Hello Internet. Remember me? It’s been a long time, I know. Too long. No, no, it’s nothing you’ve done. It’s really not you….
It’s me. My life. I just don’t have time for you anymore.
There, I said it. You’re not a priority in my life. I have other things to do. I’m trying to replace you, in fact. I’ve been spending a lot of time with another website – www.qcgroup.com. Have you heard of it? Most of my day is spent working over there. It’s what I do now. Writing for the internet is just a drop in the bucket. I never knew how much fun it could be to program, to design….
Photoshop is the proverbial bomb; Dreamweaver is my new best friend. I’m learning code languages and “lingo” and spouting stuff I never thought I’d hear myself say. Google has become more than “Google”. Google is Analytics, Adwords, and Webmaster Tools (I like that…”webmaster”. It sounds so big-league.). Excel, Outlook, Word….I get it now. I understand your strangle hold on corporate productivity. Don’t worry, I’m challenging you in my own way. You don’t have me yet.
Summer 2013 hasn’t brought me much in the way of creative audio projects. No albums are about to drop, no films are premiering soon. My ears have consumed more than they’ve created over these past few months. (Right now I’m on an unquenchable Ellie Goulding binge….and Evanescence.) My mixing headphones are a little dusty.
But this is not all bad. I’m diversifying. I’m changing it up. I’ve been given a chance to develop new skills and become a different kind of professional. I’m not letting that chance pass me by.
It’s good to be back. I’m going to do more. I’m going to write about more things and tell more interesting stories. Life is exciting and there’s a lot going on.
Stay in touch, Internet. Don’t lose heart at my lack of attention. We’ll make it through.
|||| I took a job in April 2013 for as Web Marketing Specialist for The QC Group, an industrial and manufacturing quality services company. Here, I’m doing everything from advertising to graphic design to video production to IT support and backend web programming. It’s a RICH learning environment for a young, hungry techie like myself. I’m grateful to be working for an excellent organization literally filled with excellent people who hold to excellent values. (2 Samuel 7:18b-19a…that’s a Bible reference. Google it.)

One of the growing number of webpages that I am now responsible for. Let me know if you see any typos!
Code. Looks like a delightful headache, no?
A random iced coffee….you can get one just like it if you visit the Spyhouse on Hennepin in Uptown, Mpls!
