Hi, readers! First, I want to thank you for taking the time to read this post.  It’s not common for a seasoned internet veteran like you to stop by an unknown blog that most likely won’t take off in the internet world.  But you’ve done it.  Hopefully, if you like what you see after a few posts, then you’ll become a regular visitor, tell your friends, and the site will grow!  But it all starts with you.  You control the fate of my blog.  Its your choice.

Anyways, this is how the posts are going to go around here.  Every day, I am going to post about a website that should be useful to you in some way.  It could be an undiscovered web start up, or a tried-and-true website that got an overhaul.  If it’s big on the net it’s big here.  A special post on this site will be called the Saturday Night Five, a list of the five best things in a category, such as the Top 5 news reader clients, or the Top 5 alternatives to Google search.  More special features will be added as the blog gets more popular
