From Me

  • I’m starting to tinker with a few changes to my blog. Last weekend, I launched a new tool to help keep me accountable for my step count.

  • I am considering moving my blog from Now to my own server. Thoughts?

  • I’ve conducted one interview for my upcoming series, and have many more scheduled.

  • Working.


See you next week,
