Surprise mail

Last week I got snail mail from Buffalo, NY, USA and I was really like "WTF... who is that from!" First I thought it was some promotion from a game developer conference or maybe promotion from a online poker site. To my big surprise it was actually from Google! Included was a check of 102.31 CHF (Just about $100), earnings from Google Adsense. I was surprised because I didn't request a payment nor did I think I had so much…

Kick start of Blog Summer 2009

Oh dear, things have just been going slower and slower with the blog. Not that I don’t have tons of things on my mind but I just never get around to blog about it. Often I think “Oh, I have to blog about this…” (Examples: Lord of the Ring concert in Denmark, when Michael Jackson died, movies I seen, games I played, software I use and the list goes on) I might even get started on writing but that’s all that happens.

Let me do a quick follow up on the last post and then write a bit about what is going to happen now…

Returning to the blog

Things sure went down the hill with the blog the last few month, sorry about that. What makes it worse is that I at the very start of the year wrote about my goals for this year (No Real New Year Resolution but goals for 2008) which included a few blogging goals, then later in February I wrote about starting up again with the blog (February 16th: Starting up again) and since that post I only wrote 6 new posts.…

February 16th: Starting up again

More than a month now without any postings, is that bad or really bad? I think it is pretty bad and not what I have had in mind (or On My Mind). Oh, and no, it is not a side effect of the blood donation I wrote about last time :-) Due to changes in my work I have put aside all time for that (more info about that might follow) but enough is enough, there must be time for…

Some small changes to www.SamuelNova.com

Happy New Year

Guess it is a bit late but since this is the first post in 2008 I would like to take the chance and wish the readers of my blog a Happy New Year.

I hope the people who set New Year resolutions and goals for 2008 didn’t give up yet. I’m still sticking with mine but the year just started.

Changes

Let me go over the small changes that I did recently. People who come here regular (you do, right?) might have noticed the changes already; but let me sum it all up:

My blog became – Blog A Day

Guess I'm pretty lucky at the moment, first the great review by Valerie and now Blog A Day by Beth. Seems Beth liked my blog, so why don't you head over to her 'review' of it and read it yourself. She got some great comments that made me simile ;-) oh, and she subscribed to my RSS feed, thanks to Beth. Guess this puts some pressure on me for writing more good posts. She claims that she is good in…

My blog got reviewed

I'm always interested in hearing what people think of my blog, both design and the content. So recently when valmg offered to do blog reviews I just had to grab the chance. She wrote what I consider a rather positive review, which can be found on one of her many blogs, just go over to her Cats and Coupons blog to have a look at the review. One thing she got right was that the right sidebar are cut off…

HubPages and what is that about

As mentioned the other day, I recently signed up at HubPages and already did my first Hub, so some might wonder what that is about and what it got to do with my blog. What is HubPages? The very short version: HubPages is a CRAZY big blog with around 40.000 articles, written by a lot of different people (Their best list got 6999 listed). A Hub can be seen as a single post/blog entry. The Hubbers (writers/bloggers) can write a…

This blog is powered by…

As a follow up to my post about WordPress 2.3 and theme change (See here) as promised I would do a list of plugins and what else is in use for this blog. Questions and comments are as always welcome. Hosting The site is been hosted by DreamHost. This means I got close to infinite storage and bandwidth (at least it feels like it). They are also hosting at a great price with possibility for some great discounts (See my…

Now powered by WordPress 2.3 also featuring new theme

I have now finished upgrading to WordPress 2.3 and at the same time I changed the theme. To be honest; I'm happy with the result. The upgrade was long overdue and well, the old theme didn't work with 2.3. Sure I could have fixed the theme to work with 2.3 but at the same time I wasn't that happy with the look of it. So after a lot of testing I came to the theme that you now see. The…
