2009 in review

It's been an interesting year. I realize New Year's has already come and gone, but I thought it'd be worth writing some last 2009ish thoughts anyway, just for posterity. Here are some of the things I remember most.

Building a new blog

Although I've loved using Wordpress for the duration of this blog, recently I've been working on a custom replacement blog platform that I can host and maintain myself.

Months after the request was made...

I've been to North Dakota more than usual over the last few months, and I think every time I've been up there it's been suggested that I start a blog.

Nonetheless, I really want to keep in touch better, and maybe this is how to do it. So, for friends and family the whole country over, this post shall serve as my announcement of greater things to come. Or something like that...anyway, good-bye for now.
