Good evening. I’ve spent so much alone time in this office, sometimes I feel like I’m talking to myself. But, I digress…

2014 – kind of an odd year. I stopped updating my previous blog that I’d been updating since 2007. I wanted to start fresh, refocus, slim down. It was a big move for me.

I had so many things planned for this blog, so many posts that I wanted to write. And, I was pretty gung-ho at the jump. But, when you make lists, sometimes all you’re doing is making lists.

Apologies for being all over the place with my content, even though my main mission was to streamline. It’s still early on this side, and I’m working out the kinks.

Readership was pretty good. I have less subscribers than before. But, they came in at a faster rate. And, I think the engagement/interest level is different. So, thank you for subscribing and reading.
