2019-10-26-SA @ 4:43 PM CST – A new official MUDPIX MAGAZINE account has been set up on Issuu.com and there you will be able to preview all publications that this website uploads there. MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1 can now be previewed there. Also the issue is now available for free download in pdf format. Just check the home page. I am planning to start a new Photo Of The Day series starting on New Year’s Day in 2020. So hopefully I will get to spend some time making some scheduled posts for that during November and December this year.
2019-10-26-SA @ 3:53 PM CST – EXCITING NEWS!! I’ve finally gotten off my ass and finished MUDPIX MAGAZINE – DEMO 1. I’m in process of uploading it to this website right now. Stay tuned.
2019-10-26-SA @ 11:22 AM CST – Three new pages have been added to the site. There is the Toolbelt page which is where I plan on listing all of the apps and software I use to stay productive and produce content. Next there is the Locations page which is where I’ll provide a listing of all the primary places I like to do my outdoor photography. And last is the Gear page. There I’ll show my current camera plus other electronic gear I use in my digital life. All of these pages are currently under construction, so clicking the links I just provided would only waste your time, so I don’t recommend doing that just yet. I’ll make another update as work progresses on these new website additions. Just letting everyone know about the new content coming.
2019-10-22-TU @ 11:11 PM CST – I’m trying to make more effort at connecting more with the blogging world. I’m searching for more blogs to follow. Some of them will show up in an auto-populated list on this website, and also the latest posts I like in the worpress ecosystem will start appearing on site (as soon as I get around to adding the widget). Just another way I’m working to make this website the beat it can be with interesting content to explore… because sharing is caring right?
2019-10-20-SU @ 11:39 PM CST – Looks like YouTube Movies is stepping up it’s selection of free films to watch (with ads of course). Lots of movie fan favorites to choose from.
2019-10-20-SU @ 6:17 PM CST – Just took a dive through my Google Keep notes. I’ve got a lot of things in there I need/want to dig out and post on this website. In due time of course.
2019-10-20-SU @ 2:37 PM CST – Ok so I went over to YouTube to find a video for a song I heard a few minutes ago (Tones and I – Dance Monkey) on MixCloud from one of DJ Wayne Jones’ mix sets, but got distracted by a video produced by Mister Domestic for a tutorial on how to make Scandinavian Folded Fabric Star Ornaments. Well I haven’t really said it before on this website, but I’ve been a crafter of sorts since around the age of 10. These stars looked interesting. So I may have to try my hand at making a few… since because yesterday I was thinking some new homemade Christmas ornaments would be nice to add to my collection. I was impressed by Mister Domestic’s easy instructions. His YouTube channel is on my radar to become on of my Featured YouTube Channels. By the way here’s the link to the official Tones and I – Dance Monkey video if you’re interested to check it out. It’s a pretty cool song. Just for extra, here is the link to the Tones and I YouTube channel.
2019-10-20-SU @ 2:37 PM CST – A new widget has been added in mudpix.com’s site layout for experimental use (for now – continued use pending outcome of commenters actions). Those familiar with wordpress will know it as the “Recent Comments” widget. It will highlight those who are kind enough to leave feedback about content posted here at MUDPIX MAGAZINE. Yes that’s correct, comments are welcome on posts where commenting is enabled, however be aware that comments are strictly moderated to avoid spam. When you comment, a link to your recent comment will be highlighted in the list along with a link to your blog and your wordpress profile photo. Please note that only the most recent 10 comments will appear in the widget. More may be allowed in the future. You’re welcome.
2019-10-20-SU @ 1:55 PM CST – Just got a notification email from MixCloud that DJ Wayne Jones has a new Trance Podcast ep756 available. If you like trance music, click over and give it a listen.

I’m trying to get better at sharing more content. Bear with me. I hope you enjoy the podcast. I am enjoying it while getting some housework done.
2019-10-20-SU @ 1:30 PM CST – Like free ebooks? Hop over to Kurt Brindley’s website and subscribe to his email newsletter. Once subscribed you will be taken to a page on his website where you will have the option to download his book, LEAVE: And Other Stories Short And Shorter. You’ll have the options for pdf, Amazon Kindle, Nook and other formats.
