I’m back!

After several weeks without a post, I am writing to let you know I will be trying to get back to regular writing.  In short, I haven’t been writing due to the following:

  • The holidays and lots of travel
  • Me AND my fiancee are looking for jobs right now and it’s taking up a lot of our free time
  • I’m getting married in April and there is a lot of planning/calling around to be done

That being said, I will try to post at least once a month for the next few months.  Gotta give the people what they want!

Look for a post in the next few days about getting your hands dirty and building some shit.  That’s all for now, but posts are on the horizon.

Did you miss me?
