The Wired Kayaker has a new logo…

For the past couple of days I’ve been conversing with David Airey. I won an awesome contest that he hosted and it included a custom logo for one of my blogs. I chose The Wired Kayaker. This is going to be one of those blogs of mine where I am not only going to be posting great information about kayaks and kayaking but also podcasts. I have done a couple and have two more that need to be edited. That is, when I can find hours to devote to the editing. Anyway I have a new logo for The Wired Kayaker and once November rolls around and the pink themes change I am going to unveil it on The Wired Kayaker.

Update: It looks like David Airey beat me too it. Check out his blog post about the Wired Kayaker Logo and how he came up with the design. I suggested slanting the kayaks to represent the forward slashes in “http://”. I’m glad he used that suggestion, I think it really lends to the overall design and I am very pleased with it.

I also am going to get a new site theme for Read To Me, Dad. That blog will soon become an online force to be reckoned with as I explore different children’s books as well as tips for new dads. I already have a great recipe for do it yourself baby wipes and once I actually make them I will share that with you on Read To Me, Dad. Read To Me, Dad is also being hosted by John Boardley of . John set me up with hosting and even loaded the blog with the latest version of WordPress. Sweet! With the custom them from Nate Whitehill of Nate Whitehill dot Com and Unique Blog Designs.

And today I got my Moo cards for Blog World Expo. If you are there ask me for one they rock. Those and my VistaPrint cards with moo stickers on them are very very cool. Ask me for one of each. I got a ton and want to share.

I didn’t win for the best Photography blog, I came in 5th or 6th, that is a pretty good showing. Anyway voting is done for 2007 but it starts again already for next year. I’d certainly like to win. So 2008 is going to be a great year for Photo-A-Day. Vote early help get me to the top of the pile and stay there.

Oh and I almost forgot. Cali Lewis mentioned Read To Me, Dad on her Geek Brief 246. I used her promo codes with go Daddy.com to buy the domain name of readtomedad.com. Watch the brief, and you will want to subscribe to her podcasts. She rocks.

Quite the tease of a post I must admit. Visit the blogs on the 1st and see what changes have occurred. You won’t be disappointed.

Photo-A-Day #715 03/24/07


Today Allison had Zeta Day. I worked on the blog most of the morning. Then went and got lunch at d’Angelo, got my comic books and took a ride out by the farms. There were some horses out and the sun was out on this beautiful day. I went home and decided to head back up to the farms on foot with my Nikon D80 Digital SLR camera. I took this photo on that walk. Continue reading Photo-A-Day #715 03/24/07
