There are a metric ton of blog posts here (I know because I’ve weighed them),
but if you want the Cliff’s Notes version, check this out!

Yeah, WordPress rocks and all — but it’s a platform that can sometimes make it hard to find just what you’re looking for...

So here’s my blog, broken up into neat and tidy (and sometimes bizarre) bite-size blobs. Just in case you’re looking for something specific, that is.

So poke around — or strategically stalk the info you’re specifically seeking. Totally up to you!
