The DQYDJ Weekender (Week of 3/4/12)

Yeah, I know, I’ve been too lazy to fix my php on the Feedburner subscribers to the right – so it fluctuates 20 or more readers a day.  I’ll get to it… maybe even today!

A special thanks to two victims of my chain post, who were moved to answer my questions this week (Remember that whole question thing?):

Featured Links and Carnivals

We got so much article love this week I wish I hadn’t burned my Led Zeppelin lyric joke a few weeks back…

On Home Improvement and Personal Finance

Dear readers, do you care even one bit about the home improvement projects that the patriarch of this web site undertakes?

As many of you know, I purchased a house last year.  It could be best referred to as a ‘cosmetic fixer’ – livable, but on the surface such a mess that we knew we’d be changing all the finishings.  At this point, we’re almost completely done with the interior (although I have decent documentation for article purposes).  The kitchen still hasn’t been undertaken, and the sunroom is about 80% done… and there is plenty of outdoor work that needs to be done.

On a level of 1-10, how much do you all care?

    On a scale of 1 – 10, my care goes up to 11.  Actually, I’m always interested in that type of post. Although we haven’t seen this from you here, home improvement ideas are always welcome in my book….

      Wow, level 11… I better step it up. I’ll probably kick it off with a ‘what tools you need/want’ type post, then move onto some of the rooms I’ve made over. Thanks for the feedback!

    Thanks so much for the mention!  I went through my spam and didn’t see your comment there or else I would have resurrected it.

    As a renter I don’t care all that much about the home improvement projects since they aren’t really applicable to me.  They can be fun to read though so I’ll give it a 5 (ambivalent).

      Haha, 5 letters and no vowels means we end up in the spam bin quite often.

      Yeah, it might be tough to emulate any of the projects if you’re planning on moving around a lot… thanks for the feedback!
