How is this not going to simply make car retailers put their prices up by 2 grand?

Selling WordPress Templates

See, the thing about WordPress that really sucks is that on the free platform (i.e. hosted sites), you can’t use your own wordrpess template without coughing up some money. Now, I’ve not done the sums, but given the ridiculousness of how cheap hosting is these days, it would be daft to pay wordpress instead of simply buying hosting and having your own install. Or would it? I mean essentially it would amount to the same thing, except that you wouldn’t necessarily have a domain name if you went the worpress route.

See, Blogger isn’t like this. The free blogger service lets you completely customise it if you want. You can slap up your own templates to your heart’s content, and showcase your awesome design skills. Oh well. Sure is a pity, ’cause I’ve designed such a nice wordpress template and everything. And how the hell am I going to sell it if I can’t showcase it? meh. Suppose I could give it away instead of selling wordpress templates.

I know that blogger is owned by google, who, let’s face it, have money to throw around. But really, wordpress could take some notes here. On the other hand, wordpress don’t really have a monetisation model like blogger er I mean google. So, maybe they’re stuck with having to charge people for custom upgrades.

Either way, the underdog blog will always be free. If you want a free wordpress template, email me. put the words underdogblogger and gmail into some sort of semblance of an email address….don’t forget the @ sign or the .com and you should be good to go!

Moon Movie

May 15, 2009 1 comment

Sod Star Trek. That’s what I say. Who wants that prozaic super CGI’d boring old predictable space movie? Even if it has Sylar as Spok. Moon – now that looks like a good old space movie. Lookit – here’s a trailer:

Damn cool. This is space from my childhood. Big chunky machines. Lots of squares and giant industrial like blocks and chunks. That’s what space exploration is all about – utility, not fancy nokia flip phones with cool gloss sheen finishes. Those things wouldn’t last a tick in real space. You need something big. Built from titanium. Utilitarian. That’s what you want. None of that scrawny sleek modern ipod looking junk you find in Star Trek.

Sam Rockwell’s Moon looks like something you might have imagined exploring while playing Moon Patrol. If you’ve never played Moon Patrol, then you’re probably too young to be reading my blog. I gots adult language on here and stuff.

My coffee tastes better than yours because I can draw pretty patterns on it when I pour my milk…..

of course, my coffee machine probably costs more than your entire kitchen’s worth of appliances…..

(or where I wonder why I haven’t written for so long)

Too long neglected, my blog needs some fresh meat, some new content.

Trouble is, it gets a bit old, the old make money online blogging. I mean, you aren’t really interested in how I go about supplementing my income are you? Why would you be? Indeed, why should you be? It’s all a bit sort of egotistical anyway isn’t it…..reporting back on failed or successful methods of making money online….o, I made xxxx dollars selling websites on sitepoint and yyyy dolllllaaaaaaahhhhhhhssssss with an adsense blog and then I hit paydirt with an affiliate product that nobody ever heard of before, by the way check it out here and sign up for it with my affiliate link. See that? See how sneaky that is. Oh. You’re all wise to it already aren’t you, you know my tricks. You know me too well. You aren’t going to clickie and gimme a few pennies are you? Or if you click from random boredom, you’ll clear your browser cache before you buy. Damnit!

Yeah, so a touch bored with the megalomaniacle (is that even a word) world of make money online blogging, I think I will change this here fine blog, commit further seo suicide and just blog about whatever the heck I feel like. Followers be damned. Money be damned. This little slice of internet pie was never really meant to make me money in the short term and I’m not going to MMO blog for the long haul, because there are too many other people who want to score for the term make money online and as I pointed out up there, it just gets a bit dull indulging one’s ego all the time. I may throw you a bone now and then about my adventures in the online world. But probably, I’ll just randomly write whatever I feel like. Oh I’m such a hypocrite. Ego is great.

I am the drool on transmarginal inhibition’s snout.
