While I was sitting in Starbucks today I overheard a conversation where someone was talking about his recent decision to quit his job. His friend was saying congrats on the new gig. He said, “oh I decided to stay at my current place,” that decision will probably come back to bite him in the butt soon.
I know I’m not the first person to come up with the idea of writing one post every day for an entire year, but whatever. I think it will be an interesting challange. I’ve been flexing my (small) writing muscles lately, so why not step up my game and see if I can write something, anything, every day. So today’s entry is really about getting started.
Sometimes, it’s two steps forward…yadda, yadda, yadda. Last week was one of those weeks where I spent an inordinate amount of time working on something that should have been a very small issue. The problem I’m still having is that Facebook isn’t crawling my site, meaning, if you copy and paste a link into Facebook, it will just be a link with no other text around it.
I spend a lot of time time thinking about how to manage my code to be a more efficient developer. It’s a pretty nerdy thing to do but when you’re working on a lot of different projects how you manage your code becomes rather important. What I’ve come to realize over the past couple of weeks is that my current system sucks.
With the Thanksgiving weekend coming to an end I just wanted to send out a quick note of thanks.
Some quick updates to the site
A funny thing happened while I was working on my new website. Four years passed and it was always thisclose to being done, but it was never actually done. And since it was never done, I never pushed it live. But that’s OK, it was still going to be awesome when it did go live, but as time went by, the design looked a little dated and it was never quite right. So, it’s time for a redesign–of a site that has yet to go live.
