Turkey Sandwiches and Football

That post title should give you a pretty good idea how I’m spending the remainder of the weekend. Seriously, is there anything better than left over turkey sandwiches after a Thanksgiving feast?

Before we get to the roundup, a heads up on what I think is a phenomenal offer.

On Black Friday, HostGator is offering 50%-80% off any web hosting package. HostGator has been my host for nearly three years and I couldn’t be happier. If you’ve ever considered starting your own blog, this is a great time to start!

The sale begins at 12:01am CST on Friday, and I’m told the best deals will be offered between 5.01am and 9.00am CST. Check out the various hosting packages here.
