This archive provides all updates made here at DDAVIDD.com during the month of April 2022.

You can always find the most current updates on my Updates page. It’s always best to check there first since I may not have moved some items to this archive list yet.


2022-04-27-WED @ 11:26 PM CST – In my MUDPIX OUTDOORS PHOTO EBOOKS store, I have new lower pricing on previously published photo ebooks containing my photography from West Point Lake, and Lake Harding. Some of these ebooks have been marked down because they are on schedule to be republished under my new brand, MUDPIX OUTDOORS. I also updated the links to my social media in the store.

2022-04-20-WED @ 4:35 AM CST – Collecting 355 Instagram profile url’s that you are following is not a fast acheivement, but I’ve just finished doing that. I’ve got some more to go, but I’m taking a break for awhile.

2022-04-20-WED @ 12:19 AM CST – Got called in for work tonight. So I won’t get any website work completed until another time later. That’s ok. I’m using my time at work to do something that will contribute to the directory later on. I’m gathering profile url’s on Instagram that I’m following and putting them into categories so that I can have an organized list of all the accounts I’m following.

2022-04-19-TUE @ 4:21 AM CST – New website links are getting listed in my MUDWALKER NEWSLETTER, so there will be plenty of updates in the next issue. If you haven’t already, you can get the current issue here.

2022-04-17-SUN @ 3:45 AM CST – Progress is underway to start building a website directory here on DDAVIDD.com so that I can provide links to useful and interesting websites as I discover them. It will be a simple directory, but will consist of many pages. The first section coming is an alphanumerical set of listings. Then I plan to make a section for website listings by interest. From there I will move on to creating some social media related directories, and also possibly a blog directory. I plan to hopefully get the alphanumerical pages up later tonight.

2022-04-15-FRI @ 6:30 AM CST – You don’t see it behind the scenes, but I’ve been working my ass off over the past four days to get the website relaunch started and get started rebuilding pages. Your Friday is currently my Monday. That means I have a busy busy weekend ahead. I did not get any photo editing done over the past few days while getting my website in order. I (oops) forgot to do it. So if you’re following me on Twitter where photos are getting posted, they are scheduled through to Monday the 18th of this month. When I get my next off day on Monday, I will try to remember to do some editing to keep the photo flow going. I doubt I’ll make many updates on the website this weekend but maybe I will.

2022-04-15-FRI @ 1:53 AM CST – I have posted Updates Archive 001 April 2022 to the blog. All of the updates that you see on the Updates page will be moved to their own monthly archive page throughout each month for historical purposes. These archives will be primarily created for my own use to help me maintain this website. Note that it is always best to check the Updates page first for the latest updates and news.

2022-04-15-FRI @ 1:25 AM CST – My Newsletter page is now on site. This is where you can download the current issue of my MUDWALKER NEWSLETTER.

2022-04-14-THU @ 7:04 PM CST – I have updated pages to show titles above and below featured photos. For now it’s experimental, and I will probably do it on blog post pages as well. Since the new theme I’m using on my website displays large featured images, it was bugging me not to see titles at the top of the page while browsing around, and I had to scroll down to see the title. I’m guessing this is probably irritating to everyone else as well. So there is a good chance this change might stay permanent. Also I’m considering that having the titles show up twice might be overkill, so I’m considering to remove titles under the featured photos, and just keep them above.

2022-04-14-THU @ 8:45 AM CST – A relaunch of this website has been made this morning with a brand new website layout. Website building with new pages and posts will begin.

This page was created on Friday, April 15th, 2022 @ 1:40 AM CST.

In April 2022, I began writing and sharing my newsletter, titled MUDWALKER. This newsletter comes with my latest site updates, and also lots of other content such as links to useful & interesting websites, music lists, resources, and more. It is a free pdf published monthly between the 1st and 5th of each month (sometimes earlier depending on my schedule). You can get the latest issue here.


A large part of what makes DDAVIDD.com a great resource for information, are the lists I write and maintain. Check out the lists below that may interest you.

Podcast Spotlights (in planning coming soon):

Podcast Spotlights are a new thing I started doing in September 2020. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many podcasts myself personally. If I do listen to one, it’s usually the Armin Van Buuren’s ASOT (A State Of Trance) podcast. My Podcast Spotlights are a way for me to connect with more favorite Podcasts, while also highlighting some that you may enjoy. See the list below of the current Podcast Spotlights. UPDATE: Apparently I deleted the posts for this segment of my website. Perhaps I had a change of focus. Maybe I’ll bring the spotlights back at some point.

I do not remember when I transferred mrdthrift.com as a redirect to this site. This info only to remain in this spot until I find time to organize it properly in another place, perhaps a new domains page.

New Hobbies & Collections Photo Journal

My new publication called Hobbies & Collections will give you an up to date look at what is keeping me busy the most. Click here to read it on Issuu. This is supposed to be frequently updated, but I haven't had time to do that in awhile. I will get back to working on this journal as soon as possible. I will also move it off of the Issuu platform and make it available for download only here on my website. Stay tuned.

SPOTIFY LIFE - My Spotify listening journal is being put together so that I can publish it here on site. Look for it soon. - UPDATE - I've misplaced my list. This is on hiatus until I can find it and edit for publishing.
