Recently I started listening to the audiobook of Gretchen Rubin’s The Happiness Project.  I’m at a section where Rubin is talking about establishing her Happiness Project blog. That made me think about when I used to blog on a regular basis, either on this site or on LiveGeekOrDie, and also about what I could write about now.

Currently I’m engaged in a pretty intense Java bootcamp sponsored by my employer and run by the Software Guild.  It’s kind of like going back to university, except I’m actually trying to succeed this time instead of partying and sleeping like I did in my 20’s.  I am halfway through at the moment (total course length is three months) and my mind boggles sometimes at how much I’ve learned at the time.

As a result I’m thinking of using my blog as a way to reinforce what I’ve learned by forcing myself to talk about it.  We’ll see how successful it is, but one step at a time.
