Site Re-design

It’s been pretty obvious to those of you who have hung around this long that the blog has gone without updates for a long time and has, from it’s beginning, suffered from a definite lack of direction.

I’ve learned a lot in the nearly 4 years since I began this blog.  So we’re going to have a drastic shift here.  From this point forward I’ll be using this site as sort of a sounding board for self-improvement, leadership and relationship building.  I realize this is going to be a departure from the tech news, social commentary and a thousand other things that the blog originally published.

I’ve debated just what the future of this particular blog should be, and I feel this transition is going to make the most sense given the current situation.  I hope those of you who have subscribed and enjoyed my writing in the past will choose to continue and will find the new content engaging.  I’m certain that a more clear and concise direction is going to add much more value, compared with the blog’s previous incarnation.

I’ve chosen not to remove the older posts because I believe they have their place, as far as answering questions and concerns that those finding the site through the search engines have.  The Tweetdeck post, in particular, still receives regular traffic.

So, thank you again to my readers and those I’ve connected with on this blog over the last few years.  I hope you enjoy the transformation.

New Blog: Dream Exploration

dream-exploration

http://dreamexploration.wordpress.com

With some motivation from a friend of mine, ManxT, I’ve begun a blog to document dreams.  Mostly this is for my own reference, and I don’t imagine there will be a whole lot of interest in reading long reports of dreams I’ve had. I am using it to test some theories out and do some experimenting, however, so if you have an interest in dreams, it might be worth talking a look at.

Also, It’s an open project, so if you want to contribute your own dreams, you’re free to do so. Just let me know, and I’ll add you as a contributor. If you prefer to post anonymously, I’ve enabled a way to do that, as well (hoping for the best on this one). I’m using tags to organize, and planetary influences as categories, as well as sigils to possibly enable returns. I haven’t seen anyone else with this type of setup, and I’m looking forward to exploring these techniques further.

EDIT: Fixed the broken link. Sorry about that.

I’m Not Your Buddy, Guy! Site Under Construction

My new website is under construction.

There’s still much to be done, and not all the sections have content yet, but if you’re interested in seeing how it’s coming along, you can check it out.

The most noteworthy features currently are the search feature (which pulls information from about 20 of my sites, blogs, profiles, etc.), and the secrets section, which can be accessed by submitting a secret of your own.  Most of my work has gone into those, and I’m planning on using that section, in particular, to post the sort of (inner)dialog that I do not use public blogs for.

I hope you’ll come take a look, but keep in mind, it is a work in progress, and I haven’t had a lot of time to update it yet.
