So Many Books!!

reading

I read a ton of books last year. I spent so much time on planes and in travel last year that I was able to read quite a few stories. I set a goal…then blew it out of the water! My goal last year was to read 40 books. Somehow I was able to read 48 books the year before and thought that 40 would still be a good goal without being too easy. continue reading...

I’m quite proud of my homepage. As I said before, I used to use services like Flavors.me and About.me for my main page because they did something particular…that gathered my info in one place.

Notebook The notebook is my new blog. I have cover images, large titles, and embeds. The “hamburger” icon [ ], yes…that’s really what it is called and I’m not a fan either but it’s a convention, will get you to all my personal links. continue reading...

Wheres the Old Content?

site

So if I have a new site, new style, new domain…you’d think I’d scrub all my old content. But that’s not exactly true. Where’s all my old content? No worries, it is safely tucked away. Due to the site refactoring, the old content remains in it’s old domain: http://blog.traeblain.com/. All your old links will work, and it shouldn’t be that big of a deal. Below I am including all the links for posterity’s sake. continue reading...
