Ever notice how folks who blog sporadically (uh, like me!) always apologize for not blogging for a while, and then re-affirm their dedication to blogging regularly? And often, accompanying their apology, is also a reason. I was going to "Blame it on the Rain" but the very thought of quoting Milli Vanilli makes me shudder.
So, instead, Patty gets to explain it for me. Well, now that I think about it, it really doesn’t explain anything. But I was listening to that song last night, and the lyrics stuck in my head.
The worst part about not blogging for weeks on end is that I can’t just ramble on as if you know what I’ve been up to for the last last few weeks, but I’ll try to catch ya up:
Over the last several weeks, I’ve been moving my focus from doing "Program Management" tasks to more "Software Developer" tasks. You see, during the last year, I’ve discovered that I’m a Developer. Deep down, that’s what I do best. Focusing in that direction is already paying off, and I’m finding that I’m accomplishing far more than I had before.
So, rather than focus on simply facilitating, I’ve been actually compiling, debugging, coding… aaaahhh. It’s so nice.
And the best part: all the work that I’m doing is dedicated to getting Apache and PHP working much better on the Windows platform. I may just possibly have the absolute best job at Microsoft.
