We’re back in town, and recharged. Happy New Year to all of you dear readers, and thanks to Anna for her continued great posts. Hoegarden, you were right. Avalanche danger in Utah was through the roof! Needless to say, we didn’t venture hors de piste.
We’re putting our real estate hats back on (big bummer that it is, but Momma needs a new dress so…) and hope to provide the goods in 2009. We hope to see you back to theFrontSteps often. Don’t forget to send in those tips, ask those questions, and show your colors, so that we can continue to do what we do for you this coming year.
Happy New Year to you all! Let’s pray 2009 doesn’t go like 2008.
Back to normal posting on 1/5/09.
Welcome to the new look of theFrontSteps. Although I was hoping to change the site up completely, I learned a lot from my attempt on .ORG to steer me into keeping things very much the same, but changing servers to allow more flexibility on future features, posts, and anything else.
The first thing I have to say is a HUGE shout out and thank you to Reggie Nicolay at My Tech Opinion. Without his help, it’d be another couple weeks before we were able to go “live”. Do me a favor and click through to his site and check out all that they do.
A major change you’ll notice…advertisements.
Click some ads and help me put shoes on my kids’ feet, and food on the table…can’t say that. (After all I am a Realtor and if you haven’t noticed the market is in the toilet, so they’re telling me, but I still haven’t seen it.)
The site is still technically under construction and there are a lot of little things that still need to be done. So don’t be surprised if you run into a bug from time to time, and please don’t hesitate to let me know (email@example.com).
That’s it. I hope you like it. I hope you come back. And I hope you tell all of your friends and family. Now if you’ll excuse me, after all of this, I need a cocktail!
Although it may look exactly the same to you, behind the scenes theFrontSteps is going through a massive redevelopment project and it’s going to take some time. Thanks for your patience, browse and converse on the current posts at will, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns regarding San Francisco real estate.
(Don’t be surprised if a little tech gremlin makes things blow up, or the power goes out from time to time during this project either.)
Thanks to Fluj for putting up some good content while I was away! I’m (almost) ready to go with some new posts (need to figure out how to perfectly resize photos, and a few other things on this here Mac.) In the meantime, relax with a cocktail, I’ll be back at it by Monday (hopefully).
I’m having a Bombay Sapphire and Tonic.
What are you having?
Getting to know the San Francisco real estate market is (relatively) easy, getting to know a new iMac is something altogether daunting. Have no fear, I will prevail and theFrontSteps will be running at full speed come August 25th or so.
Yup, I bought a new iMac, this one to be exact, and there is lots to learn and lots to set up (particularly the annoying little MLS not working on Safari thing), and I (alex) am leaving on vacation… proper vaction. I expect Fluj will do some posts while I’m away, so go easy on the guy, have fun, be civil, and thanks for all the great tips on what to buy when it comes to a Mac. (I got the iPhone too, and will certainly be setting up blog posting from it, so that will be cool.)
Summertime…….. and I’m outta here!
(p.s. Don’t be surprised if I do a post here and there, so make sure to either subscribe to theFrontSteps via email, or set up your RSS feed so you’ll know when new content is on the site.)
(p.p.s. I might be on Twitter tweeting, so feel free to check that out if you can’t resist.)
