Happy 15 years to me

At this point, I may actually have too many websites, but I’m also really excited about this one, and here’s why.

In the past, I used The GATE’s Blog, The GATEKeeper’s Blog, as my personal blogging space, but as the site has grown and become its own entity, that seemed less and less like a good idea.

Were visitors coming in to The GATE really interested in reading about what I did last weekend? Maybe, but it made the site look more and more like a personal space when I want it to be its own thing. I may represent the site, but I will also always strive to make it stand on its own.

That’s where this site came in. Over the years I’ve had lots of accounts, but I like that this site is personal, not just another social media account. I may be on LinkedIn, About.me, and all of the rest, but I never felt like there was a space that made sense for me to relax and write whatever I felt like. This site may be a kind of resume, but I also feel that, because it’s not part of my other sites, I can talk about anything I’m doing.

For those of you who have followed along with my various adventures, thanks for reading this as well, and for anyone knew coming in, thanks for stopping in.
