This One Is For You Dan

0 comments suggest edit

Last night we went out with friends to celebrate Akumi’s birthday. Somehow the topic of my blog came up in conversation. Perhaps I have a tendency to interject the topic of “blogging” every chance I get. I can be annoying that way.

In any case, my friend Dan points out that he wishes I would write a little more personal content. His poor eyes get tired from scrolling down through the reams of code which is all meaningless gibberish to him.

Well Dan, this post is for you.

Unfortunately I have nothing to say in this particular post. I slept in late today and my day is just beginning. I have a bit of work to do for a client so I need to get head down into coding.

In the meanwhile, for all my friends who don’t care for my technical gibberish, you can subscribe to my Day to Day (rss) category. This contains all my non-technical posts 100% free of code.

    That's always been a struggle for me as well...how much personal content to post on what I consider to be a "tech" blog. At this point I just write about whatever the hell I feel like writing about (it's all about categories baby). I'm not as smart as Atwood and can't come up w/ a cool technical post every day :-).

    i don't know what dan is talking about!
    i find the tech posts MOST interesting.
    especially the ones about build processes.

    Why does it have to be one or the other? Can't a build process be intensely personal?

    When I talk about obtaining call stack frames in deadlock situations, I am totally baring my soul.

    thanks for caring....I always thought you didn't care, just as long as I keep clicking on those ads!

    Oh please don't joke about clicking on the ads just to do it. I could get my disbarred from AdSense.

    No big surprise here - I'm with Dan on this one. But maybe you could write a post that explains what exactly my husband does for a living (in a way that I can understand, and then repeat for inquiring minds at cocktail parties.) Cheers!

    Steff, when are you going to restart your blog?
