Hello friends, family, followers and strangers!
This blog has been live for four years with the same template and layout. The blogging world has advanced in technology, but the old bigasssuperstar.com had not.
Now I'm taking advantage of some of the improvements at blogger.com. I've switched hosting to Google's blogger system. The domain now points there.
The change means you'll probably find some broken links and missing images in old posts. I'll be working with the old hosting folks to sort that out over time.
On that note, a shout-out of great thanks to Vic Metcalfe at Zymurgy Systems for his years of help in hosting both www.bigasssuperstar.com and the decade-old www.cygnals.com. Vic's changed business direction and handed his hosted customers over to Aurora Ontario company The Tech Zone.
As far as content here, I'll still be talking about the usual stuff: my life, my interests, my obsessions, my adventures in Nova Scotia and around the world. Personal finance, music, technology, geekery and occasionally etymology.
I've also been reading up on how to maximize revenue from the small amount of advertising present on this site, and when I analyze the logs to see how people are coming to the page, I realize that I could probably be exploiting it a bit better. So expect to see a few articles that are outside the usual subject matter covered over the past few years. Basically, expect to see 'big ass' in the articles a bit more. I hope to make a few bucks, ya dig?
Thanks for sticking around. I'll be here!
Any major bugs, complaints, feedback, whatever -- go ahead. I'd love to hear if the new layout is an improvement from your perpective.
