Going On Vacation

Well I just wanted to let everyone know I am going to be taking a little vacation. Things for me are going well and I have a few extra dollars lying around so I'm going to help the sluggish economy and spend them. Anyway I hope you are all doing well making money online. I will hopefully be returning in a couple of weeks, not sure when, and I will work on getting back to posting. This year has been crazy. If I was the type of person that just spilled my life out online I would tell you about it. I'm not though so...

I am in the process of moving...I've made some wonderful new friends...Just enjoying life

New Blog Takes A Shot At Me

Okay the other day I posted about the free premium UBD Moneymaker wordpress theme. In that article I mentioned a blog that was using the theme and linked to it. The blog was En Fuego Blogger dot com the article was I Didn't Start El Fuego, I Just Got Burned. Well I noticed yesterday evening a link back from that blog and stopped by to check it out. Well the guy takes a shot at me. I get knocked for my long URL, I know but what can I say, and questioned whether or not I actually earned close to $1500 in January. Well the long URL will most likely stay for the time being and yes I actually did earn that amount of money.

Anyway...Like I said the blog looks very new, only 3 articles. The theme looks great but something just doesn't seem quite right on the lower part of the sidebar. I read through the article that mentioned me and En Fuego blogger talks about the purpose of the blog. He is looking to put into practice what the meta-bloggers say will make a successful blog. I like his line about "I tried making money online and all I got was this stupid t-shirt." Very funny. He is wanting to judge based on results whether or not all the advice floating around is actually worth diddly. Well I must say I wish him the best, and thank him for the link and constructive criticism. Check out the blog and let me know, and him as well, whether or not you think the blog will really be as his name states, En Fuego? Or will it simply be a wisp of smoke from the ash heap of failed blogs?

I Have To Admit I Bought The New iPhone

At least I didn't stand in line all night in the rain for it. I don't understand why people would do that. It is after all just a phone. I have to say that I loved my previous iPhone and once I got used to it it was the best phone I've ever had. The only things I always wished that it had was 3G and GPS. Now my new one has both. With the price dropped to $199 with a contract it really is a good deal. I have already played around a bit with the GPS and it works much better in the city than my Garmin. I was going to have to pay to update the GPS with new maps or simply buy a new one, but I figured I would just wait for the iPhone. I'm glad I did. Now I can ditch another device from the car!

The main reason I went this morning to get the iPhone and just didn't wait until next week is that I am leaving to go out of town this evening and wanted the new phone with me. I am on my way to Dallas, Texas for a family reunion. I am really looking forward to it as I haven't been to one in about 4 years or so. I figured that if the line wasn't too bad I would go ahead and stop and pick one up. The ATT store by me was pretty much dead. There were a few others buying but nothing like the ones downtown. Anyway you all have a great day....

Free Premium UBD MoneyMaker Theme From Unique Blog Designs

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up on an awesome and free Wordpress theme from the great team over at Unique Blog Designs. Here is the information I received from Nate Whitehill. Check out the theme in action by visiting a new "on fire" blog I found. It looks like the blog is still in the development stages but it is one of the few blogs other than the live demo blog that is running the new theme.
the UBD Moneymaker Theme is now available to download - for free! The theme was designed by Phillip van Coller in conjunction with UBD. The UBD Moneymaker Wordpress Theme is not just any ordinary theme - it has special functionality that you tend to only see in premium Wordpress themes.

For example, the UBD Block Ad Plugin is built-in - you do not need to install it separately. This is also true for the social bookmarking functionality and several other sidebar plugins.
Maximum ease of use - enhance your theme without touching a single line of source code! Not comfortable editing your theme’s source code? Fear not! The theme also features a built-in “Theme Options” panel which allows you to integrate Feedburner, MyBlogLog Recent Readers, and the 468×60 in post banner ad. You can edit all of this stuff without ever touching a single line of code! How is that for ease of use?

A Theme Options panel makes theme enhancement much easier for people not comfortable editing source code. We are happy to announce that all future UBD Designs and Wordpress Themes will feature the Theme Options panel for maximum ease of use.

UBD Moneymaker Theme Features & Benefits
  • Fully Widget Compatible (drag and drop your preferred selection of sidebar elements)
  • Built-in UBD Block Ad Plugin (manage and automatically rotate your 125×125 banner ads)
  • Additional ad management for the in-post 468×60 advertising banner
  • Theme Options panel allows you to integrate Feedburner and MyBlogLog recent readers code - all without touching a single line of source code

Usage Agreement This theme is free to download and use on as many sites as you would like. That being said, we would sincerely appreciate if you left the credits in the footer. Thank you. We hope you enjoy the theme! Let us know what you think by leaving a comment on our blog.

Best regards,

The UBD Team (Josh Mullineaux, Matt Blancarte and Nate Whitehill)
