In the words of the immortal Roseanne Roseannadana “It’s always something….”
Just when i was finally back from vacations and other distractions and ready to handle my very intense deadlines… I was struck down by… well you really don’t want to know except that it was food-borne, it landed me in a lovely hospital outside Redmond (where i came for what seemed at the time to be an important 3 day meeting of which I attended 10 minutes) and someone owes me two entire days that I don’t remember at all.
As these things do, the experience gave me time to reflect on what is important in life. You know, kids, Silverlight, family, blogging, videos, wifi, private rooms in hospitals, good health care, the Daily Show….
And it gave me time to plan and prioritize to meet the needs of folks who have responded to the tutorials, blog entries, videos and more. I’ve written more than enough already about “here’s what’s coming…” so I won’t again. Instead I’ll spend the next couple months kicking those plans into gear.
By the end of October I’ll try to get a sense of how things are going, and adjust the balance and in January it will be time to assess. That said, look for the first step: regular blogging, to start right now: I was listening to Scott Hanselman sing the praises of those who have something useful in their blogs daily; that is a high standard, but worth shooting for.
