Halloo internets!! I have a new theme, whattya think?
Yeah. I know.
S L O O O O O W.
I can’t even say slow slow enough to fully capture just how slow my blog loads now.
No fears tho! Thanks to the fabulous Jason Grigsby and his talk from last year’s WordCamp Portland , “Speed Up WordPress: Make Readers Happy and Your Site Green”, I have this handy little tool on my FireFox called YSlow . And I’ll be using it to optimize my blog so the SLOW WILL BE NO MO.
Just as soon as I have time. I mean, you see how long it took me just to install a couple new themes to play around with?
THE BUSIES. I HAZ THEM.
Still. Here’s a short little list of all the plates I have spinning merrily:
- Ignite Portland 8 (March 3rd! Come see!)
- 30 Hour Day 2 (July 2-3. AT THE SQUARE. Squeeeee!!!)
- WordCamp Portland 2010 (September 18-19)
- Junior producer for Strange Love Live and memePDX
And that’s just my projects. I still go to martial arts class, I still work on the Eternal Project, I date people, I try to keep my dog well exercised and happy because she’s the bestest dog on the planet, I am trying to build a couple of DJ sets to shop around, and I still love to write using blogs for my various writing outlets (this here personal one, OurPDX, and now the WordCamp Portland blog is gonna need some loves from me.)
Oh yeah, and work.
I could use some help with that stuff, you know. If you’re not doing anything. Stuff like:
- Recommending great local bands who’d like to play the 30 Hour Day 2 Variety Show on July 3rd
- Volunteering for some core responsibilities for WordCamp Portland
- Mow my front yard
Ok I was kidding about the yard one.
Also, just so you know – lolcats might be taking over my brain. If my posts start to become a bit gibberishy-make that more gibberishy than usual-please send a couple dogs, or cat exterminator, to save me and my dog from the lolcats.
