Subscriber Giveaway Winner

In April, I did a series of posts expressing my appreciation for visitors, readers, and subscribers to Amdall Gallery, and opened up a giveaway as small gesture of thanks. The prize was small (essentially $20 or custom artwork), but there were far more entries than I expected! I was thinking maybe a dozen or so people would stumble across it and roll

Welcome to part two of three in a series of posts thanking readers, and taking a step back to review Amdall Gallery’s status as we approach a subscriber milestone.

I found a site called seatguru.com that shares seat pitch (measurement from

Cryptocurrency Experiment, Thanksgiving Update

Although I just wrote an update on my cryptocurrency experiment about a week ago, I felt the need to write another. Over Thanksgiving weekend, prices started jumping for some reason. I really have no idea why a few have surged so rapidly, but I wanted to show which coins are now the high-risers. Original article, August 2017: https://jonamdall.com/2017/08/10/cryptocurrency-exploration/ Three week

Cryptocurrency Experiment, 3 Month Status Update

In early August, I wrote about my experiences learning about cryptocurrency, and my first dive in to purchase a few coins. Stemming from my disappointment on missing the boat with Bitcoin’s tremendous growth over the last few years, I wanted to buy some other coins and see what happens with them.
