New Year, New Blog

I started 2014 by launching a blog for the first book I wrote. Nothing wrong with that, of course, and quite common. But I feel I need a place to discuss subject not only related to my books—yes, I am in the process of finishing a second book—but also about my passion about 3rd generation Firebird Trans Am automobiles and life in general.

So, instead of trying to maintain several web properties, including my Google+ page, a new Twitter page I recently started and two blogs, I decided to make my life easier and condense the two blogs into this one.

This way I can talk about my books, my 1989 Turbo Trans Am, and whatever else comes to mind.

And since this is a work-in-progress, I need to have a cool header for the blog. The problem is right now I am very limited as far as tools that would enable me to create one.

So I will explore www.elance.com and see what some of the freelance artists out there can do for me. I figured this must be an issue that many bloggers and even small businesses face, and I am a firm believer that you must put your best foot forward when it comes to your digital presence, so a cool logo or banner is a must, and to that end I will explain the process of having a freelancer create one for my site.

Who knows, maybe a reader will benefit from this. The reason I thought of this is because a good friend of mine who designs fire sprinkler systems for commercial buildings had no idea that it was possible for someone like him to hire a freelancer. Yes, it may sound like something super basic to some of you, but, the truth of the matter is that we are bombarded with so much information about, well, everything, that it is impossible to be aware of all things that are available out there.

Anyway, I will try to make this blog as entertaining as possible, so stay tuned and hang on!
