A Pay Raise Realized


It's the first Friday of Spring in the States and…payday!

This is my first paycheck to include my merit increase for 2006.

It's a nice monthly boost which will just barely cover my rather large rent increase for the next 7 months.

Time is really flying now. It's hard to believe it's been 5 years since I conjured up the idea to travel around the world.

Here's the rough plan:

  • Late September – submit my resignation at work (shhh!)
  • November 2 – last day of work
  • November 3 – move key possessions to storage, and shack up with my retired parents
  • November 22 – celebrate Thanksgiving with family (parents only, as brother likely to be overseas)
  • Soon after – fly to New Zealand (exact date to be determined based on cheap airfare)

At the end of the day, it's all about numbers. If you get bigger numbers to your site as a result of the plugin, then you have to expect a payoff, and that is giving some PR away to those who are making an effort on both of your behalves.

Some good improvements you've made, I'm trying to do something to improve my blog everyday and I might have to follow suit on a couple of yours.

Thanks Dan. Go for it! Many of the updates I've made are based on design ideas I saw on my favorite blogs. It also helps to have a hearty appetite for plugins.
