OT – The Mighty Metallica Now Available on iTunes


The day has come…Metallica finally decided that their fans could buy their songs individually. Their albums have been available online, but they didn’t want to sell their songs individually. I’m not sure what prompted the change, but for me this was excellent news.

I have enjoyed listening to Metallica ever since high school and I had all of their albums. Through the years I’ve sold them for one reason or another and I didn’t want to go out and buy them again. Especially not with our financial situation right now. I just listened to the radio and hoped to catch one of their songs here and there.

But yesterday I saw the news, hopped onto iTunes and downloaded my 4 favorite Metallica songs, including the ever-so-awesome bass solo by Cliff Burton. I haven’t heard that in a long time and it was music to my ears.

Thank you Metallica for finally joining iTunes.

Would I Want Today to Be Different?


Darren Rowse at Problogger.net wants to know what we would do differently if we had to start our blogs again.

Honestly, I wouldn’t change a thing. Why? Because I am very happy with the progress I’ve made with my debt reduction and I am very thankful for every visitor I have had and every comment I’ve received. I never thought my credit card debt would be where it is at right now. It may only be one dollar under $30K, but it’s still under $30K 🙂

If you think about it – if I changed one thing about how my blog developed, today would be different. I like the way my blog has progressed. I wish I had a screenshot, but my first template looked somewhat like this except the background was black. Looking back, it was sort of depressing and while I thought it was neat when I first had it, it soon didn’t fit “me.”

Then I went to a dark purple and dark green theme that I designed. Again, no screenshot. But, it was a little better than the first one in terms of a positive attitude. That one was soon replaced by my current theme which I was so glad to be able to reproduce in WordPress (I was on Blogger before).

At the moment I cannot see my theme changing but it probably will. As I learn and evolve, my blog will evolve. I think it’s great that I have this snapshot to look back upon years down the road. I believe that the human mind is complex and interesting as well as very powerful. I look at my blog as a way to understand myself a little more, and I slowly am.

So, I wouldn’t do anything differently 🙂
