OK, so first off -- I'm sorry. I do owe all of you out there in internet land an apology for leaving so randomly and abruptly.
Secondly, I'm back for a while. I think. The folks at work seem to be OK with the whole blogging thing, and I'm not here to talk about work or say anything about them, so I should be good on that front. Nothing personal, but I don't really want to talk about the whole work thing, other than they were firmly against blogging (hence the leave) and changed their position a bit (woo!). Work is work and I'm going to leave it at work. So, unless they change their mind or something, I should be here.
Thirdly, I hope you've been enjoying the new folks here. They have really stepped up to the plate and I'm thrilled to have Dave and LD here. Also glad to have Ryan still on board and taking a bigger role. I don't even know what would have happened without them, and frankly don't want to think about it. I think it's all going to be a lot better thanks to a four-headed monster. Three daddies and a mommy. You all will be some screwed up kids. But it's a lot of fresh, new stuff from some people you may or may not have read before. Or maybe you're reading the site now because your favorite blogger is now on board. In that case, welcome!
The four of us will all be around randomly, with really the only certainty right now being Ryan in on Thursdays for the usual. The site will be updated twice a day during the work week at the very least, which is great.
Fourthly, I think I needed the week off. Recharge the batteries and things like that. I've spent the better part of the last few days just reading everything that's been posted everywhere. Just taking it all in. And it's awesome. There's a lot of smart writers and great blogs out there. It's really unbelievable. I didn't get to do as much of that when I was writing a few times a day.
Any questions about anything or if I missed something that you want to hear about, you know where to email me. Or leave your thoughts in the comments. Either is fine.
But thanks for reading and thanks for putting up with me. See you tomorrow!
