When I logged in this morning I noticed that on my user account page it says that I've been a member for "1 year 23 hours." It's been a year, huh? That's crazy. I thought I would throw a post up here talking about my experiences so far with having my own blog. First, here are my stats from Google Analytics.

Just wanted to post a shout out to the World Wide Web! Today is the 20th Birthday of the WWW, so Happy Birthday! Obviously the web has changed the way we do everything. If it didn't exist then I wouldn't have a job—so for that I thank the WWW! (image courtesy of ReadWriteWeb.com)
I just downloaded an app on my iPhone that will allow me to blog to my Drupal site blog (this one). It's a pretty slick app that so far works really well. The only thing that I'm not liking so far is that I can't add categories (tags) on the fly, there's just a list of tags used on my blog. Thats pretty nifty in and of itself. Anyway, so far so good! The app is called iBlogger.
When it comes to anything on the computer I like to find a better and more efficient way to do things. I've been this way for a while, and it's something that I don't think will ever change until I get older. In my opinion this is a good trait to have, and it may find me appealing down the road in my career.
I have now been a member of drupal.org for a year! That's pretty exciting. I was thinking that it might be fun to put a post up talking about the things that have happened in the last year, and the things that I have learned. This might be a good resource to those just researching different CMSs, so here goes:
What a year it's been for me! A year ago we made the final decision to go with Drupal for our CMS at my work. I can say that decision determined a lot of my future in web design/development. Here's what has happened in the last year:
It has been a while since my last post. The last few weeks have been really crazy both at home and at work so I have a good excuse.
Last week I was in Atlanta for some training on some new software for work. The software is Customer Relationship Management, a.k.a. CRM. Nowadays keeping track of customers and their history in a company is next to impossible without some good software lending a hand. That's where Salesforce.com's software comes in.
About a month or two after I started my job I was asked to start looking at different CRM Solutions for the company. Since I had been hired on to be the Web Administrator they figured that I would know a good CRM "web app" if I saw one.
