Well, it was time for a change. This blog has transitioned to it’s new permanent location here at Random Drake. There are events in our lives which cannot be foretold and thus, we move on and on in an effort to keep up with the inevitable force that drives us known as: change.
Moving the blog, setting up the new design and going through old content, allowed me to realize that it had been an entire year since I had the opportunity to publish something. I was saddened to know that a blog, I worked so hard to get up and going, was not getting the attention it deserved. Life is unfolding faster and faster in front of me and so I felt it necessary to bring this back to life. I enjoy the writings and pleasure that I received in sharing programming, news and events with the rest of the world. That being the case: you can expect a revival of content and stories from this particular blogger. I have personalized the blog in an effort to make it a part of my life and who I am instead of simply a place where I posted things occasionally.
My personal and professional lives have had a great deal of happenings in the last year. Moving to another part of the world has introduced me to a new job where I toil along an immense project that keeps me constantly busy. The database seems to practically be busting at the seams, compared to other projects, as it grows near 400GB in size. The project rewards me by allowing me to write some good PHP and increase my SQL skills tremendously.
The ongoing side project, that has been in development for a few years, has seen a revival since receiving a makeover. Surpassing half a million hits in a month was a pretty neat thing to see and allowed me to know it was something that should become more of a priority. Continuing to gain popularity, the site has a few more big steps going for it before my trip to California where I hope to start spreading the good word about it.
Continuing to work on getting this blog more accessible, interesting and connected is something I have a goal for. Hopefully I will be able to find some additional WordPress plugins to aid me in the task.
We shall see what happens as time goes on.
