Six month break from audits

I’m finally free of audits for at least the next 6 months at work. Yay! A welcome break from what has been an absolutely hellish 5 months with literal back to back audits. One would end and the next would start the following week, sometimes with some really annoying overlap. Mixed into all of this I’ve managed to keep writing for Eat Pray Vote, the political opinion site where I’m now a partner. Two weeks ago I completed migrating their site from WordPress.com to a self-hosted platform. A bit shaky at first, the site is now humming along and is faster than ever. Take a look at the site for yourself if interested in what I’ve written about, here’s my Author page.

Having a chance to see how a self-hosted platform works and the freedom that comes with it, I’m thinking of relaunching this blog. I’ve found a decently priced self-hosting plan that is just slightly more than a WordPress personal plan. I’ve wanted to change the domain as well to the real name of the blog as it seems to be something I’m sticking with going forward. When that happens, you’ll know. I won’t be deleting any of the old content until I know I can get a pro-rated return as I’ve finished the re-up for domain and hosting already this year.

The family front has been just as crazy and I found out that my daughter needs to have her tonsils taken out. It’s a scramble to get it scheduled so she doesn’t have to fight off another strep infection. We also want to get it done this year as we’ve hit our ridiculous healthcare deductible so we won’t have to cover any costs out-of-pocket. The whole system is fubar right now that doesn’t show any signs of improving anytime soon.

Well, this was just a quick update to let you all know I’m going to be back on a more regular basis now that work stress has reduced significantly. I’m also going to start getting caught up with the people I follow and will be commenting regularly again. I’m looking at you John, I miss our friendly conservative vs. moderate/liberal debates 🙂

Say something, be awesome
