A blog that needs work

Times are-a changin'

I have not been the best at updating my blog.

... or updating my twitter, for that matter. It has been a rough year. I don't want to blog about blogging, or make thingstoo personal, but I feel like some explanation is in order. I'll keep it brief:

  • As I mentioned,I started writing a book. That book is now finished, and I should write about what that experience was like. That covers from July to March.

  • Things at Willet did not turn out as I had expected. The company still exists; I just decided that it was time to move on. On the plus side, I have a new job, and I learned a lot about running a business, managing a team, and looking for work (some data included). I'll try to write more on that as well, but that process took from March to May, eating up a lot of time.

  • I switched from Octopress (Ruby) to Pelican (Python). Why? Familiarity, mostly, and as a technical person I have a tendency to play around with different libraries. Because I was focussing on the tools (and not the content), I got a little... distracted. That in combination with the above made it difficult for me to update. I am not going to lie, I will probably try something different again.

  • I went to Anime North again, without much help from HotelTracker (though, after making some significant changes to it as well). I might write about that... we'll see.

  • I started to look for a house. Not hugely impactful, but something that happened. I don't plan on writing about mortgages or real estate agents so don't expect to hear about that.

Suffice to say, its been very busy, but I'm hoping to change that.

Let's see if I can get back into the swing of things!
