I moved back here over 2 years ago and it amazes me how difficult it is to live and work here. I tried finding work in my field, but couldn’t believe that I was offered $10K less than what I made back east. Especially when the cost of living back east is so much lower. Makes no sense.
The templates on WordPress.com are much nicer than most I’ve seen. Let’s hope their blogging software/application is much better than others I’ve toyed with.
What do all of you think so far? Those of you of course that have been blogging with WordPress.com and several others?
I really can’t understand how I could easily make $45K for what I do back east. But here, where the cost of living is double what it is back east, they want to pay me $32-35K for the same type of position??
And to think people wonder why I’d rather suffer through freelancing. It pays better even if the jobs are few and far between. And I get to keep my sense of pride and dignity!
I just received an email from a family member asking what I thought of the Logitech® QuickCam Fusion and whether or not he’d made a good purchase.
Although I’ve never purchased this web cam, it was one of the items I considered when purchasing my Logitech® QuickCam® Communicate™ STX.
I’ve received compliments on the clarity during video conferencing and online chatting with my family and friends. I’ve also taken pics with the cam and they’re not bad for a 1.3 megapixel camera. Matter of fact the pic you see on my blog was taken with my Logitech® QuickCam Communicate STX.
So it’s really a matter of preference and cost. It does seem like the Fusion is a better purchase, but again it does cost more. Having just read the comparisons on Logitech’s website, the Fusion may be a future purchase!
Other review sites on the Logitech® QuickCam Fusion:
I found this review on this site Webcam Ratings:
“It’s not common that we find such excellent reviews on a personal Web site, but that’s the case here. Frank Harell, who is the Webmaster for several sites and is obviously a Webcam enthusiast, tests 24 current Webcams, more than any other reviewer we found. In addition, he’s the only reviewer that includes a set of standardized test photos in various lighting conditions for each camera. The sample photos are compared to a control photo made with a digital SLR. Currently, the Logitech QuickCam Fusion is the best Webcam overall, with smooth video, good face-tracking and very good images. The Logitech QuickCam Pro for Notebooks is the best portable choice, though Harell warms high frame rates can be a drain on your notebook’s processing power. The Logitech QuickCam Communicate STX is Harell’s pick under $50.”
The Logitech® QuickCam Fusion delivers true 1.3 megapixel images, superior video quality, and echo-free audio – all in a high-end design that was named PC Magazine’s Editor’s Choice in February 2006.*
Yes, that’s right I’m a freelancer.
If you’re wondering why I have a blog you’ll have to come back in a few weeks to get your answer. ; )
See you then!
It was a great day! I worked on 4 new templates and 3 redesigns.
New customers get a 3-page site with info about their shop, images, and a map of their location. I took the time to simplify the main template for ease of use cutting the time to 30 mins to complete a customers site.
