It’s Thanksgiving time for all of you in the US, and while I’m not there, it’s going to be an exceptionally slow week across the Internet, including foXnoMad and my other sites. That being the case, I’m taking the opportunity to work behind the scenes and enjoy a mini-break this week. foXnoMad tends to follow a US holiday schedule since many of you happen to be there – but before you run out the door from work, I’d appreciate you taking a moment to help support foXnoMad on Facebook.

The Ultimate Tech Guide For Travelers Coming Next Week
The first of several ebooks I’ll be releasing over the next few months will be out next week. The Ultimate Tech Guide For Travelers will be more than just digital text however – it’s a living and breathing ebook that will be alive like no other. Those of you interested to learn more (and win a free copy) can do so on my aforementioned Facebook page.
New Logo For Tech Guide For Travel
My friend Erickson Foster who designed foXnoMad’s new logo a few months ago brought his creative talents to my Tech Guide For Travel site. Check out the top of the page for the spiffy new logo and header.
More Site Tweaks And Changes Coming
To say I like keeping busy even when I’m relaxing is an understatement. You’ll notice a few tweaks to the sidebar that are slowly being rolled out and an ebook store that will be coming soon as well. There will also be a mobile version of foXnoMad in the next day or so to make it easier to read from your iPhone or other mobile devices.
A few more changes in the works include:
- Better navigation of recent posts, most comments posts, and individual posts categories.
- Organizing posts so they can be searched by country.
Once I wrap up these projects I’ll be moving at a faster pace (physically) and heading to Cyprus, Syria, and a few other nearby countries. In the meantime I’d love to hear any upcoming travel plans you may have for Thanksgiving or otherwise wherever in the world you happen to be.
Love the new ebook logo! Sleek! Enjoy a little downtime and Happy American Thanksgiving! (I’m Canadian, so we were thankful a few weeks ago…)Cheers!
Thanks! Erickson did a good job of bringing out the geekiness visually 🙂
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Anil!
Thanks Vinny, hope you have a good one 🙂
I totally forgot it was Thanksgiving – Canadian as well, really looking forward to the e-book.
I did too to be honest but I think Facebook reminded me. It was a nice little surprise to know I could take it a bit easy this week…
Have a great Thanksgiving holiday and mini break! Love the new logos!
I look forward to seeing how you change the site – I’m considering a redesign of mine too for 2011.
I’m really excited for your ebook – happy to promote it to my audience; plus I can’t wait to read it! You are my goto guy for techie travel!
Finally – when will you be in Syria and surrounding area? I’m heading to Jordan in January and Lebanon in Feb…will you be around?
Thanks Sherry – the finishing touches are being done on the design and once it’s ready will definitely get in touch. I’m hoping to be in Syria sometime next week but my plans have been pushed back a bit by working on some new projects. I’m in the Middle East until May though and am in Turkey right now. Jordan and Lebanon are on my list for the next few months – would love to meet up at one of those points!
I’m already a fan of yours on FB!!! 🙂
Can’t wait to see your Ebook, how exciting. Love the logo.
I appreciate that Andi!
Hey Anil! New tech logo looks good but is it just me or does the right side of the full header on the site look like a phallic symbol…
Enjoy your Thanksgiving
I guess it kinda does now that you mention it…hmm…
looking forward to the ebook – sounds interesting! 🙂 happy thanksgiving.
Thanks Nathan, have a good (Swedish) Thanksgiving too!
How’d the mini-break go? Looks like you’ve been busy. Can’t wait to read the Tech Guide for Travelers e-book.
Not so well I’m afraid. Had server and site issues, I think they got cranky and didn’t want me away! All fixed now…maybe New Year will be a bit quieter… 🙂
How was your Thanksgiving?
I like the revamped archives page and overall changes on the website (which are a lot given that I’m visiting after a long time).
Oh sorry, I’m offering some unsolicited advice: If I am browsing a post (this one, for example), you used to have “previous” and “next” buttons. Now they are gone… So unless I click from the reader, I have to go to archives page to get older entries – I am not sure if enough people can do that. 🙂
Hi Priyank, I’ll be sure to add the tweak. I just tried adding the code now but the theme wasn’t digesting it perfectly :/
