MacSparky 2 Year Blogaversary

Today is the 2nd anniversary of the launch of MacSparky. It continues to amaze me how many readers there are. I started this site with no clear plan in mind except to have fun and, indeed, I have.
The numbers have continued to grow and while I remain a small outpost on the edge of the Interweb, I get an unexplainable amount of satisfaction from running the MacSparky empire and hearing from readers.

Things should be coming around later this week and definitely by the weekend although I’ll have to take a pass on this week’s Surfbits podcast. The good news is the review I am currently working on is ScreenFlow and hopefully I’ll be able to put up a new screencast once I get the new machine configured.
Thanks for your patience and stay tuned.

Website Woes

Today I upgraded Wordpress and managed to thoroughly botch things up. I was using an old template that had fits after I upgraded. Thankfully, I got things sorted out with a new template that is nearly identical to the old one. I’m still dealing with “issues” in the banner but hope to have those sorted out soon.
Once again, my pal Darren Rolfe from Macwingnut totally saved my bacon with getting the logo on a new banner. Things are busy in the office but I should have the site further tuned up in the next few days or possibly the weekend.
