Goodbye, farewell, aloha

So, this is it, the last entry before my wedding. Apparently, my fiancée doesn’t believe me when I say I wouldn’t be surfing Disney sites or posting to the Main Street Gazette while we are on our honeymoon and, to be honest, she’s probably right, so the computer is staying at home for the next two weeks boys and girls. But, I didn’t want to leave all of you high and dry on the blogging front while I was away, so I thought I would leave you with a few blogs and sites I like to follow, along with some notes about the site.

2719 Hyperion – If you are like me, you read this site everyday, so this one doesn’t come as a surprise. However, if you haven’t been following 2719 Hyperion since the beginning, I suggest going back and taking a look at articles you may have missed. There is a fountain of knowledge in those pages just waiting to be unlocked.

Imaginerding – The brothers George and Andrew have created a site so full of Disney history that it is definitely on my must reads everyday. Between the amazing details they find and the growing list of Disney books they report on (most of the books they reviewed that I didn’t already possess have been immediately added to wish lists available to family and friends who are already asking about birthdays and Christmas) these Disney Gurus keep us all in the know.

Netcot – This site is not a blog, but it is my most trusted site for news. Netcot also has an interesting download section, and a community forum that is second to none. Rock On!

If We Can Dream It... - A fabulous site for those of us in search of, or on a quest to find, little pieces of forgotten, or unseen, Disney Details.

that Disney girl – While not specifically tied to any theme park, that Disney girl, looks at what the daily lives of the Disney fanatical look like, what we think about, and how we handle the world.

Grumpy's Hollow – Remember all those things you’ve always thought, or you’ve ever wanted to say about Disney but were afraid to? Well, Grumpy’s Hollow pulls no punches and tells it like it is while giving some interesting tips, trivia, and great photographs.

So, there you have it, a look at some of my must views everyday. I know I am going to have a lot of reading to catch up on after I get back, but I will also have a lot to share with everyone too.

Just a few notes before I go. I have been asked if it is okay to use the photographs from Main Street Gazette for personal use. I have no problems if you want to use the pictures for guides you are putting together for your own personal trips, desktop backgrounds, or to just to hold onto to look at later. In fact, I don’t even mind you are would like to use them for your site, however, it would be much appreciated if, while using them for your site or anything else that people might see, if you would give credit where credit is due. After all, the World was created for all of us, and it is for all of us to share.

Also, I am pretty mechanically inclined, and understand computers remarkably well, but I have never been good at creating images/logos on the computer. I am looking for someone who would be willing to help me create a logo for the Main Street Gazette, as every place I have looked on the web costs money that I don’t have. I have some great ideas, but I have been unable to execute a workable copy. So if you are an art student looking for some practice, or a designer with a love of Disney, I would appreciate the help and I will shout your name from the top of my blog (giving credit where credit is due after all). You can email me while I am gone, and I will get in touch with you when I return.

Okay, my friends, that’s it for now. I hope you have a Magical two weeks, and I’ll see you on the other side, after my wedding, my honeymoon, and my very first visit to Disneyland.
