Hey everyone,

IGI fan Tif has been trying to get the blog up and running again for the holidays and is even running our Facebook page, too!  She's actually a professional freelance writer who is graciously lending her talents to write exciting blog posts about... erm... noodle rings?

Anyways, be sure to check out the blog and see what you think.  And if anyone would like to donate to Tif so she can keep writing for us, be sure to stop by the donations page.

Who the heck is TiF?

And why should we give her money?  ||unsure||

The blog layout itself could use a revamping. It's too much of a generic wordpress theme.

Hi! I'm Tif  ||wink|| And no ones saying that you have to give me anything. That said, the more I receive the more I'll be able to do (time isn't free, etc.).

I agree with you 100%! But a complete revamp is relatively time-consuming. And as much as I wish that I had all the time in the world to donate, I sadly do not. Self-employment isn't nearly as easy as it looks; I'll put as much time as I can in (after all, the success of IGI is important to a lot of people), but donations make it easier to dedicate more time.

Either way, I'll continue writing for the time being (I'll even start posting links to the posts here on the forum so that folks know when there's a new one) and hopefully start driving some new traffic this way. If you guys have ideas for future posts, either shoot me a message or leave them in this thread (where I'm most likely to see them).

I look forward to getting to know you guys! Have a great day  ||smiley||

And today is the one hundred year anniversary of Frank Sinatra's birth. Is the blog covering Old Blue Eyes?
Jesus Christ died so you could have access to God.

Hiya, Tif.

Well, if you take over the blog and would like a redesign of the layout, I could whip something out for you. I know wordpress and html/css/php.

QuoteSelf-employment isn't nearly as easy as it looks;

Yeah, I bet. I tried doing self-employed IT work but I wasn't bringing enough in. My husband's a self-employed carpenter and he can sometimes work on a project for 12 or more hours a day just to finish on time, and then go weeks without too much work. Seems like a pain in the ass to me, but I'm sure it's rewarding also.

Good luck.  ||smiley||

We totally could have! Unfortunately I didn't see this until now.

If you're willing to donate the time, I'd definitely appreciate it!

And thanks for the warm welcome, folks! :)
