One of the things I’m Working On Right Now ™ is this whole blogging thing and social media and becoming an influencer and thought leadership and how many more buzz words can I fit into one boring sentence. #CanIGetAnAMEN
And part of figuring out some of those things is blogging regularly again, so here we go, with a totally mediocre and that’s okay posting of hello hi and here’s what’s going on in my life RIGHT NOW.
I just noticed that I’ve used ‘right now’ two times already and now three times and that’s exactly where this post is headed.
You’ve been WARNED.

I know what you’re thinking right now.
“It’s been umpteen weeks since you’ve written on this blog and THIS is what you’re going to write about?!?”
Yes, I totally used quotes because THAT is EXACTLY what you’re thinking.
Yeah, that’s right, THIS is what I’m writing about – so sit back, buck up, and get ready for a totally bumpy ride.

2. What languages do they use?
3. How how much experience do they have?
4. Do they tinker on nights / weekends or only at work?

On the one hand, yes, of course I CODE, therefore, I must be all digital all the time, right?
But, no, I love my moleskine everything – okay, just an agenda and a notebook.
I love the feel of WRITING notes with a pen and paper and then referring to those notes on pages. And flipping through a calendar to look at upcoming appointments.
