The last several months have been busy. Between a busy home schedule, a busier work schedule, and planning the first SQL Saturday we’ve seen in the RTP area since 2010, the months from June through September were packed. Also, to be honest, I was burned out for a while. We’ve run this group blog for eight years, and for the first seven, I tried to put together a post a day. Eventually, I had less and less time to put together good posts and felt like most of my days were copping out, putting up a link or two out of duty rather than because I had something interesting.
I’m finally getting to a point where I have a little bit of free time and, more importantly, things to discuss. I’ve decided to get back to my roots and focus my portion of this blog on points of professional interest: database administration, software development, security, and economics. I probably will not post every day like I used to, but instead I plan to use a lot of my blogging as the first draft in presentations and a way for me to write down a few solutions to interesting problems I’ve run into during my day job.
In the meantime, if you want your share of irreverent topics, our resident Penguatroll is still kicking. Time for me to get back to it, too.