2019-10-20-SU @ 1:08 PM CST – This morning I woke up and the first thing I discovered on the internet is a new EDM website I haven’t explored yet. So I decided to add a link to it here on the website… then I started searching for other edm music related sites to link to. These are already in my link list, however here’s a quick list of new links added this morning that are related to edm and trance style music (genres that have been growing on me for several years since around 2015 or before): EDM House Network, EDMTunes, LiveSets, Insomniac Events, 1001 Tracklists. I’m sure I’ll be adding lots more links and pages to this website related to edm and trance music over the coming months.
2019-10-19-SA @ 11:05 PM CST – There is a new page on site today. It’s the MMBD (MUDPIX MAGAZINE Blogroll Directory). The page contains links to other photographers websites whos work I enjoy seeing. Check them out.
2019-10-19-SA @ 9:12 PM CST – I noticed a website I was browsing today mention that it has switched all of it’s content that they would have previously posted on their blog to now be going into their website’s newsletter. This idea has sparked an interest in me to do something similar, although I don’t think I could just totally kill my blog. I have too many blogging subject interests to do that. I am thinking however (since I like to create publications) that starting a new downloadable pdf newsletter published maybe monthly or quarterly could be a good idea… or not… considering how long it’s taking me to get this magazine off and running. Stay tuned.
2019-10-19-SA @ 1:25 PM CST – If you’re an Amazon Wish List user, and if you don’t know this already, you are able to move items from one list to another one. All you have to do is create a new list, then go to one of your lists, click the menu options for any item, choose “Move” and then select which list you want to move it to. I’ve been on Amazon since 2008 and just figured that out today…
2019-10-19-SA @ 9:34 AM CST – I just discovered PhotoBlog, a place where photographers can set up a photoblog and show off their photography. It’s a community driven platform. I may want to set up my own spot over there as a separate way to gain followers of my own work. Also with just a short time of exploring the site, I’ve found my first favorite PhotoBlog, Lookagain. I will definitely spend more time in the near future exploring the PhotoBlog website. Here a link to some brief info about PhotoBlog on Crunchbase.
2019-10-19-SA @ 8:24 AM CST – Things done so far this morning: I woke up around 6 AM, dragged my ass into my office and started browsing some blogs on the internet to begin making a new blogroll page I’ve wanted to add to this website for some time… and um… that’s about it. I have some new digital art I’ve created that I want to post today, and I still need to put the finishing touches on MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. I’m also thinking about possibly getting around to some website cleanup today. Some lists really need to be moved to their own pages that are beginning to take up too much space in the layout and I need to downsize the layout a little. We’ll see how all that goes since today is Saturday… and you know I kinda like to just be lazy and not do a lot on Saturdays. It is raining today, so today might be the perfect day to get some of this work done. I’m finding it very relaxing in my office this morning with the blinds up so that I can watch it rain while working at my computer.
2019-10-15-TU @ 11:28 PM CST – Quite a few things to mention in this update tonight. First it was raining most all day. Blah fooey! I don’t exactly hate rain, but today I kinda did. I really didn’t like driving home in it this evening. My evening at home consisted of viewing Eyes Of Starry Nights, with a nice grasshopper photo taken by Thomas Peace, and eating some potatos for dinner. I decided to scope out a new blog and found I Lost My Lense Cap, a photography blog by Leyla from Texas. Her blog is full of beautiful flower photos. Make sure you check it out. It’s an instant favorite for me since I love flowers. I discovered a timelapse camera app today called Superlapse that I think I may start using quite often, but I’ve only started experimenting with it today. You can see the first timelapse video I created this evening during my drive home on my instagram page @mudpixmag. My favorite thing about the app is that it saves the original photos to my phone and they are decent enough quality that I can use them for my photography ebooks. I’ll have to stock up on some extra usb drives as I know the photos are going to pile up from using the app. I discovered a new (to me) music blog, The Remix Label. I’ll definitely be checking it out more as time permits. It looks like a great place to snatch some free mp3’s for my collection (as if I don’t already have 7,000,000,000 mp3 files as it is). If you’re wondering how I discovered the site, it was from digging around on The Internet Archive under search query edm. Work continues on MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1.
2019-10-12-SA @ 4:36 PM CST – Another 20 pages added to MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. That’s 80 pages done today. I’ve got about 35 more pages to finish the photos section of the magazine, and then some closing writing to end the issue. After that, I’ll start uploading it on site.
