Ramblings from an Independent Consultant

Personal Blog Update - Q1 2016

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
