Side projects

I've been pretty busy over the past week working on a few things other than writing articles here.

I've been enjoying sharing articles and information here and intend to continue with it.

When I started writing this blog a few weeks ago, I don't think I realised how time consuming it was going to be. I expected to be posting three or four links a day and maybe more some days. Last week I only managed two. It was a little disappointing.

If I'm going to write anything on a given day, it will probably take me two or three hours of work. This will be time spent finding topics to write on (which will often just be trawling web sites which I might be doing anyway), doing some research, writing, editing, proof-reading, etc. I've been working on a few other things this week and just haven't had the time. 

One thing I have been doing is getting a web site created for a side-project I'm working on. I've never really done much web development on a server before (other projects have been using WordPress or Squarespace or other things) so it has been a bit slow and laborious. I have been learning lots about HTML, CSS, DNS, Amazon AWS, PHP and lots of other TLAs and ETLAs.

Hopefully I'll be back on board with a few more links and articles next week.
