What Happens When I Ask the World a Question?

Hey folks, I hope things are going well for you – whatever you’ve been up to.

I’ve seriously been struggling with this blogging business over the last couple of months. The number of posts I’ve started and not finished has been dramatically higher than it used to be.

The issue I think is not knowing what I want to do with this space. I mean, if I am going to keep an active blog I want it to serve some purpose.

I’m a bit unsure right now what that purpose should be.

Here are some questions I’ve been asking myself related to this. Continue reading What Happens When I Ask the World a Question?

Three Months as a QA at Liberty

A couple of months ago I wrote a blog post called Two Weeks as a QA at Liberty. I’ve been working full-time for roughly three months now and I thought it might be about time to write a new blog post about “how things are going.”

No… I’m not going to get all meta about what I’m actually doing, rather this post is more about how the transition has gone, from “freelance Rails developer and WordPress implementer” trying to get jobs, to full-time “Quality Analyst.” Continue reading Three Months as a QA at Liberty

Revitalizing the Spirit, Mind and Soul by Driving Away

The Internet Needs More Humanity and Humility

Writing With DeskPM 1.2 | Personal Projects | More Faith

I was thinking this evening about how strange my writing habits are these days. Some days I write several thousand words just for the fun of it. Other day’s I don’t write anything at all.

As I was thinking about it some I wondered what makes the difference in whether I write or not. I couldn’t come to a definitive conclusion on the matter, but I think the truth probably lies somewhere between whether I feel like I have something to write about and whether I’m just super lazy.

But here we go… some random things that I’ve been thinking about lately. Continue reading Writing With DeskPM 1.2 | Personal Projects | More Faith
