A friend of ours, Roger, has been mentioning how boring this blog has become. “Have you gone pro?”, he asks. To which, I laugh…a lot. As a side note, even tho’ he’s not in the tech sector he’s a great example of how personal blog content on a corporate site can lead to driving awareness of a company with people who normally could care less about certain topics related to it. Our conversations about a personal topics often would lead to a work related topic he read about on my blog. Cool.
Anyway, getting back to the cause of the boringness. Sadly, he’s not the the only one to notice that this blog seems to have lost that personal content ingredient. This isn’t by design or some master plan to abandon my goofiness and strive for some higher level of rigid professionalism. Much of it has to do with my turning 40 in March and as a result I got serious about getting fit — this started around late last year.
I now spend more time running and cycling. Now that summer is here, I spend an insane amount of time gardening (we have a 2 acre yard). This calendar year, I’ve also taken on a few task forces at Sun AND one of my projects, Forums, reached a point where it needed and deserved far more attention (lots of good traction there that I’ll try to blog more about).
So, that’s the word. I’ll try to bring back some entertaining posts, but in the meantime, visit me on Twitter for some goofy microblogging, if you’d like.
