By day I work 60 hour weeks. At night I am a devoted father and husband to the world's greatest family. Somewhere in the non-existent time between the two, I am a writer. Join me from the beginning as I chronicle my adventures to become a successful published author.

Day 13 - Massive Overhaul, Blog Under Construction

Today has been a massive overhaul of my blog. I am, for the record, using the term "today" loosely. I started work on it at around 9:00 PM. It is now 3:50 AM. I stopped once about 15 minutes before midnight to write a few sentences on The Militia, ensuring I kept to the most critical task at hand, being the novel itself.

I am not finished with the overhaul, but I think you will be able to see the direction this blog is headed. Slowly but surely, the ax is becoming razor sharp.

A few items of note:

  • There is now a photo of me. I am sorry to scare you like this, but what's done is done. 
  • There are now (uncompleted) tabs at the top, with sub-tabs available in the future. There are a few placeholders for the moment, so don't be concerned if they don't make sense or don't actually have a link tied to them.
  • There is a short Biography about me under the "About Matt" tab
  • There is a Contact tab. This will be updated in the future with more methods of contacts
  • There is a great slideshow style navigation near the top, where I will put highlights to various blog posts, web page elements, and even outside bloggers and other resources from time to time. What is featured there will change week to week.
  • The blog is a lot cooler than before.

As always, if you haven't selected to follow my blog, I encourage you to do so. This site will continue to grow and improve, and I can't do it nearly as well without you.

Thank You,
Matt Tandy


Wow. Nice job. You going to teach a class on how you did all this?

I think it looks great. I think it may be time for an overhaul of my blog too.

It looks awesome and very professional. I can see all the hard work you've put into this.
