My business turned two years old on Friday. Yay my business!
So, how’s it been?
It’s truly been a joy working for myself over the past two years. I really wish I’d done it sooner.
One thing that’s been a negative is the fact that I haven’t done any writing or speaking engagements since The Uncertain Web was released. It’s a bummer, but that’s the way it’s gone. I’ve been busy with paid work and, to be honest, I was a bit burned out from writing three books in three years, so a long break has been good for me.
I’ve actually got a pretty big backlog of ideas to go through. There’s been a lot of bullshit flowing through front end development over the past couple of years and I have “big thoughts” on all of it. Considering how busy I’ve been so far in 2016, I doubt that I’ll get a change to write about it, but if I do, I promise I’ll make you laugh.
I’ve also had the opportunity to work with a variety of technologies over the past couple of years, so I have opinions (real, working opinions) on just about everything out there right now. That’s fun and would be fun to share.
(Don’t hold your breath, though!)
One thing that I have kept up with is open source work. I haven’t been a demon or anything, but I have been knocking off some work pretty consistently over this year especially. That’s always fun.
One thing I should mention is that I occasionally need some development help. I’m especially interested in WordPress, Angular and pure HTML+CSS freelancers. Shoot me an email if that sounds like you.
