A new chapter begins. After 13 years at the same company my position is being eliminated. Time to find a new job. Piles of stress but no sadness. I’ve been unhappy at my current job for some time.
What I hope to accomplish now is to get a job that matches why I got into web work in the first place. I want to make cool and useful web sites. Not surprisingly, intranet sites at an insurance company are rarely cool or useful.
I’m renewing my interest in WordPress. It’s a powerful, simple and modular approach to building web sites. I’ve been using it for several years for my personal websites, but never had the time or energy to take it to the next level.
Next weekend I’m going to Wordcamp Las Vegas. I hope to fill in some of the gaps in my knowledge and meet fellow enthusiasts.
