I'm blogging! 
Check out my Plotting Down Under blog 
PlottingDownUnder is a blog on "interesting graphs for teaching economics and finance" with downloadable Excel spreadsheets (including a Fred add-in download option when possible) to customize graphs according to your own tastes primarily for teaching and light research. And a request to let me know if you do use this, for tracking purposes. Constructive feedback, guest posts, requests, and publicity are welcome. We'll see how it goes and if I last. There will be some learning.
