I fall behind on website maintenance a lot because I consistently overschedule myself, and when I do have the time to do it I end up spending hours playing Oregon Trail on my Blackberry (still the greatest game ever). THIS week, however, I finally managed to make it all the way to Oregon with only two of my children dead from random bear attacks, so I quit while I was ahead and got some actual work done!
First I added a few things to our press section. Even though I signed up for Google Alerts, I completely suck at keeping on top of this, so if you’re a blogger who happens to write about us and would like some linkage, feel free to let us know. We’d love to link to you as well, thus completing the circle of life and appeasing the Interwebs. Sorry it sort of looks messy- the window to edit Tumblr pages is really really small, and very hard to work with. I’m doing the best I can, Goddamnit!!!!! Stop judging me!!!!
Also, I finally added an About Us tab, since lots of people have been hounding us for bios. This is a project I’ve put off for ages since it feels so wrong to talk about all your accomplishments, like you’re some big fancy pants show off that’s better than everyone. I may be many things, but I am NOT a namby pamby fancy pants show off boogerhead. (maybe that should be my bio)
Then it occurred to me……since YOU are the ones who would be looking at it, what do you guys want to know? Seriously, ask us anything and we’ll do our best to put your question up there with a semi-serious answer. We care and your input matters- this is TOTALLY NOT because we’re wussing out and trying to get you to get to do some of our work for us. So ask away and enjoy the silliness now, before we inevitably sell out and have a PR consultant tell us how we’ve been doing everything all wrong, and have all of our social media taken over by a 23 year old named Kaylie (with a heart over the “I”).
And on a closing note- Happy 4th of July! We hope you all have a great long weekend- we’re closing ourselves for the holiday, so we’ll see you again next Wednesday. Now, in honor of our country’s birth- our NSFW National Anthem!
