Writing and Blogging

1 Nov 2008

So, the recent interest in National Blog Posting Month has made me reflect on my own writing over the past since since I took part last year. I wrote 30 posts in a month, then just 10 posts in the next 11 months. While I don’t regret letting my professional writing get in the way of my personal writing, I feel somewhat obligated to start giving back again. Once the book’s out of the way, I should be able to get back to writing here more regularly, but in the meantime, I thought I’d share a bit of what’s been occupying so much of my time.

Wicked [stuff].

It’s been a while since I’ve posted regularly, and those of you who really keep your ear to the community already know why. Last week, news broke that I’m writing a book. I’ve actually been writing it for several months now, since before the sprint last December, toying with the idea of contacting a publisher. After getting positive feedback from several people at the sprint, I bit the bullet and contacted Apress in January, got a contract and have been working pretty much non-stop ever since.
