Good morning! Just a couple of quick updates:


The site is back up to speed at this point (aside from missing the posts that were meant to go up yesterday, which will be added back to the site over the next two days). I would greatly appreciate it if you could let me know of any bugs or issues you may still be experiencing. And once again, thanks for your patience!


I’ve received a few inquiries about my annual gift guides, so I wanted to put the call out to all of you. If you’re unfamiliar with the way I’ve done them in the past check out this search to see 2009’s posts. The guides will begin to go up the week after Thanksgiving, starting November 29th and continuing every day that week.

If you make or know of a product that you think would be a good fit, I am accepting submissions. Please just be sure to check out last year’s guides first and determine where you think the item would most make sense. Then shoot me an email with images, pricing and a link to where it can be purchased.As with the regular submissions, I will do my best to respond to everyone, but I may only be able to contact those whose products will be included.
