Bonus points to you if you catch the cheesy 80s song reference!
The backstory: as you all know, I recently published a children's ebook on Amazon (insert shameless plug here) that my brother Nik illustrated. And thank you to those of you who were kind enough to buy and review it (and future thanks for those of you who still plan to.)
Now, for those five more sales we hope to generate, I thought we'd get a website. My brother, who is generally less tech savvy than I am (or so I thought), assured me that a certain company had a do-it-yourself website builder that was pretty simple. I've done simple design and, in the past, simple code, and so I thought, no problem. I won't name names, but let's say this company sounds like Mo Maddy, which is exactly what I found myself feeling when I tried to design my site with this "simple" program.
Either pain in the ass is the new simple, or I am less savvy than I thought I am. (Stop snickering.)
So I reached out for a few pointers from one of my best friends, fellow blogger Mike D, who blew me away by offering to design the entire site for me.

Is he an awesome web designer or what?
He has been super patient with me and I asked him to think of some suitable (albeit way, way not good enough) favor I could do him as a small token of my big appreciation.
That, my friends, is what Mike D has done for me lately.
And that is why he gets his own homemade lolcat. That, I can do.
