Like many folks, 2020 was a trying time for me because of the pandemic. I’ve stepped back and now realize everything I have to be thankful for personally and professionally. There were a few low points during the height of the pandemic, mind you.
I seem to spend so many of my waking days in Microsoft Office. When I get the chance, I like to switch it up and use another application for writing. After spending the last year using Dropbox Paper to write blog posts, I switched over to Google Docs and I’m finding out I like it.
My headline says it all. I want a do-over for my start of summer 2020. It’s Memorial Day weekend. I took today off and spent the morning reading and spent some time on some personal writing projects in the afternoon that seem to always get blown off for billable work.
Here’s the rest of my Friday in review:
I slept in a bit late this morning because I had the day off from work.
My morning was spent on the couch reading for myself.
I’ve often said that one of the first casualties of my paid writing work are my personal writing projects like this blog you’re reading. Today, I added links to my recently published work over on SearchITOperations.com, SearchCloudComputing.com, and opensource.com
I finally updated the About page to this blog after way too much procrastination. On a related note, I’ve been an infrequent user of WordPress and finally dug into the current platform’s Gutenberg editor and formatting tools. I like what I see.
