In it, I pledged to blog more.
Today, I am not so proud to say that I have mostly failed to do so. If I had to come up with a reason, I'd have to say that, personally, 2011 turned out a whole lot different than I was expecting, back then—and not in a good way.
Over the last year, however, I did post a few things that I think were interesting, and worth of a re-read (at risk of making this post into a clip show):
- PHP Community Conference
- …a post about why I was excited about going to the PHP Community Conference in Nashville, last May. It turned out to be even better than I expected, and I'm really excited that plans are coming together for a 2012 edition.
- Gimme Bar no longer on CouchDB and Gimme Bar on MongoDB
- …a pair of posts describing some problems we had with CouchDB, and our smooth transition to MongoDB. We're still on MongoDB, and for the most part, I still really like it. I'd hinted about these posts in last year's Ideas of March post.
- Aficionado's Curse/Pessimistic Optimism
- …a post that I'm particularly proud of; mostly because I've finally managed to document (and coin a term, I hope) for why things seem so bad, but aren't actually so bad.
- HTTP/1.0 and the Connection header
- …finally, over Christmas, I managed to post about HTTP things (-:
I was really hoping to do more. Last year, I suggested that I might turn my talk on Fifty tips, tricks and tools into a series of small blog posts, and I'd still like to do this. Hopefully in 2012. I also have a list of other things that I'm really interested in writing about. It's just matter of making time to do so. I plan to do that, this year. Starting with this post.
I'd also like to get around to writing a thing or two about beer, this year…
Much of what I said last year is still on my mind. I still miss the blogs we kept, 5+ years ago. Let's fix that.
