Making the rules better

069/365 - Making A ListImage by angelamaphone via Flickr

I am going to start posting here regularly again. I am going to expand it to include quotes I like, must see movies, must hear songs, must read books and of course new rules. Also, I accept rules and give credit if you would like to contribute. Even if you don't have a hard set rule but an idea, I usually can make it into a rule and give credit via a link to your blog, twitter, or whatever you like. That goes for quotes and the other must see items. Feel free to email at with you ideas.

Also I am going to move the whole thing to WordPress self hosted. I did it with my other blog, BuckDaddy Blog and I think I have learned how to not mess it up.
