* Knowledge of WordPress administration, understanding the elements of that system and how to integrate the design into a working theme
* An ability to produce appropriate sketches, wireframes, navigation models

Dean Koontz: Lost Souls

This is the fourth book in the Frankenstein series, by Dean Koontz. I am going to be entirely honest here, he should have stopped at three. The first three were amazing, and very well done, this one stinks. I am having a hard time getting through it. Granted it is setting us up for a whole another set of books in the series, but it is just awful. No excitement at all. It is humorous, I will give it that, with a whole new set of characters, but really just boring. The fifth book, or number 2 book in this new set, will be out very soon. I hope it will be better than this one.

Make Money With Sidetick Social Network

OK, I have other sites that claim you can make money from social networking, like People String, and Yuwie. However, these were mainly useless and I didn't stay long. Now I have discovered Sidetick. I have been there just a few days now, and I really like it. It is like Facebook only you get paid. There are a lot of people who have said they have been paid. I assume the site earns its revenue from paid advertising, like many other sites. The only negative I have found so far is that sometimes it is very slow. Be sure to read the TOS because they have age limitations, and some country restrictions you will want to know about. Check it out, and start getting paid to have fun~
