Howdy, Folks! Remember me?
It’s so weird posting articles here. It’s like walking through the old office that’s been hollowed out, and seeing a bunch of ghosts from years past standing around the water cooler having conversations. Everything is starting to look a bit neglected. And look, there’s even a thin coat of dust on all of the upholstery and empty keg barrels?
Anyways, I’m here to announce something very cool today:
The Chowderhead Banner Design service doors are now open to the public!
I finally graduated from the University of Microsoft Paint! Just in case you don’t remember how shoddy my Photoshop skills were at one point, have a look back HERE.
In the meantime, because I’m trying to build a sweet-ass portfolio, the first 25 people to contact me about having a wicked new banner designed for their website or blog will get it done for this one-time, low, low price of absolutely free. Well, almost free. If you mention me or any one of my websites, social media pages, or services on your blog, we’ll call it an even swap.

Random Fun Fact:

The whole venture began with a banner design request from fellow blogger bud, Amy Reese, who is currently in the process of transitioning sites right now, which you can read more about HERE. Anyways, she contacted me about a month ago and asked if I would create a banner for her new site.
Here’s how it went down:
TRANSLATION: “Dude, I said I wanted it to look like Madonna – not one of the Olsen Twins after a three week Meth binge. You’re fucking fired.
Yes, I know, Amy. *headslap*
Anyways, even if you’re just a casual blogger, a little ‘curb appeal’ goes a long way in attracting readership. Tricked out websites are really fun to look at, and I’d be more than happy to help out by putting the right half of my brain to work for you.
