Launched a New Blog
June 4, 2008 in Personal
Actually, it was an effort to prove to my kids that a website can be launched for free, get traffic and possibly, earn some income. (trying to motivate them to get started in the business)
Anyway, it’s devoted entirely to words, definitions, word origins, neologisms, curious phrases, and eventually, to copywriting. And, I can keep this blog free from posts about words, and get back to SEM and SEO.
If you notice any display problems, please let me know. Was having some JS issues. I’ve checked it in IE and Firefox and it looked okay. Except when I log in from the uni, and for some reason, the CSS doesn’t get pulled and it looks terrible.
