I don’t know how to begin to explain the incredible, sad, scary, surreal and utterly crazy details of my life the past year. If nothing important or special ultimately comes from it, then it’s not that great of a story anyway; wait for the book 😉
I’m not a real fan of excuses, so I won’t offer you any. In short; I hit an especially bad patch in my personal life and during the long, painful and pathetic healing process I’ve been a bit of a recluse. B00-hoo, right?!
I suspect that a sudden and prolonged absence from “public life” is not necessarily a good choice for a person whose main career focus the past few years has been web technology, social media and community management.
Since I can’t go back time, I’ll just have to deal. Regret and dumb mistakes are simply not going to stop me this late in the game.
I’m Not Back; I Never Left
Despite my year-long personal funk and temporary loss of mojo, I have not lost the underlying passion for web technology, sharing knowledge and connecting with people that originally started me on this journey.
I owe a huge debt of gratitude to those who continue to believe that I have enough talent and skills to keep me employed in the career field I chose. I owe much more to those who have taken me under their wing, educated me and allowed me such close access to their brilliance. The only way I can repay those people is to reach my full potential.
I have not been a total loser, check out my updated LinkedIn profile and stay tuned here to see what I do next. My plan is to use this blog as a home base for everything I do. I already have tons of cool and useful things to show you from my social media internship at Tripwire, Inc. and much more.
