So, I’m loving this blackberry client for WordPress! So far its really letting me use my other “down-time” to blog. I don’t tweet often, mostly because I don’t feel the need to update everyone on my life as it happens in real-time. So now, I can write a blog post throughout the day – say during *marathon meetings*.
I suppose I just need to get passed the personal “need” to post long blog entries. I know one doesn’t *have* to post long entries, but I feel that if there is a little substance to my entries, people are more likely to come and read. After all, I’m not a professional blogger, and I’m not writing to make money. My principle goal when I started this blog many moons ago, was to use it as a way of documenting the changes I made at work to our systems. A place to document little *gotchas*, so that others (or myself) could use them to implement systems of their own. I have an extremely low budget at work, and because of this, I am forced to look to the open source world to do my job effectively. The open source world has much to offer, and if you’re willing to give it some work, and patience, it can have a huge payoff in the end. More often than not though I find that I need to do the same process over and over, and because I am the only one doing it, I am often recalling the steps from memory.
Another purpose for this blog is to let you in on the moments of sunshine that my often off-the-wall friends shine into my life. We’ve all had some great times together, and it looks like they show no sign of slowing down. Over time I will post more personal experiences. Right now for example I’m waiting on another voicemail from angry-steph. We’ll see how that goes!
