Back in New York and Sample The Web 2.0

In case you haven’t been following my Twitter stream, and you’re interested in what’s going on, we’re back in New York. We arrived Tuesday and have been staying with Kristin’s parents since we returned. We’ve been back to our apartment in Bronxville several times with boxes, but we’re still working on getting it fully set up and 100% livable. We’ll probably spend our first night back out there on Tuesday or Wednesday night. Yesterday, we drove up to Bristol, Connecticut for a little weekend party at Arlene and Kenny’s. It was definitely some much needed down time after all the crazy moving about we’ve been doing.

I’m happy to be back on the East Coast and looking forward to what’s ahead. More on that later…

Also, you may have noticed that I changed this blog’s theme yet again. I cannot seem to find a theme that really works for me. If you’re a designer and you think you could build a good theme for Sample The Web, please let me know. I don’t have a fortune to spend, but I’m willing to pay to make this site look better.

I’m thinking it’s time to give this site an overhaul. I want to make it more professional. I want my personal blogging, like this entry, to be in a separate section with it’s own feed and I want to make Sample The Web start to live up to its name and start being more consistently about what all is happening on the web. I still want it to be my blog, but I think I know what people want to read now. There’s a small audience of friends and colleagues that keep coming back to this blog because they want to see what I’m up to, but I also know there’s another audience here that likes to read my non-C.K.-focused posts and who would probably respond well if I tried to make more regular attempts here on this blog at writing the types of posts I’ve done professionally in the past on other sites. I’ve entertained and informed people with my writing in the past and grown traffic dramatically on other sites, so I’m pretty confident I can do it with this site with a bit of dedication. I’d love to hear feedback from my current readers about what they think about this idea. What would you like to see out of Sample The Web 2.0?

    I had no idea you were heading back to NY.

    I’ve already started packing back up myself. Houston is not for me, especially considering Ralph works either off-shore or in Singapore. I’m pretty much alone 24/7. I’d rather be in the Northeast. I miss it and the people terribly.

    I’ll be back up in December and have to stay at my parents’ in Yonkers until our tenants move out in June.

    We should get together and swap stories. Please post a lot about the Fall weather and turning leaves.

    Hope you guys can get settled in again. Best of luck.
