Hello there. I see you finally made it through all the nooks and crannies of the internet to find your here to my blog.
For those of you that are stopping by for the first time, my name is James Pegram and this is my little slice of the blogosphere. Basically I started this blog to have a place to rambling about various things, sometimes they make sense, most times probably not.
A little about me. I’m just your average guy who spends way to much time on the internet. I live in Albemarle, NC (where??). Basically we’re out in the middle of NC farm country about a half hour NE of Charlotte. It’s the home of American Idol 5 fifth place finisher and current country music star Kellie Pickler. I’ve spent the past 13 years working for First Union -> Wachovia -> Wells Fargo, up until a few weeks ago when they decided my services were no longer needed. Now, I’m a full-time internet mogul which allows me to maintain my own schedule and work from home.
I’ve dabbled in the internet for years but nothing ever really took until back in January of 2005 while watch the auditions for season 4 of American Idol and having witnessed the audition of this cute blond country girl (and proclaiming her the winner right then) I started a fan site called Carrie Fans. Now, five years later, Carrie Underwood is a country music SUPERSTAR and Carrie Fans is the largest dedicated discussion forum on the net. Currently the site has over 2 million posts, right at 10k members and gets around 35,000 page views a day.
I also operate another forum for Stampin’ Up! crafters and demonstrators. Stampin Addicts as conceived in an attempt to help my wife (she’s the demonstrator) and her friends from around the country keep connected. It quickly overflowed to the rest of the stampin community and is currently on it’s way to being a prosperous community.
Besides these two site I also do a fair amount of PHP/MySQL development, mostly for my own benefit and from time to time I’ll build a website for someone. When not in front of the computer I’m usually still online playing Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4. My XBLA account name is RustedBucket. Sometimes I canbe found on one of the local lakes and occasionally I’ll get tired of the internet and do some real work around the house, but that doesn’t happen too often.. lol
So that’s it really. Plenty more stories to tell but those are for another time. For now, thanks for stopping by and feel free to drop me a line.
