Has It Really Been Over Three Years??

There was a time when I’d sit down nearly every day after dinner and write up something, anything, that came to mind. It’s funny how such a simple thing can slip away, and before you know it, years have past and you wonder why you stopped.

I think I stopped, initially because things had gotten ‘real’ at work, I was no longer a “Coder of Fortune” I’d joined the ranks of other ‘employed’ folks, I had a real job.

It didn’t seem to me, at the time, that continuing to run a blog that, initially at least, was intended to be about coding, and the sometimes strange world of doing that under contract.

As I look back though, I realize that maybe what I was more worried about than anything was that I now had a job and what I was reading about employers and how they were reacting to employees who maintain a blog, was a bit unsettling.

I’m still not sure how I feel about that, but, then again, when I look back over the things I’ve written, why would any employer take issue with it?

So, here I sit, today, with not much to say really, except that I’ve missed you all. I never expected when I started this, that it would ever really be much other than a personal journal of sorts. That many of you enjoyed my stories, continued to stop in, read and comment on them, was a joy, in and of it self.

I can’t promise I’ll be back in any regular sort of way, but I can tell you I’ve been thinking a lot about it.
