Welcome to JordiScrubbings.com. I am your host, Jordi Scrubbings, and this is my site.
Funny how that works, right? It’s my site and it is named after me. I think there is an ego thing going on there, I’m not sure.
On a related note, I once read that people shouldn’t name businesses after themselves or their family because if it fails they will feel like a piece of themselves failed. I guess that doesn’t apply to the web, where more and more people are advocating attaching your name to your site as to build “brand recognition” and all those other cute social media terms. But what if the site fails, and no one reads it? Won’t the author feel unappreciated? Not that I will have that problem, because there is already at least three of you from my old site here reading this right now.
One of the strangest things about having a new site is having to decide how to start. For the last month or so, I have been collecting ideas for posts that I didn’t feel fit on the old site. Now that I am here, do I go all out and release the hounds with a bevy of banter? Or do I slowly trickle my topics to you like a sly seductive sadomasochistic samurai?
By the way, what do you guys think about the new layout? I’m using WordPress now instead of Blogger and I like the functionality, but I think the layout is a little weak. For one, I am not sure if this layout is banner friendly. That was one thing the old site lacked that I want to rectify over here. So if anyone has any banner experience they can share, I am all ears.
(Another thing I can’t figure out is how to align a pic on the right side of the post. I tried eight times to get the above pic to align right before finally giving up. What am I doing wrong?)
That’s all for now. Tune in next time when I discuss other stuff.
Oh yeah, I almost forgot. I wrote a new post over at the FSU fan site ScalpEm.com on whether selling stock in the Florida State Athletic program would reduce the mystique of the Seminole Booster program. Go check it out.
And another thing, Who Shot Mamba? is out and playing at its appropriately named website. Written by a former NBA blogger, it’s a good old-fashioned, family friendly flick and the first movie to list me in the credits since the mysterious and seldom seen “Flash Vs. The Aliens” (soon, good people, soon).
