Since I rarely post to this blog. I thought I would compile all the things I did for a given week or  month (or several months) into its own post I’m calling “What’s UP Bryan?”. We’ll see how this turns out.

NEW HOUSE

As you might have seen from a previous article back in April, we were in the process of looking for a new house. It seems we are now a victim of the bad economy. The house appraised too low, like $12,ooo too low. So the seller and I didn’t agree to make up the difference so we walked away from the deal.   Sarah and I were really upset and shaken up by the whole ordeal. We thought we found a house we really liked but that house wasn’t meant for us, so we brushed off and tried again. We did alot of searching before we settled on the second house offer. This time I’m happy to say that the house we are getting  appraised higher than the asking price and we are moving in on June 26th! This house is even better than the first. Its alot bigger and in a better area of town. We are super excited to get this house and can’t wait to move in.

PODCAST

picture-4Right now I’m in the preliminary stages of planning a podcast with some friends. I’m still researching the equipment and technology I’ll be using to record the podcast and piecing together   ideas for content. There are a lot of things that I’m interested in and its hard to nail down one subject or a couple of subjects. I guess that’s the problem with being interested in a little bit of everything from technology to social networks to pop culture. I’m open to ideas so suggest away!

I ordered a Blue Snowball USB Microphone which I heard is a good starter mic for podcasts. I can’t wait to get it and test it out.  My friend and co-worker Rob will be the co-host of the podcast. We still have to find our hook or what’s gonna separate use from the 15 million other podcasts out there. We both agree that we want our show to be orginal and different and there lies our dillema. Expect to hear more about this in the coming month.

DRUPAL

My other side project is to learn a Content Management System or CMS for short called Drupal. Drupal is a very robust content system that is built on PHP. I hope to use this system to help start a side business of creating websites for local businesses in the area. My first “job” or project is redesigning a local museum’s website. The museum is a Non-Profit organization so I am doing the job for free to get some experience and also to get my name out there. They are very understanding of the fact that I am new to web design and for that I am grateful. I hope to design the site in such a way that it is easy for them to use but still pleasing to the eyes  (I guess that’s the creed of all designers). I’ll keep tabs here on my progress.
