Blogging Hiatus Over

Submitted by on November 10, 2010 – 11:29 am5 Comments

Wow, it’s been awhile, hasn’t it?

I had to press “pause” on this blog for a little while, because between my two jobs, I suddenly found myself working about 60 hours a week.  But, I did not pause in my efforts for TME.  In the interim time I have gotten countless emails from folks offering advice, found a Mongolian language tutor, and have been doing gear testing and physical training as well.

The good news is that I have changed jobs and my new work will allow me considerably more time to post here, so you can expect more regular posting from now on.

    who designed your website? Its awesome..

    I loved how you created the background. I am in the process of creating a blog and there are so many out there that have issues. Can I ask, when you uploaded it, did you have problems, or did you have to unzip it? Again, great job!

      I didn’t just upload the background, I did editing to the rest of the theme as well. I’m a freelance web designer (and in fact am working on a redesign of this site) and did the work offline through MAMP and then just shifted it from my personal server to my hosted server here. I don’t like to zip the files as it tends to cause problems, and instead I just move stuff wholesale using an FTP client (I prefer Transmit).
