Congratulations, Lady of Shame

Just read the< a href=http://www.shamelady.com>Shamelady</a> news. That’s awesome. I made a longer post about it on http://www.pdxbars.com You should go there and write reviews of <a href=http://www.pdxbars.com>Portland Bars</a> that you like.

PDXbars II – Things for me to watch.

I’ve been closely monitoring the traffic to my Portland Bar site, and it seems that Nocturnal is definitely a sought after destination. I’m curious how I’ll be doing for other bars, such as Berbatis Pan, Dante’s, and other well known PDX bars. I’m also pleased that every unique visitor spends some quality time, averaging at […]

There are only 3 million citizens in […]


I am building a local directory of PDX bars. I’ve build a solid foundation for traffic/search optimization (see my article on using MOD_REWRITE), and hopefully will have displaced citysearch which currently dominates results pages of google and yahoo when searching for information about a specific bar. One thing I’m building is the ability for promoters/managers/bar […]

Designing Business Cards

I’ve been designing my business cards for my Portland Web Design Company today. I have not designed anything for print in quite some time, it’s been interesting trying to figure out a good uncluttered layout that contains all of the necessary information. I’m trying to keep my branding consistent with my web properties without overshadowing […]
