Idiot Tantrum

You may be noticing that there are a few things different on the site. Primarily that the site is now at a new web address, and the names and titles of everything have changed. 

The site is no longer Adventures in Husbanding, and we are no longer at I've renamed the site Idiot Tantrum, and moved the web address to

As we are right around the one year anniversary of the site, I'm doing a little re-branding. I'm not going to get into a whole long thing about why I'm changing it as I can't imagine it's all that interesting.

For the curious, the highlights of why I've made this switch are basically the following:

1. Now that the site has had a year of activity and I've had time to see the form it naturally took over a little bit of time, I realize that calling it Adventures in Husbanding is a little more narrow of a category than what the content of the site actually is. While I'm still continuing to write about being married and generally being a giant infant in adult clothes, I've found that the stuff I'm writing about isn't so much directly about marriage and being married as it is just about life in general. There is some sort of metaphor in there about discovering that marriage is just the name of the thing while the thing itself is the act of sharing life in the real world with someone, but we're more about fart jokes and jetpacks here, so let's just move on.

2. I felt like the site name and the web address Adventures In Husbanding was clunky and didn't fir with what the site's contents had. It didn't roll off the tongue all that well, and it was kind of long as a web address. Idiot Tantrum just sounds nicer to me, and I think it's easier to remember. I also felt like it fit the spirit of the site a lot better. I wan't people to know what they're getting into when they come here.

That's basically it. Long Term the goal is to make everything a more cohesive thing, with a certain look and feel that is uniform. Nothing is really changing about the site besides the name.

If you primarily come here through Facebook, which my analytics tell me is where most of my traffic funnels through, the original Facebook page will remain "Adventures in Husbanding" for a little while and then eventually change as well. Links from old posts on the old site will still be clickable on Facebook and will redirect to the new address, as will going to

Right now, as far as I can tell, as long as I don't edit the URL slug associated with the blog which is still /aih none of those old links will break. I'd like to be able to change it to something that matches the new site name eventually, but until I can figure out if there is a way to do that without having to go in and edit the URL of every single post I've made since last year on Facebook, I'll be holding off.

Look for new posts coming soon, I've got some stuff in the works.

New, NEW Layout

Just a quick thing to announce that I've redone the layout of the site again. I've been messing around with it a bunch really trying to get it easier to navigate, more prettier, and generally to look less like it was put together by a fourth grader who is shitty at website layouts.

I've taken the murderin' axe to that whole front page thing so that now you get right to the action when you come here. No more havin' to click your way to the blog for you people, nope, now the content is blasted directly at your eye holes as soon as you hit the site.

Also, I've obviously tried to spruce things up a little bit. The plain black and white with no patterns or color was starting to feel lazy. Don't worry though, I didn't go too crazy with the colors. Number one, I'm not confident enough with my ability to create a color scheme that doesn't look like my myspace page from 2004. Number two we can't have too many colors around here, this is still a manly man website about stuff like beards, bear fightin' and poo jokes. Wouldn't want to compromise my integrity.

Anywhosle, (he said immediately compromising said integrity) As you are clicking about and looking at stuff on the website, please keep a keen eye out for any weird shit or messed up stuff. If there are any layout/design errors (which I'm sure there are because I am terrible at website-ing) that I missed when I was changing over to the new look (which I'm sure I did because I am incredibly unobservant) please point them out to me, possibly in creatively rude ways if the mood strikes you.

Just used that "Email Me" button at the top to tell me how I've personally failed you.

You can also use that button to send me other stuff if you'd like, It's not like I'm sad and lonely or anything. But hey, if you send me something cool I might post it on the site and then you too can have the thrill of four people looking at your thing on the internet, two of whom came here by accident.

More stuff comin this week, for reals. Including a thing that went up today because I messed up and it released today instead of Wednesday. *shrug* 

Soon. Sooon.....

Just a quick update. I'm not dead, or slacking. (Alright so sort of slacking).

I've got several posts in the works. One of which  I have been focusing all my attention on recently that should be finished before too long.  It has been much anticipated based on the number of people who have asked when it would be coming.

Here is a hint:

I'm going to try to get this thing posted within the next week, and then have a couple more short fun ones up within a week after that.


New Layout, Murder, and Things Coming Up!

Two announcements. The first, is that I've redone some layout stuff with the site. The changes are primarily to the way the homepage is set up and presented, but I've also done some other stuff like layout changes to the archives, and the addition of new sections for events and news/announcements.

The second thing is that the Ask a Husband section of the website has been horribly, brutally murdered. I decided that It was pointless to have two separate sections so I've removed that part of the site, and I'm just going to fold those posts into the regular blog.

I've got a couple of emails in reserve for future AaH posts, but I've been having way more fun with the general story/cartoon ones lately so I've just been focused on those.  Plus, I think deep down, I'm having a hard time dishing out advice, even if it is primarily fake, terrible advice. You know it's bad when you're so convinced of how unqualified you are you can't even write an ironic advice column. 

So if you are the one person out there that actually enjoyed the Ask a Husband, one or two may pop up now and again, but sorry, I'm mostly letting that one go.

In any event, hopefully the changes to the site make it more friendly for general browsing, and keep an eye out within the next few days. I'm putting the finishing touches on a whole slew of things that will come out between now and Halloween.
