Much overdue announcement – I’m now writing for Ladies…!

So you know that blog, the lovely, 3,000+ pageviews-a-day blog about hot athletes that inspired me to create this site? Yeah, well, I write for them now. You heard that right — I, formerly just a lowly little blogger, am now writing for the premier blog of our niche.

Head on over to Ladies… and browse the archives, check out the introduction post, and don’t forget to sign up for the RSS feed. C’mon people, you know you want to read more of my random crap! I’ll probably earn the nickname “pitching-obsessed girl” before too long… it’s happened in every other part of my life.

Shameless Self-Promotion

You may have noticed the little box in our sidebar, below our wonderfully awesome tag cloud and above our absurdly technical copyright manifesto, that says “we’re on twitter!”, has an RSS logo, and displays a little sentence or two (frequently one mentioning Ollie Perez, but that’s hardly the point). This is our feed from Twitter, where I (Crane) microblog about stuff that’s usually baseball-related. Some of my recent tweets have touched on such diverse topics as software, Formula 1 merchandise, Roy Halladay’s cooking habits, and the seatbelts on old Buicks.

Interested yet? You can subscribe by clicking here, or you can take a look at my recent updates by clicking here.

We’re also on Tumblr, which can be found here. It’s also in our sidebar – we’re just ‘testing our tumblr feed’, as you can see, because we aren’t sure how it handles images and whatnot. Email me if you know how to change the background picture on a Tumblr theme.

We also run occasional liveblogs/liveglogs, whatever you want to call it — you probably didn’t notice, but I stayed up until 5 this morning haphazardly liveblogging the WBC Game 1: China vs Japan — through the lovely CoverItLive.com, which is so user-friendly that a sleep-deprived college student can successfuly set up liveblogs.

This wonderful ad appeared thrice (did I really just say that?) over the course of the game. Sorry about the link-through; I wasn’t sure if it would embed properly.

I may or may not have the courage to grab a Mountain Dew and liveblog tomorrow morning, or tonight, or whatever you want to call it (my circadian rhythm’s beat up pretty bad), but if I do, will you try to follow along? Please? C’mon, guys. I didn’t get a single liveblog reader, although the post containing the link got a couple hits.

Look! It’s a Public Freakin’ Service Announcement!

We’re trying to find a theme that works with our tag cloud (that thing on the right side of the page where “baseball” shows up bigger than a whole bunch of other words). I haven’t learned CSS yet, so I can’t really figure out why our old theme (incidentally named “Contempt”) was all screwy on the homepage but not on any of the post pages or on the Contact Us page. I also haven’t figured out what the deal is (with all these parenthetical notations).

Unless something goes drastically right very soon, I’ll have more on this (later).




on twitter:

  • "See, the internet is in colour." I don't know what that has to do treadmills, but I'd like to thank this Sears employee for telling me. 7 years ago
  • Does the McDonald's on 5th St in Roscommon MI have a drive-through? 7 years ago
  • RT @Psych_USA: It's 10pm....... you best be here this time next week or I'll cry.... don't make me cry. 7 years ago
