It seems that I’ve been MIA for a few weeks and this blog has been a little neglected. Well, that has changed and I have returned.

I became super duper busy over the past few weeks and wasn’t able to update as much as I would have liked. I’ve decided that I am shifting my focus to my online business for the next 2 months. I’ve decided I will not be accepting any new consulting clients (however, I will still make appointments and schedule my previous/current clients if necessary).

This site has also received a make over - I’ve love to hear any opinions on the design and layout, so don’t be shy - leave a comment or send me an email (star-at-astepcloser-dot-com).

I’ve upgraded to WordPress 1.5 (very nice, I’ll write a review on that in the next couple of weeks). I’ve also added Google AdSense. I know the main purpose of this blog is not to generate money, which is why the ads will only be visible if you’re referred from search engines or another site - and they will only be visible on individual entries.

I will be creating another section that outlines the goals, purpose, and caveats of this blog later on next week (or hopefully sooner). For now, know that the #1 goal of this blog is not to pimp out services or products - so I’ll try to keep all that to a minimum here.

If you’re a regular, you may notice things being moved around, that is because the site’s not *truly* finished yet. There are still a number of things I would like to add to the site and will be making the time to do that over the next 3 - 4 months.

Since it’s very late, I’m going to call it an evening and I’ll finish this update in the morning.
