though, I noticed that the posts were still there, which reminded me that the database was still in place, since I hadn’t deleted it.

Long story short: It was all still there, but since the links on the pics had changed, I had to re-upload those. Not a big deal, though, since I only have 18 blogs for sale at the moment, and only a handful of other graphics on the entire blog, fortunately. It took me a total of about 20 minutes, and now the site looks just like it did before ‘the incident.’

I still need to re-do the Paypal links so I can actually sell the blogs, but that shouldn’t take more than an hour or so once I get a chance to get to it.

And finally, some words of wisdom from Harlan Ellison:

‎”Everybody has opinions: I have them, you have them. And we are all told from the moment we open our eyes, that everyone is entitled to his or her opinion. Well, that’s horsepuckey, of course. We are not entitled to our opinions; we are entitled to our informed opinions. Without research, without background, without understanding, it’s nothing. It’s just bibble-babble. It’s like a fart in a wind tunnel, folks.” – Harlan Ellison

This is my old ‘WhoTheFuckIsBrad‘ WordPress theme based on the Alfred Hitchcock movie “Vertigo“:




You can see it in action live here: Old Theme: Vertigo. Please leave some comments as to what you like or don’t like about it. I’m really just an average blogger/writer, whereas you guys have to be able to read the content with ease and be entertained at the same time. At least, that’s my hope.

Mania sat in, as usual, on payday and hasn’t declined since.  My newest friends have quit calling me for the last few days, for some reason, so I have had more than the usual amount of energy. However, got LOTS of work done on the Ecigs Today site yesterday.  Bad news, though, in that when I updated my WP framework for Latchkey Niche Blogs, it broke, and I don’t think I ever made a backup of it.

I did get an idea today about using WP.com to host Latchkey Productions site. It would be a lot easier, problems would be WP’s problems, and I can just send the blog to my LP domain.  🙂
