Miss Me?

So I’m back. Why? A few reasons.

  • I’ve got a few posts percolating in me and I need a place to put them. I’ve got some block about putting them up at Vox. I think it’s because of the ads. If my words are going to earn a CPC, I want it to be on my AdSense account.
  • I wanted to give WordPress a try. Nothing against Movable Type – I just wanted to see if a new tool inspired anything. So far, I’m impressed. It took me less than an hour to get it installed, import my old MT entries, and install the new theme.
  • Speaking of, one of the main reasons I decided to give WordPress a spin was the lovely Hemingway theme. Every time I saw it on another site, I thought, wow, sweet theme. This marks the first time powazek.com has ever used a theme I didn’t design. That’s either a compliment to Hemingway or a comment on my newfound laziness. Either way, I’m cool with it.

I shut down all my blogs in the new year because I made this new year’s resolution: There’s enough pressure in life, don’t put more on yourself. I’m gonna try to keep that in mind still. So I may post here every day, or once a year. No promises, okay?

Hi, I’m Derek. I make awesome community-centric web stuff. I sometimes post things to Flickr and Twitter. I’m mostly harmless. More.
