Happy Thanksgiving and Welcome Back to the Pridelands!

First off, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you (even those of you not reading this)! I am thankful for my family (especially my wife and my mother) and I’m thankful for all of my friends!

Second, welcome back to the revamped version of The Pridelands! As you can see, like a few other people around (special thanks to Mitch Cohen and Matt White for many of the tools and instructions I’ve used), I’ve left the comfort zone (but slightly feature lacking) Blogsphere and went to WordPress. I still have a lot of work to do, but didn’t want to wait anymore. This has been a project for some time (when I had time).

It was a hard decision to move… I want to thank Declan Lynch for the Blogsphere template that helped me in many, many ways. I wanted to to add a few features that the template didn’t have, I wanted to be a bit more consistent with other blogs I’m running, and I wanted to learn a few more things, so it necessitated this move.

As I move forward, I’ve got to convince PlanetLotus that I’ll be around for the long haul. Hopefully, I can be allowed back into the feed aggregator, and you’ll start to see a lot more of me.

Until then, HAKUNA MATATA… and GO LIONS!!!
