A Day of Firsts

Flipping the calendar

Flipping the calendar

Today started a new month.

I love that feeling flipping the calendar to a new month brings: A wrapping-up of last month’s projects, pitfalls, victories and life lessons, rewarded with a clean slate.

And so, here it is. After much nail-biting, self-reflection, self-doubt, quashing of the internal “impostor”, and with the encouragement of many smart and talented friends, I present to you, a blog.

Just writing those words doesn’t even feel natural – not yet. I’m stumbling, but bear with me. I promise to get better.

My intention for this space is to offer up cheery little technical antidotes, amid lessons-learned and (hopefully) some humor.

Welcome, September 1st. Thanks for the hope. Thanks for the fresh start.
