Relaunch of JaredConnell.com Homepage

I have recently relaunched the homepage of JaredConnell.com to use a new CMS.  I was previously using Drupal and found it too cumbersome and hard to use.  I didn’t like how obtuse it was and how it was so complicated to perform simple tasks and it was not organized very well for new users to get acquainted with the system.  I believe that it is a very powerful script and that it could be of great use to me in the future but for now I just want to be able to get all my sites up and running and write content for them as easily as possible and have them somewhat standard as to how I create and manage them.  I don’t want to divulge too much information on what CMS and plugins I run because of security concerns and for now I haven’t yet completely decided on what I will run across all my sites for various purposes.  I am still experimenting with different CMS platforms, plug ins, and third party services and I will comment on them in the future.  So for now go to JaredConnell.com for my main website that has a list of all my sites, apps, and select clients.

Las Vegas News and Information Blog

Since I was born and raised in the City of Sin, it has come to fascinate me.  As such I have recently created a new blog site that will allow myself as well as others to keep up on the latest news and information about the city.  I feel like I am a great person to provide this news as I am in the city everyday as I live and thrive in it.  I can tell the locals as well as the visitors the latest news as it happens and will continue to do so as my continued interest in the city grows and as I take on and complete more and more projects related to Las Vegas, the city that raised me.

If you would like to keep up on the latest Las Vegas related news, visit my new news blog and site, LasVegasNews.visitorsguidelasvegas.com

Salad Fingers Theories

For the past few weeks and months I have somehow been mesmerized by this strange series of cartoon videos online that goes by the name Salad Fingers.  It is so strange and odd to me that I have spent hours trying to figure out what exactly the meaning behind the videos are.  I have come across some talk on the internet and watched the entire series of videos over and over again in order to try and get a hold on this strange cartoon.

So in order to catalog and document some of the more popular beliefs as well as the ones that I feel are the most plausible, I have created a website that will allow people to comment on what they think about my conclusions.  If you wish to talk about the strange Salad Fingers videos, please visit my new site, salad-fingers-theories.jaredconnell.com.

Jared Connell’s Twitter Name

Although I don’t tweet as often as I post to other social networking sites, I still use Twitter sometimes.  My twitter name is @connell_jared so please go ahead and add me.  I don’t really know that many people who use Twitter so I mainly use it to follow people and brands that I like and am a fan of.  I have some followers but who knows if they belong to people who really read the tweets of people they follow or the majority of them are just bots and my tweets are going into the oblivion of the internet, LOL.  But anyways if you’d like to follow me on twitter or just check out some of the boring tweets I post, my name is @connell_jared.  Yes, I know it doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue but everything else was taken.
