(LATEST UPDATE: April 9, 2014)

• RIP, Nelson Mandela... - My thoughts and prayers go out in loving memory of the Ultimate Warrior. He was an awesome wrestler.

• 2,000,000 Views and Happy (Belated) 4th Anniversary! - "John's Blog Space" has surpassed 2 million hits all-time (Blogger/Blogspot statistics) yesterday! Thanks to all of you for contributing to these numbers! Since Blogger/Blogspot unveiled its own stat engine in June 2008, very few blogs have reached the 2M view count. So I am very pleased to receive so much attention from such a worldwide audience. Can't say enough- thank you so much for contributing to this milestone for me! Also, my blog celebrated its 4th anniversary back on Wednesday, January 23, 2013.

• I May Be Idle... - ...but I am not "dead." I do contribute to my other blogs as well as just living life. So do remember to keep checking in to see my latest posts here on "John's Blog Space" and my other blogs.

• Over time, the "Car Style" label will not be discontinued, but posts will not take on the "Car Style" name. It was originally intended to be about how I think certain vehicles look. Because of spam comment concerns, however, I have not discussed this topic as much as I used to. Some old "Car Style" posts will be deleted with newer versions just to keep the topic alive on John's Blog Space.

• Some of this blog's old blog posts will be edited and/or deleted. Many of them are old Gran Turismo posts that will be moved over to "John's Gran Turismo Space." So I invite you to visit JGTS to get your fill of Gran Turismo commentary from me.

• My blog will take on a new theme in the near future. The current theme is called "Sea of Stars." The new theme will not really be an overall change to the look of this blog. However, I am working on something to give this blog some new life.

• Sidebar Updates - My Cafepress widget and Twitter widget have both been updated. Be sure to look at each of the items I've provided to you. Don't forget also to take advantage of any offers I have for all of you. Please help yourself now that you're here.

• New Search Bar - I am experimenting with a new search bar. This search bar will allow you to search for items not only in this blog, but in my others as well. Feel free to use this new search bar to your advantage. I may, however, go back to the old one and leave this newer one behind if I am unable to make the absolute most of it.

• Have You Visited My StyleSpace Blog Yet? - Visit stylespacebyjbm.blogspot.com to check out my fairly new blog devoted to fashion. StyleSpace is all about anything and everything regarding fashion. Diverse topics, diverse opinions... it is not your average "fashion" blog.

• Joined ShopSense - If you see any ShopStyle widgets, that is because I joined ShopSense, their affiliate program. This will help my fashion lovers to find more items based on relevant material in my blog posts. That leads to the next point...

• "An Important Amazon Note" is now "Affiliate Notes" - "An Important Amazon Note" now falls under a new name. It still has information regarding other affiliate programs I've signed up for. Even though it pertains to Amazon, it also includes other programs I've taken part in; and so I have to change up the info.

• Layout Changes - Incremental changes to the current layout will be made over a certain amount of time. The whole blog will have a much different appearance as the changes are being made. Forgive me if the blog appears to be messy- all I am doing is making changes in a slow and steady manner. The new Social Bar is now below the header (which I was trying to go for all along).

• "Like" Me on Facebook! - Have you "liked" my Facebook fan page? If not, and if you have Facebook, I have an easier-to-remember link. Just search "TheJohnMarine" on Facebook or just click this: http://www.facebook.com/TheJohnMarine to visit my Fan Page. Also, don't forget to add my Google+ page to your Circles. Links to all can be found at the top of my blog in the Social Bar.

• Important Note Regarding Comments Posted Here - Any suspicious comments posted on my blog will be deleted promptly. It makes no sense that the majority of comments posted here are mostly from non-genuine people (spammers, bots, etc.). It makes no sense that I get so many hits from so many people, but only so few (mostly spammers and loyal readers) actually respond to my work. So please- share your thoughts on anything I post. But with recent rough times for my blog and blogging work, I at least need some assurance that people actually care about my work. Anything that even just sounds like spam will be shot down immediately.

• Am I In Your Blogroll? - Do you have a blog of your own? Please feel free to add my blog to your Blogroll if you love "John's Blog Space!" It would be a great pleasure for you to link back to my blog if you enjoy my work. At least you can tell people how great JBS is if you love my work. After all, I'd love to meet new people who love my blog and its posts. So why not add it to your blogroll?
