Superbowl Runday!

That special time of year has come around once again, the time of year when most Americans embark on a day’s journey of countless chicken wings, more beers than they can count, and sitting on the couch.

In ramping up my website and personal brand, I have grown unnecessarily concerned with what the critics may think.
