Standard Theme

8bit Products Are Great!


Have you ever wondered why my blog looks the way it does or why I chose this website over all the other options out there? You’ve probably heard me talk about my site running on WordPress. But that’s only part of the story. On top of WordPress I run a premium blogging product called Standard Theme. It adds a significant set of enhancements to WordPress.

Without a theme like Standard, I would have to get a programmer to accomplish the same things.

Here’s the cool part. 8bit, the makers of the Standard Theme, just announced an Independence Day sale for their entire theme line from now until July 5th. Even better, they’ve released two brand new themes this month: Pro Photo Theme and Dev Theme that are going on sale too. Continue Reading →


5 Reasons Why You Need A Blog Partner

I’ve been blogging (consistently) for about two years. John of Tentblogger has been extremely helpful in recent days to help fine tune the why and how of blogging.

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to speak by phone with my blog partner Blane Young. It’s the first time I spoke with someone about blogging…. specifically, my blog. We shared a lot of great ideas about our references for blogging and plans for the future. While I won’t go into detail regarding all of what’s ahead. I can assure of one thing it will be GOOD. That’s a hint 🙂

More importantly, here’s what I learned after talking with Blane. I’m sharing these, because I’m almost certain (so was Blane) that our paths are likely to have never crossed with out this post.

Here are five things I learned that may be of help to you:

  1. Never be afraid to improve
  2. Never be too wise to learn something new from someone else
  3. You can broaden your horizons by listening to people outside of your circle
  4. Except constructive push back, just like positive feedback
  5. Extend the conversation with an actionable follow up (something GOOD is about to happen)
