I decided to fire up the blog – but don’t get all excited or anything and expect regular posting, k? Although I do have a few ideas in the hopper for answering common questions…
However, I couldn’t contain my excitement over Rowboat Media being chosen as a DoubleMule Certified Thesis Designer! Now, for those not in the know, this could sound a bit like a backhanded compliment. To wit, my own dear mother’s response to the news:
“Uh – Congratulations – we think. Is it legal to be a Double Mule one of those things? Should we tell the family or keep it quiet? A double mule?? Is that anything like a pair of jackasses? If you are happy and elated with this awesome accomplishment, we will be happy and elated too. Do we need to be on standby to bail you out of jail? The English we speak doesn’t always speak too highly of mules, however, some stubbornness is a good thing for one to succeed. We don’t really have a clue what this means but will take your word for it that it is a really GOOD thing to have.” – Mom
In the words of the inestimable Mules themselves, DoubleMule Certified Thesis Designers are “a collection of peer-reviewed freelancers and design firms that you, as a prospective client, can use to better select a peer-reviewed, proven Thesis “superstar” to handle your [website]’s unique design requirements…[c]reating a “best in the business” Thesis Designer section – for FREE – means the Mules will not be influenced by anything but the quality, creativity, and coding skills of the listed designers.”
What makes it such a huge honor to me is the quality of the OTHER designers on the list – I’d be honored just to spit-shine their keyboards! This lets me know it’s no small thing.
OK – shameless self-promotion and child-like excitement over…
