After 5 years of trying, I was finally able to get my hands on the domain name VegasGeek.com. Best Buy owned it at one point, then it changed hands a couple times between people who would never respond to my offers to purchase it. That changed recently and I'm a pretty happy camper.
Now that I have it, what the heck should I do with it was the next question that went through my mind. It sat dormant for a couple months until I saw this theme from WooThemes called Object. Bingo!
I'm a big fan of my friend Todd's photo blog, 606diaries.com. He takes photos with his camera
every day frequently at 6:06 pm. He'll post the photo and will go back later to write a quick post about what he was doing. I've wanted to do something similar for quite a while. Finally, it's ready to go.
A quick install of WordPress and the Postie plugin and the site was basically ready for blogging on the go. I take the pics with the iPhone and email them to a secret address. Postie checks the mail once an hour and if it finds an email from me it cranks out a new post. Super simple!
I do have one gripe about the new site. If you subscribe to the RSS, the photo doesn't get sent. Just the content of the post. I'm going to see if I can get that fixed pretty quick though. – FIXED!!
My goal is to try and post at least once a day. We'll have to see how that goes.
Do you have a similar project? Leave a link in the comments. I'd love to check it out!
