Ranking Stumblin’ Sunday

A while ago I began doing Stumblin’ Sunday posts. Well, that’s a lie. I did one post about the best site’s that I’d come across using StumbleUpon that week.

Well, the good news is that now that I have constant computer and internet access I can start posting again, wooh! Aren’t you so very happy?!

Improve Page, Alexa and Technorati Rank at ImBloggingThat.com is a great guide to how to increase your PageRank, Alexa Rank and Technorati Authority and Ranks. A great read if you’re obsessed with your site’s numerous ranks.

Humeros Bathroom Signs from around the world – the last two are the best and most imaginative I’ve ever seen.

TeeVsTee.com is a simple voting site where you pick your favorite out of two t-shirt designs. Since I’m a sucker for cool t-shirts, I love this site and there are a good few shirts that I now must have after voting for around 5 minutes. Simple, silly and addictive.

Naked Tickle Me Elmo and more…the robots beneath the fur. Sounds weird, but it’s a pretty cool look at what exactly makes Tickle Me Elmo laugh and Barney dance.


A few hours ago I opened up my Google Reader and began reading through the 100+ feeds that I’ve managed to neglect over the course of the past 4 days. I was quite content reading away until I came across an entry from Nettuts.com about creating a layout.

I loved the end result of the tutorial and ended up creating my own theme from the tutorial. It’s very similar to the tutorial, but at the same time, it’s not really. Uh, whatever. I love it and it’s staying for the long run (i.e. about 2 weeks).

I’ve got a couple of things still to add, my Reading Library to change back to running off a plugin rather than a script from another site, and I’m not too sure about the text at the top…too much like a menu, maybe? I don’t know. I’ll see if it grows on me by the morning.

It’s a miracle that I’m still awake, I woke up pretty early this morning because the sun was blaring through my curtains. I’m impressed that the sun was shining on a Bank Holiday, to be honest, such a shame that I had to go to work though – I spent half the night staring out the front door wishing I was sitting in a park, eating a picnic and listening to music with my mates!

And after the chaos trying to get to work I really wasn’t in the mood to be working at all. I’m off til 4 p.m. on Wednesday and I plan to fill those hours with as much as possible rather than my usual of sitting watching TV or reading a book. This is my opportunity to do some soul-searching of my own.

I want to do all my laundry and take old clothes to a charity shop since I’ve got clothes everywhere which I hardly ever wear. And I really need to plant all the bulbs that I bought a few weeks ago in the front garden so that when summer finally arrives the garden will be nice and colorful rather than just grass and a few roses. I like having something pretty to look at when I’m sitting outside reading.

Other than that, I don’t know how I’m going to fill the next two days – I have no spare cash so anything that I can do must be free. If it’s nice again tomorrow I’ll probably take the dog down to the local country park for a while, I’m sure she’ll enjoy it and I could do with the fresh air.
