Van SEO Design News: Hosting Issues And Moving Again

A few weeks ago I published a post here on WordPress dropdown menus and began a small bit of promotion. I tweeted the new post, submitted it to a few design sites that ask for community news, and passed the word to a few friends.

It’s been awhile since I posted and I figured it was about time I explained my absence and how I’ve let this place become a temporary ghost town, especially since a few people have recently asked me if I was still ok.

Who’s Up For Guest Posting?
