You probably want to skip this post. It is really just here as filler to break the ice that has accumulated from not blogging in more than two years. I am not quite sure where the time is going to come from to be able to do the writing that I really want to do. However, it continues to surprise me how often I am having a conversation and I get to reach into the old bizcoder blog and say "I wrote a post about that years ago". There are so many topics that I spend time thinking about these days and I write scribbly notes into a OneNote page, or a Word document. Those words just then die in that medium. They are not in a format that is great to share and the fact that I know I probably will not share them causes me to not spend the time to polish them sufficiently to share. It is a vicious cycle.
I just read Adam Ralph's post Blog == Weblog and I was inspired. I started blogging 10 years ago because I wanted an outlet for my thoughts. I didn't take it particularly seriously as you would see if you dig back to the early days. [ed note: which would be easier if my blog host actually provided an index to those old posts.] However, I enjoyed reading about the miscellaneous thoughts that went through the heads of people who I respected, and I enjoyed sharing my own.
