Life, the Universe and Everything

This blog has been highly neglected lately. That’s unfortunate because I really do enjoy writing in it and have things to say.

If you’ve been wondering waiting for me to update and wondering why, the primary reason is my story blog (link to to be found along the side). Secondarily, you can also blame my related duties as an editor of Web Fiction Guide, a website that lists and reviews free online novels and serials.

Between the two of them, they take up the time that I would ordinarily use to write blog entries.

Which sucks.

On the bright side, I’m producing 2000+ words of fiction on a regular basis on the story blog so I am happy about that.

Outside of that, I’m looking for interesting programming projects (as in not work related, ones that I’d find fun for their own sake) to improve that area of knowledge.

Also, Kristen (my wife) is looking for a new job. If you want to hear more about that, I’d talk to her (or to me by email), but I’m not going to write too much about that here. If you want to help, let us know if you know of a place that’s looking for a social worker.

Umm… What else to say? Here’s one: Even though Obama wasn’t my first choice during the primaries, I was quite happy to vote for the guy and am happily surprised to watch how he’s handling the transition so far. Hopefully, that’ll carry over to the actual presidency.

Changing Themes

Some of you may not have noticed, but this blog has been changing themes lately. In one case I’m sure I had five different ones in the course of a day.

For the last few weeks I’ve mostly stuck with one, but I didn’t like it. It had features that I liked, but looked like a good theme that had been messed up by too much editing.

So, I’ve currently got a theme that I like the looks of even though I suspect that it’s bit heavy on graphics and javascript.

Nonetheless, I’m likely to stick with it for a while.
