Like I said, the beginning of this year was marked by changes. Many changes, some smaller, some bigger, but undoubtedly all changes have happened due to a choice I made.

Bad choice

One of the bad things with my system is that when some plan is in place I usually stick to it. However, if premises change, I usually reconsider my choice, except if I’m way too tired to do that. In January I planned some work to be done in my appartment, which involved a lot of money spent, and lot of dust and…, well, dirt. When I came back from mom late February I had spent a lot of money, and my resources were quite low. More than that, I changed my workplace, and the pay day had shifted an extra half a month. However, I still started the work in my home, disregarding my lack of funds.

Morale: Don’t do that.

Good choice

A year ago, while I was working on maPolitique.be, I had an idea that it would be nice to hold some seminars about Web 2.0 and Rails. Later in the autumn I contacted missis Ema Cerchez and mr. Marinel Serban, my ex-teachers from highschool, about holding a couple such seminars for the students in their classes. We started this spring, and it proves to be a good thing. I really like that some of the stundents are quite enthusiastic about Ruby on Rails, especially those who had some trouble with PHP. I’ll sure keep this up, and maybe talk to a broader audience some time soon.

Morale: Do that.

Of course, I had many more choices to take, but I can’t talk of the most frustrating, and I won’t talk of the most boring. Nevertheless, there’s a subtle embedded message in this post.

Breaking Radio Silence

It sure has been a long while since I've last had time to write. There has been a lot happening, I've had tons of ideas of stuff to write about, but there's just been... well, no time for me. Not that my blog is got a lot of readers now, but I feel worm and fuzzy inside knowing I've posted something some might digg. Isn't that what drives all bloggers?

Since the whole beginning of the year has been about change, this is what I want to talk about next. The next post will be about change. Also in the area, I'm going to change some things in my blog: I'm moving all the techy posts to their own lair, and all the gaming/entertainment posts to another lair. This place will stay and act as a personal blog of it's own. I'ven't yet decided whether to move the blog to another hosting service, or whether to create separate accounts on Blogger...

I'd say "I'll keep you guys posted", but since my blog doesn't have much of an audience it's quite stupid. So here's another change... I'd have to build audiences. Most hits on my blog came for the Jeff Dunham post via Google Search, and it hasn't fell any lower since October. Cool, but I'm not happy about it! I don't know if I'll find much audience for the personal blog, but there will be plenty people to read the gaming or the techy blog. Or at least I hope so.
