Blackberry, WordPress & A Llama

This post is mainly something I’m posting so I can test out the WordPress for Blackberry application.

I installed it upon it’s release but still haven’t published anything with it – so I’m doing that now.

And he kept his word.

Peep the video:

Hopefully.

Anyhow, I just wanted to give you guys a quick update, since many thought I was M.I.A and a few started putting my pic on milk cartons. I’m still here, just busy – but things are calming down again, so I’ll post more often.

Also, one more thing:
