It’s raining in Cincinnati. Newport, KY, actually.
So it’s been about six months since I posted. Where have I been? Why no posts? Why am I back now? Who cares?
Where have I been?
The same places I usually am. New York, Asheville, Cincinnati, Chicago. Recently I’ve also been to Vermont a lot. The snowboarding there is great.
I still live in New York. I’m visiting the Cincinnati area this week.
Why no posts?
Lack of interest and other priorities. Writing is work.
Why am I back now?
I’ve been thinking about it for a while and have some dead time at the moment, since I’m locked out of my company VPN due to a technical issue of some sort.
That and I’m sitting at the Innersync offices here in Newport and I’m listening to my friend Steve do a really great job consulting his client on search engine optimization. I’m really impressed at his skill. I knew he was good, but I’ve never seen him in action. Damn.
While eavesdropping on this conversation I learned Innersync shows third when you punch Cincinnati Web Design into Google. Once I heard that I entered my name for kicks and found out I’m at the top of the search results.
Who knew? I’m stoked. Now I feel obligated to keep my blog updated. The top-of-Google ranking is mine to lose.
On a more serious note I like writing about the things that interest me, and there’s a lot happening in a lot of areas. There are innovative products like the Apple TV, iPhone, and a bunch of Web services. I’m getting into digital photography. Snowboarding clicked for me this winter and I’m getting obsessed. I miss Web development. Et cetera.
My goal for this blog has never really been to get hits; it’s to record my thoughts and occasionally get involved in an interesting debate. Though I generally feel in the loop, I feel like an outsider when my blog goes dark.
So, the lights are on.
