Oh my word it’s April! 04 Apr, 2012
This has to be the slowest blogging year I’ve had since I began this blog (almost a decade ago). The ironic thing is that ordinarily I would have more time than ever to keep the ole’ site up to date. Since I started contracting at a certain national broadcaster some six months ago, this has meant my working away from home during the week. A short (walking) commute coupled with no family or household chores in the evening surely mean oodles of time for blogging, hobby projects, and general geeky writing does it not?
Well no, not for this one. The fact is, since I opted to take a year out from contracting at the tail-end of 2010, preferring to focus on pure freelance work, the job has gone bonkers (in a good way). Multiple projects are at the forefront of everything I do. Most evenings are spent working, with bits at the weekend too. Whilst I’m a firm believer in the saying “Make hay whilst the sun shines”, this can go too far. I love what I do, and I love learning about our craft. It would be terrible to end up resenting the coder’s life—that would never do!
