Year End 2014

It seems that every year I write a blog post that goes through all of the stats about my life online.   So, I went to last years posts and..... didn't find anything. So I went to the year before and ..... nothing.  I'm sure I've writing posts about the end of each year but for some reason, I can't find even one of them. Oh well, I'm sure it happened at some point so here we go with the things that happened in my life on the internet.

We will start with Youtube.  Here are my top most viewed videos in 2013 and 2014 because I guess I didn't do this last year.  So, coming in at #1 was a video I took while going on a zip line in the Snake River Canyon with a Leadership Group in 2013.

Coming in at number 2 is .....  Andy's Prom Pictures!!!

Coming in 3rd place, which was a surprise, is the Carters doing the Harlem Shake.  That was in 2013 by the way.

And finally, even though this did not make the top three, I'm most proud of this video that we made with Jive in 2013. It is a promotional video to advertise the Jive performance in the Spring.  It was a lot of fun to make and learn how to produce a "real" video.

Ok, that is it for Youtube for 2013 and 2014.

Now to some of my new favorite websites from 2014.

I have been watching some online videos to help me learn about how to use a MacMini that I bought this year.  On one of those videos the youtuber mentioned a couple of sites that would be great for building an intro for videos.  He mentioned a site called FIVERR.  So, I checked it out and found a bunch of really cool stuff you can buy for just 5 BUCKS!!!!!   So, I decided to try it out.  My first try was to have someone create a logo for me for my webstore called  I sent off the request and this is what I got back for $5 bucks.

Not bad but not great.  So, I submitted another one to animate a logo for the company that I work at Integrated Technologies.  This is what I received back for $5.00.

Now that was awesome!!! So, I decided to send off a request to have our family made into a caricature for our Christmas Card.  This is what I received back for only $15.00

We loved it so we printed it up about 30 times and sent it off to all of our friends and family this year.  So, if you want a fun website, check out
