A fresh start. That’s what I needed. The old ways weren’t working. Writing what I know brought in maybe one real person a month checking out my website. I grew bored. Writing code examples got me nowhere except deeper into time debt.
Time debt. No, it’s not related to time travel. Time debt is what you get when you know you have to make something happen on a project schedule and instead you do something else. You’ve borrowed time from that project deadline to spend a night watching TV with the significant other, rambling off onto some tangential-laced web-search-session to nowhere, or surfing every department of the Target website just “to see what’s available.”
Well, I’ve given up on the old ways. My time debt is getting too large. It’s time to crunch and in doing so it’s time for a refresh on the personal blog. Gone are the code samples, tyrades on programming, music, and useless stories on technology others have created. I’m a software engineer who’s an entrepreneur. A left-handed creative who suffers from shiny-object-syndrome. I’ve run businesses in the past. It’s about time I run my business.
This kickoff post is the beginning of a new chapter for this blog. From now on I plan on blogging about business; my business, generalities about business, but more importantly the trials and tribulations of starting and running an IT business. Yeah, it’s been done before. I don’t care. I’m writing this as a weblog of my journey. If you glean anything from my posts then I’ve done my job.
Web analytics be damned! It’s about time.
