It’s been exactly 890 days, or 1.2 million seconds since my last post on RickyMills.com. After my last post on my top 10 mac web development apps, I moved in with some friends on my university course for a year, which was great fun. I then went on to launch my own web hosting business only to sell it this year to focus on other projects. I’m not going to mess about explaining what I’ve been up to. All I am going to say is, welcome to 2012 – I’m back.
I’ve been thinking about starting up the site again over the last moth or so, I even went as far as to upgrade WordPress and change the theme around a month ago, but never actually posted anything after that.
Like most people, on the 1st of Jan of every year, I subconsciously think “how can I make this year better than the last”. So here’s what I’m going to do: I’m going to start posting here again as of today. My personal goal is a minimum of 1 post per week. I think this is a fairly easy goal to achieve and hopefully go beyond. I’m looking at this as a fresh start. A new beginning. God knows I need it. My my own admission I’ve been pretty poorly motivated over the last few months to the point where at times I could barely be bothered to check my emails.
But, all that ends right now. I’m not going to try and list out a bunch of new years resolutions, as doing that just creates stupid amounts of pressure, and you end up pissed off with yourself when/if you dont meat your own expectations. All I am going to do is make myself more relaxed and productive. How I’m going to be doing that remains to be seen. I spent the christmas break mulling a few ideas over in my head and will likely try and modify my workspace and workflow in an attempt to get some sort of order and discipline into my work routine.
So, I’ll be back very soon with some interesting content – I’ve had 890 days to think of things I want to write so there’s no shortage of articles to put together
