Ditching the Old Digg Theme

  • Comments: 7
  • Written on: November 27th, 2007

I am finally giving up on the old dig theme as a base for my blog. Between the components that do not accurately render across multiple browsers to the cumbersome sidebar interface – its time for the Old Digg theme to go.

I am planning on switching to the Cutline 3-column theme with some heavy modification. If you are a regular reader, please stick with me through the conversion.

Friend Blaster Pro Review and Techniques

I have some great content coming up! I just wrapped up an evaluation of a MySpace bot program called Friend Blaster Pro. I will tell you EXACTLY how far you can push it before tripping the MySpace security troopers. Of course, this review is not to be used for spamming – just maintaining the 100-some MySpace accounts you already have and manually update 😉

Freebie Friday Giveaway

My Buddy Wes Wyatt suggested I review some hardware items and then give them away on the blog to build traffic. I have two video product reviews filmed, and I will be editing those shortly. I am thinking about calling it Freebie Friday, so guess when you should check back for that!

Advertising Opportunities

I will be adding a little bit of direct-buy banner advertising (not affiliate ads) as well as ScratchBack and of course the obligatory AdSense. Don’t worry though – the main reason I write this blog is to generate good content and entertain. I make about $2 a day from it right now, so let’s just say I have a way to go before I can buy McDonalds every morning from my blog revenue.

Of course, none of this makes a lick of difference if you can’t navigate my busted up Digg Theme that won’t work in Safari, looks like crap in FireFox, and gets blown up by a long category name in IE7. More to come guys!

    Stinking NIM. (I realize this is not about your current blog post, but I’ll get to that!) The one I wanted to win did not. Joel is crazy.

    What is the Friend Blaster thingy? Can you give me a little, teensy, weensy bit of info about what it does?

    BTW. How’s the new Mac?!

    LOL, that’s the hook! I know my blog is going to transform over the next few days and I need to keep you all coming back for more!

    Ok, so I have a heart… Click on the banner ad on the top of this page to learn all about Friend Blaster Pro. They have a nifty evaluation version you can try for free.

    I definately recommend you buy the software if you plan on doing any social network marketing. This can’t be beat and its effective for SEO as well as direct marketing of products targeted toward the 15-25 year old demographic.

    I will post a formal review and some strategy tips on using it in the next couple days, but in the mean time, buy it, set up a play-around profile (don’t use your real MySpace profile until you read my review ) and be ready to add 20,000 friends in a single week!

    Cutline is a great look. Chris has a knack of making themes that are ‘reading-friendly’. Looks good!

    We’ve got to get you a new header; what is that dog about to do? It already looks better and you haven’t even customized it! Nice choice babe.

    This already looks way better than yesterday when I last saw. I like it.
