It has now been more than 6 years since we moved back from Seattle, when I
decided to not get another “real job” and instead give “"being an independent
consultant” a try. A lot has happened in that time … and I have shared very
little of it (good and bad) in this blog.
Last year I restarted this blog, threw away all the link blog history and
planned on creating a great source of content for others to consume … that plan
failed. It failed due to me raising the bar on the level of quality for
the content I wanted to provide. I wanted it to be article/whitepaper
worthy material – a complete change from the previous content I had provided
before. To me that meant: I needed code samples, screen shots and real world
problems to describe before I could put a blog together. In looking back at
2015, the real world problems happened (that would have been great blog posts),
but I couldn’t get past the time commitment it takes to put together that higher
level of content about the problems – so hardly anything ever made it into the
blog. It is time for a change.
So going forward, I’m still not going to be ‘link blogging’ anymore. I’m
quite happy being a consumer of: http://www.alvinashcraft.com/, http://blog.cwa.me.uk/, http://www.dirkstrauss.com/ and http://regulargeek.com/ (to name a few). If
you want to know some of the links that I do find interesting in the morning,
you can follow me on twitter (@haleyjason), I do often tweet links as I find
them worthy of a good read.
I am now going to focus on blogging about the stuff I care about and am
interested in … and that will mostly not be article/whitepaper worthy stuff
