Yesterday, one of my site's pages (not this site) was featured on Reddit. The front page of Reddit. Unfortunately, I had no idea what was going on until, by chance, I happened over to the site to view the day's traffic stats in the dashboard. I was then greeted by the wonderful message... Bandwidth Limit Has Been Exceeded This seemed crazy odd because this site usually has only about 250-300 page views per day, but fortunately for me...the site is hosted through a reseller plan of … [Read more...] about Reddit Hug of Death
Bede...what..?! Bedemon is a band, or recording project if you will, that I've been a part of for the past 9 years. As I mentioned on my About page, I'm not only a huge fan of hard rock and metal, but I've also been known to rock the mic over the years. Since many of you (i.e., most of you) have probably never heard of this band before, I'll give you a quick backstory... Bedemon was originally formed in 1973 by members of Pentagram.

My name is Craig Junghandel [yoong-hondel]. I am a 39 year old dad, husband, web developer and aspiring IM badass. My love affair with the internet began back in the late 90's, when I acquired my first Windows PC. It was also at this time that I decided the internet was going to be my vehicle to making millions.

I had been an … [Read more...] about An introduction
This brainchild was born out of need to share my experiences, thoughts, questions and ideas with anyone who will listen. Well... that, and I just enjoy blogging. And building websites. :D Most specifically though, I wanted a place where I could maintain a journal of ideas and insights while navigating through my life as an aspiring web entrepreneur. I may not be the most successful, or the savviest of web guys, but I feel my musings may be of interest to some. In addition, I hope to … [Read more...] about The purpose of this site
After a few months of thinking about launching a personal blog for myself, I've finally made it happen. :) So, what was it that took me so long to decide..? Well... probably the biggest holdup was my inability to settle upon a domain name for the site.

Oh sure... I came up with … [Read more...] about So it begins
