Back when I started blogging in 2005 I struggled with the idea of revealing any personal details on my blog. I’m a pretty private person so maintaining an online personality was never something I ever really wanted to do. Over the years, I relaxed that stance and casually began to talk more and more about my personal life and I’ve told plenty of wacky stories about my family.

Some things have come up recently that have reinforced my original thought process of keeping my blog posts to a technical subject matter.

I recently made some comments about a previous job of mine and those comments have apparently been interpreted in a negative way. If anyone that read that post is still around, let me be the first to say that my post was in no way was meant to speak bad about the company, team, or personnel that were there during my tenure. My experiences at that time had more to do with where I was in my career and what expectations I had for the job.

With that said, I apologize if I rubbed anyone the wrong way or if I somehow came off as abrasive.

From this point forward, my blog is going to trend back to the way it used to be. That is to say that personal posts will become less frequent and my thoughts on design, usability, development, and professional development will begin to dominate the blog.
