Finally am digging into a book that my Mom gave me

Hey, it only took me 19 years to start it.

It's really heavy with information – I have to take it slow to really get everything they're saying. I'm only starting on the first chapter (page 7) and have picked up so much! (Granted, there was an introduction that was XXXI pages!)

Two of my favorite parts so far that I've learned are:

1. There are 2 ways to think of creating – one is sublimation and the other is self-actualization. With sublimation, you're taking your illicit dreams and are creating them in a place that's safe. (For example, if you dream that you have the perfect plan to rob a bank, you can write a story based on that plan and get the excitement that you crave from that and NOT go to jail for actually robbing a bank.) For self-actualization, it's the pure expression of your highest aspirations.

2. Meditate – clear your mind to create. I have always found my most creative times are just before I go to sleep and just before I wake up, so I'm TOTALLY down with doing this. I've begun keeping a creative journal of these times so I can pull from it when I'm looking for inspiration.

Judging from my first blog post in January of 2008, I first started using WordPress at version 2.3 "Dexter".

The new version, "Smith" (3.9) is pretty snazzy. Thanks for all the good times, WordPress!

Here’s another interesting article from Litmus.com on Gmail’s “Promotions”…

Here's another interesting article from Litmus.com on Gmail's "Promotions" tab. It's going to look more like Pinterest.

Nice idea – and a good opportunity for businesses to get a better first impression from their recipients than just the "from" and "subject" text.

I am looking forward to seeing this in my own inbox, but for now it's in beta testing and I am not a part of that group.

"jr_loaded" is the answer to my question tonight. By setting the action to hook after wp is loaded, my additional sidebar will be listed after the parent theme sidebars. (in the back end)

Very nice.

Thanks John P Bloch!

How do you register a sidebar in a plugin without screwing up the pre-existing registered sidebars? (The ordering of the sidebar registrations, rather than the assigned ID, determines the sidebar data.)
