After a long hiatus I’m going to start blogging again.
“Where have you been?” you might ask. Well, I’ve had a few big changes in my life this past year.
First, I took a new job at Winxnet, a software consulting and IT management company based in Portland, Maine. It’s been a big switch. The first contract I was assigned to was an enormous SharePoint project. Being a WPF developer, the switch to web development really stretched me, and the Sharepoint part was just an extra wrench thrown in the works. I was learning a lot of things that most web and/or SharePoint developers would probably consider pretty basic. It’s always fun getting stretched like that, but it left no time or energy for blogging.
Second, in April my second child was born. Anyone with kids knows that I get a free pass for a few months for that, no questions asked.
Third, I’ve started another side project (no public details yet). This has eaten up a bunch of time the last couple of months, but it has also got my gears turning with ideas for blog posts.
Oh, and one more thing. My install of WordPress died. I can no longer log into the admin account. Rather than spend the time trying to solve the underlying issue I thought I’d check some other CMSs. I’ll be migrating my old posts over the next week, then I’ll actually create a few new techy posts.
