One busy busy bee asking for lots of input and suggestions!

No, I did NOT realize it had been over a month since I posted last. I swear, I keep writing posts in my head! They just never get published. They have publishing from email and phones, why not from my brain? I promise it won't be so long before the next one! I have to tell you about these AMAZING Coconut-Lime Lace Iced cookies I made a couple of weeks ago. I even took pictures (hence the latency on the post)

I have been a bit busy while pamakana has been been on hold. I decided to dive into the world of wordpress and help out my friend and neighbor. She is a media consultant and overall great person who has built a great local business for herself just on word of mouth and a static site, but really, it was time for interaction! And I was itching to learn something new (Funny how things work out like that!). So we got together and I customized her site based on her requirements and feedback. It's still a work in progress - so if you have any brilliant insights as to ways to improve it, please let me know!

I am also using wordpress to figure out how to best display PopArtJohnny's art. It is still very much a work in progress but at leat the images are up! You still can't order yet, hopefully in the next couple of weeks that will change ;) (again, ideas and suggestions are ENCOURAGED!)

All this learning is a terrible time suck. I completely lose track of time trying to 'one more thing' and then it's after midnight and I have to get up at 6am for my REAL job (the one that pays money!). It's really fun though! And my brain is really happy to be figuring out something new that has nearly instant tangible results. It's very satisfying and I think I kinda like it a lot.

Yes, I do see the irony of building wordpress sites and talking about it on a blogspot site. If this domain name weren't already owned by someone I would have purchased and transfered! Now I am just trying to think of a new name. Ideas? thoughts?

What would you name my blog that is all over the place? Suggestions Please!!!

Both of those sites look great! I was just thinking about starting a wordpress blog but the idea of making it pretty scares me! Perhaps I'll need to call on my friend Kate. I'll keep thinking of new names for you...other than your own, that is.
