Free Open Source CSS Templates

Posted on: February 23, 2009 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

I’m always interested in finding free and open source CSS templates on the web.  If nothing else it gives you good ideas on what can be done on web pages and a code base you can use to build your own templates.  Othertimes, I like to take the whole template and just make some minor modifications to fit a website I’m doing.

Today I was linked to another resource.  Since I don’t keep favorites, I just blog about web pages I like here’s a link to Open Designs free and open source CSS templates.

Let me know if you know of other sources for these types of templates.

I’ve personally seen Blue Man Group and Phantom and they are both spectacular experiences. I’ll give the edge to Blue Man Group, because it’s so unique and different. Plus, it hits all of your senses in such a variety of ways. The ending of Blue Man Group also just can’t be described. I’ll leave it at that so I don’t give too much away.

The comedy pet theatre is done by a guy named Popovich that I first saw on America’s Got Talent. Nice to see he’s making a living with a show on the las vegas strip.

Anyone else have Las Vegas shows that they like on the list?

As I discussed at the first Las Vegas lunch tweetup, I’ll be trying to do a tweetup about every other week. We have a new location this week so make note. Everyone’s welcome so let me know if you’re coming so I can let the restaurant know.

This month will be at a nice little italian restaurant on Tropicana not far from UNLV.

Here are the details:
Location: Sergio’s Italian Gardens – websitemap
Time: Noon
Date: Tuesday, February 24th

Send me a tweet or leave a comment if you’d like to come. Everyone’s welcome as long as we don’t get too big for Paymon’s.

Just for my reference more than anything. Here’s the list of people who are planning to attend (with a link to their twitter account of course):

After I experienced a bit of jealousy over all those people that were going to the Beer and Blog Las Vegas, I decided to do my own Las Vegas Lunch tweetup. Evenings are just too hard for me with my little ones. Here’s my original tweet announcing the Las Vegas lunch tweetup.

Here are the details:
Location: Paymon’s Mediterranean Cafe Mapwebsite
Time: Noon
Date: Tuesday, February 10th

Send me a tweet or leave a comment if you’d like to come. Everyone’s welcome as long as we don’t get too big for Paymon’s.

Balancing SEO Efforts

Posted on: February 3, 2009 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

I was just looking today at my stats. Ok, I check them every day, but today I was thinking about the difficult challenge of balancing my SEO efforts. The question is whether I should continue to reinforce the existing keywords that are already bringing me large amounts of traffic versus building SEO for new keywords.

Of course the answer (like it usually is) is that I need to keep doing both. The hard part is finding the balance between the two. I don’t know a good model for doing the balance. Anyone have any suggestions?

At the end of the day, I just keep trying to create great content with good, relevant keywords and I try not to worry too much about the rest. I think it was Gary V who said something like do something, because something is that much more than nothing. I just keep trying to do a little bit of something each day to build my online empire. Maybe one day I’ll host a video show where I have the guts to make a cold sales call unscripted like Gary V. Until then, I’ll just keep doing something.
