I’m behind on blogging. Not just writing, I’m behind on reading blogs as well. I hit 1000 unread posts today, and scrapped them all. I can offer up excuses like I was on the road most of July so far, my son hasn’t been feeling well, the start of the fiscal year is always busy (all true – I had to get up and soothe Patrick back to sleep after he woke up coughing as I wrote this post) but there’s no real point in making excuses. I started an outlook task list of “Shit to Blog” back at TechEd, and so far I’ve only removed two items from the list. Part of the reason for that is that I’ve been reading Software Factories which isn’t generally available, so I’m holding off on blogging my thoughts until the book ships. Next week, I’m off for New Zealand and Australia for TechEd, which is going to be awesome but probably mean still less blogging.
