Month-to-date

by Marty Alchin on November 25, 2007

Most of you should know that I’m participating in National Blog Posting Month, with the goal of posting at least once every day for the entire month of November. So far, I’ve held up much better than I thought I would, but it’s taken its toll on me.

My articles haven’t exactly been up to the level I’d like them to be, but it’s good to get the information out there. I also haven’t managed to live up to all the topics I set out at the beginning of the month.

Ultimately, I’m glad for the experience, as it’s given me the chance to really examine what insight I have to offer, how well I can offer it, and how quickly I can provide quality content.

One of the biggest things that this month has done is give me a million more reasons to get off Blogger and put up my own Django-powered blog. I’m using coltrane to do it, but it’s not quite finished. I still have some template and styling issues, and I have to get all my entries and previous comments into the database. I’ve gotten everything prior to this month included in the database, so I’ll be working furiously this week to get everything else put in, so I can get it up and running before the end of the month.

So, I’ll keep posting this week, and expect the site to get a complete makeover later this week as well. After the month is over, I’ll keep posting, but I’ll make sure to spread them out enough that I can provide the quality you definitely deserve.