2019-10-12-SA @ 3:25 PM CST – Another 20 pages added to MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. That’s 60 pages done today. Don’t have much more to finish.
2019-10-12-SA @ 2:40 PM CST – Another 20 pages added to MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. That’s 40 pages done today. Getting closer to the finish.
2019-10-12-SA @ 11:46 AM CST – I’ve discovered a new (to me) music remix blog today (www.craigvanity.com). If you like remixes, I recommend to check it out. I will myself as time permits.
2019-10-12-SA @ 11:46 AM CST – This morning is dragging for me. Actually, my lazy ass is dragging… I just got back from the store with my milk and eggs. So I’m about to have breakfast… may as well say lunch, or something like that. It’s a beautiful day out today. I’m thinking of getting outdoors somewhere. We’ll see how that goes.
2019-10-12-SA @ 9:20 AM CST – Just finished adding 20 more pages to MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. Total page count now is 196 with 190 full page photos. Gotta run to the store to get some milk and eggs.
2019-10-12-SA @ 8:58 AM CST – Got up early this morning. Liked the cool air outside, but hating that winter is coming. Anyway I just sat down at my desk, and while my phone is charging am going to work on MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1 for awhile.
2019-10-10-TH @ 6:16 AM CST – Something came to mind this evening that I’m considering to host here on mudpix.com, a link exchange with other website owners with quality domains who might be interested in driving visitors to each other’s website. It’s in consideration. That’s all I will say about it for now.
2019-10-10-TH @ 12:23 AM CST – Guess who fell asleep at his desk and didn’t get any work done that he had intended? Yes it was me.
2019-10-09-WE @ 8:29 PM CST – A couple of things I forgot to mention so far in the latest updates today: (1.) I dropped my Galaxy S8+ and cracked the screen (for the 2nd time) today. I’m not happy about that. On the bright side, the phone, which is 2 years old now, still works. (2.) I have another list I’m working on which is a list of hashtags I’m following on Instagram. I’m unsure how long that list will take me to finish. I follow a ton of hashtags. (3.) Speaking of Instagram, my old account got a little NSFW, so I went private with it and created a brand new one specifically for this website. A new Instagram photo feed has been added into mudpix.com’s layout, so you can see my latest Instagram posts when you visit. You can also follow me on Instagram @mudpixmag.
2019-10-09-WE @ 8:17 PM CST – In regards to the last update below, I did actually make it into my home office, and to my desk, and powered on my laptop. So my intention at this time tonight is to add about 40 more pages to MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1, and then look around the internet for website content ideas that other people are doing on their blogs which might help to attract more visitors here to mudpix.com. Time to get to work.
2019-10-09-WE @ 7:05 PM CST – Happy hump day! I’m currently working on a new list that I’ll post to the blog soon. It’s a list that is mainly for my own personal use, however if you like free ebooks and publications from the Internet Archive at archive.org, then you may enjoy the list I’m making. It’s basically a list of ebooks I’ve seen that may be interesting that I may want to download at a later time after some further looking at. I’m also still working on MUDPIX MAGAZINE DEMO 1. I really should break out my laptop tonight and work on some pages. We’ll see how that goes I guess, but honestly after the busy day I had today, I’m really not in the mood for computer work tonight.
2019-10-05-SA @ 12:22 PM CST – A new update has been added to the Incredible IG section of the blog.
2019-09-23-MO @ 10:46 PM CST – Lot’s of link lists are being added to the website. Some links on Soundcloud, and some links to great pages on instagram. Have a look around and explore. Expect this site to grow huge over the next few weeks as more content is added. Work is still underway on MUDPIX MAGAZINE Demo 1.
2019-09-14-SA @ 9:42 PM CST – A new Around The Web category is up on the blog. It’s a new area of this website where you’ll find roundups of interesting news and articles. Plans are to post a new Around The Web once a week, probably on Saturdays or Sundays (more often if time permits).
2019-09-14-SA @ 1:41 PM CST – A new widget has been added into my website’s layout where I’ll be placing links to some news articles that I’ve read and think you may be interested in checking out. Eventually I will create an archive page for these links.
2019-06-23-SU @ 8:08 PM CST – The Index page has been updated. Also an Updates Archive is now available on the blog where you can check all of the latest and oldest updates and additions to this site.
