I’m happy to see that Google is starting to give page ranks back. While I’m not back to my PR6, the PR3 is just as good for the time being. I do hope to get my original rank back but that’s something I’ll have to take up with them in the future.

Stylish Web Design

I do a lot of surfing around the Internet, probably more than I really should considering I have a mountain of work to do. Today I came across a site that’s pretty similar to my own.

Keeping Busy

I’m the kind of person who likes to keep myself busy. Unfortunately, for the past few days I’ve been busy trying to figure out how to stretch some bills around so I can take the little money I have and invest it in a new place to house my websites.
