New Blog Design

I’ve been intending to do a re-design and upgrade for a while, but finally just got around to it the past few weeks after Detailed Image launched.  If you’re reading in a feed reader, this might be the one post where you’ll get something from clicking through and actually reading it on the site.  In no particular order, here’s what’s been changed: A more modern design.  Special thanks to Phil Thompson, who developed the Dylan theme that I started with and then customized to my… Continue reading


T Minus 1 Week to Launch

As you may have noticed, I’ve been posting less and less lately as we get close to launching the new Detailed Image.  Short of an unexpected disaster, we’re planning to roll out the new site next Friday, May 1, around 6 AM Eastern Time.  Until then, I’ll be on a hiatus from blogging as we scramble to wrap everything up and do sufficient QC testing.  I’m thoroughly impressed with how well everything came together.  We all worked extra hard to manage the additional day to… Continue reading


Vacation Time! Guess Who’s Filling In?

So tonight while watching the football games I decided to spend some time on the blog.  I am planning a huge overhaul designed… Continue reading


A Change of Scenery!

If you’ve stumbled upon this blog, odds are you’re coming from the SportsLizard Entrepreneur Blog. This is the new-and-improved version of the blog formerly known to many as the SL YE Blog. I still plan on providing the same type of raw and candid content, and hopefully will be able to use this fresh copy of WordPress to stretch the limits of what I provide to the next level. If you want to go back and re-read any of the old SL YE Blog, which… Continue reading
