Why So Quiet?

Sorry things have been a little subdued around here lately. This blog—like most blogs—goes through the occasional periods of diminished activity. This is one of them. Here’s why:

First and foremost, work is keeping me busy. Since I’m self-employed, that’s a good thing. I can’t, unfortunately, tell you much about the project I’m working on right now, but it’s a biggie. I’m doing javascript, PHP, and ExpressionEngine work for a new website for a large, multi-national corporation. The site is due to launch on Friday “or people get fired” (as the guy I’m working for so succinctly put it). No pressure, right?

That’s on top of my regular workload. For example, last week I began working with a local small business to develop their first ever website. We haven’t signed a contract yet, but that should come this week or next.

Then there’s soccer. Last week, for instance, Nebraska Rush hosted other Rush clubs from around the country—Colorado, Michigan, Virginia, Arkansas, California, Hawaii—as part of a four-day clinic. They began each morning with games, so I got to help out there.

And of course there are the family responsibilities. Two year olds are awesome, but they do take time, don’t they? Robbie is on Day 3 of going diaper-less in the daytime. I’m not sure we’re welcome back in Barnes & Noble any more, but other than that, he is doing great!

Not that I’m trying to make excuses. I just don’t want you to think I’m sick, or burning out, or bored, or anything like that. It’s just the classic problem of too many responsibilities to fit into too few hours. I’ll have things back up to full speed just as soon as I can.

I’m also a freelance web developer.  Maybe we could partner on a project in the future?
