Thinking of Promotional Items for Metallman

Hey there.  So I've been on a mission to overhaul this blog.  I spent some time thinking about my layout and I've decided that I really need an expert to come in here and change things up.  I need a new logo and I need something to pass out to friends and family.  I realized this weekend that a business card would be cool.  My comadre and a friend both had business cards that they were passing out at a party and I figured that it would have been cool if I had something to pass out as well.  Well... for one thing, I'm considering getting custom printed envelopes since I've been mailing out games to my winners.  Custom pens also have been considered.  I told myself that everyone needs things to write with so I can just throw a pen in the envelope as a thank you.  Just a few ideas that I have been toying around with.

PSN Attacked Again! (05.18.11 Post Update)

Hey there. The Playstation network has been attacked again!  This morning, once everyone was beginning to feel all warm and cozy over the mass Emailing that Sony sent out to their customers, the hackers got to work and infiltrated the "new and secure" PSN.  Now, the service is down while Sony works on fixing it.

Family Trip to SeaWorld

Hey there.  I haven't had a chance to catch up with you guys over what went down this Memorial Day weekend.  I decided long ago that we were not going to stay home this weekend and we were going to have ourselves a good time.  I toyed with the idea of taking the family to Las Vegas, Disneyland, and LegoLand, among many other places but due to high entry prices and/or road trip time, I crossed many of those places out.  In the end, I managed to grab a great deal (buy 1 get 1 free) on SeaWorld admission.  BAM!  We were soooo there.

What Are You Getting Your Dad this Father's Day?

Hey there.  Father's day is less than 3 weeks away!  Have you managed to snag that awesome grill he's been eyeballing?  How about that brand new set of golf clubs?  Silk ties?  Great looking slacks?  Nothing?  Anything? Oh man...  You better hurry.  Before you know it, the big day will be here and you'll be caught empty handed.  Fear not!  For we have something awesome called the internet!  You don't need to go into a brick and mortar store to get dad something great.  You can browse online through hundreds of shops and save money on gas.  And... as an added bonus, you can use online discounts and coupons.  With all the "coupon craze" going on right now, everyone is looking to find a great deal no matter where they shop and shopping online is no different.

Hey there friends.  We have 31 friends that all want this game and they registered 124 entries.  Thank you contest gods!  lol  I  created a spread sheet to keep tabs of everyone who entered and how many entries they received.  Here's a small snippet of that:
