Christmas break is over!!

And a long break it was. My last post (below) was pretty much two months ago. Fairly slack of me, although I will admit some significant changes have occurred (more on that later). for now though I am going to announce a personal challenge, which I hope you will all benefit from at some point or simply appreciate.

The Challenge:

For the remainder of this year (Approximately 46 weeks) I am going to endeavour to publish a post once a week.

This is in no way a new concept or idea, it is something I came across a couple of years ago courtesy of Mr Merlin Mann (of 43Folders fame) and Jonathan Coulton. In short Merlin either interviewed Jonathan Coulton or discussed a challenge Jonathan and independent musician had given himself, and that was quite simply produce 'a thing a week'.

Theoretically this should be fairly straight forward - I've a backlog of at least 36 ideas to write about and more being noted all the time. In addition to this I am presenting at two conferences over the next couple of months (PACRIM IT Service Management and IT Showcase Asia) and feel these presentations should be underpinned by supportive articles.

Other challenges of course is juggling work and kids, throw in a trip to Malaysia and Antarctica and this is shaping up to be a pretty interesting challenge.

Your part in this, quite simply provide some comments/feedback on what I am posting, if I'm slacking off let me know. My intent would be to make a post by Sunday of every week.

    I look forward to see your weekly posts, however, with all your trips and presentations I think you can give yourself a break every now and then =)

  2. Andrew,

    Thanks for the comment. Have to admit though it would be challenge if I was able to give myself a break hear and then. I'll admit though some posts may simply be photo's with a brief synopsis - especially when talking about Antarctica.
