Welcome to MCPD!

So, here we are.  Three years later and we’ve got our third iteration/redesign of motorcopblog.

I’m honored to be a part of the FRN.tv crew and I’d like to thank my good buddy, Happy Medic, for doing the lion’s share of nerd work.  And I say that with all due respect!  I would also be remiss without mentioning one Thaddeus Setla for his invitation to join his motley crew of misfits at FRN.  Gentlemen, I look forward to joining you in world domination.  (That is why we’re doing this, right?)

I also must thank my new friends at BlogRocket.  Although we’ve just met and our burgeoning friendships are but a week old, you were all extremely helpful in getting some kinks worked out.  I look forward to the future and growing both our respective corners of the interwebs and our community.

You’ll notice a lot of difference between the new MCPD and the old.  I’ve switched blogging platforms from Blogger to WordPress.  You’ll excuse the growing pains and the inevitable tinkering that I will be doing to get everything dialed in.

A couple of new features are the tabs at the top.  One is The Crossover Show.  You’ll (eventually) find all the shows catalogued here and available for your perusal.  Another tab is Who is MC.  I’ve actually broken down and embedded a photo of my mug in the post.  In the near future, I’ll be adding a Glossary tab in which you can check out some of the lingo I throw around in these posts.  If you don’t know what I’m yammering about, odds are it’ll be defined here.  Also, don’t be alarmed at the address bar.  You can still reach the blog using motorcopblog.com!  When I post links on Facebook and Twitter, you’ll see motorcop.firstrespondersnetwork.tv.  They are one and the same.

A final note of change: I’ve received confirmation that swag is ready to roll.  You’ll be able to get the MC logo and the SoulCrusher logo on your choice many different T-shirt designs and/or coffee mugs.  I just need to figure out the widgety plug-in to link to the right place!

That wraps up the inaugural (and hopefully final) redesign welcome post.  Enjoy yourselves and play nice.  I’d love to get some feedback on your opinions as per usual.

Cheers…

MC

  1. Awesome!

    I’m just seeing the soul crusher t-shirts for the first time. I love it! Maybe I missed it, but did you mention who won the unofficial design contest?

    • There was but one entry. And by that I mean only one person took me seriously (so much more of my life makes sense now). At any rate, Mr. Rick Wirthlin and his compatriot I know only as Bohan (I picture him as a Viking) were the kind gentlemen that got the SoulCrusher empire on to its illustrious beginning!

  2. I recently joined Blog Rocket too – it’s great to meet you! So glad you’re having success switching to Word Press. I made the switch a while ago and although it was overwhelming at first, it was worth every painstaking effort to figure it out. 🙂
