Another week, another weekly roundup… But before we jump into the links, I just wanted to let you a heads up about something… In case you haven’t noticed, FiveCentNickel has been loading somewhat slowly recently. This is primarily due to an overloaded webhost, so I’ve decided to ditch my shared hosting account and move to a new host with a dedicated server. I’ve already been working on migrating some of my personal sites, and sometime over the weekend I hope to move both FiveCentNickel and Raising4Boys. So… Don’t worry if you see strange things afoot. All will be normal (and then some!) before you know it. And with that, lets get to the links…
