I haven’t blogged in a while; I said it was because I didn’t have time but I was mostly lying.

I wasn’t completely lying; time is rare. I was mostly lying, though, because I always find time for the things that get done. Blogging could have been one of those things, but it wasn’t because I got caught up with the facade of wanting to pretend business was going really well and didn’t see the point of lying on the record. Business and life are actually going pretty well, but “pretty well” is no fun to write about and the problems that did come up were mostly of the sort that I shouldn’t write about publicly.

Anyway, I wrote a thing a while ago and for a long time after I felt really stupid about writing it because it was honest and vulnerable and shaping up to be a big public failure. Now it might only be a small failure, because we shipped software and even if no one likes it at least we can say we did it: meet Parley.

This post is mostly a note to myself to stop being afraid of things, of admitting I have goals and dreams and wishes. Also, here are the three articles I’m going to write in the next month, in any order:

  • What “Cash is King” really means
  • Why “Ship early, ship often” is stupid advice, but also good
  • Thoughts on emerging markets, and the effect of many fresh competitors

Your willingness to be honest and vulnerable makes you a class act in my books. Hope it's not weird that I'm suddenly commenting on your blog... though I may not be able to relate directly to the field itself, it seems that a lot of our ideals outside of the business align, and it's great to see that come through your software programming work. Keep on keepin' on, my friend.
