Hit or Miss

Getting back on the blogging horse.

Been busy with lots of changes to my weblog. Along with the redesign, the backend is now using tighter SQL queries and table structures. I’ve added a new sidebar of QuickLinks for URLs shamelessly stolen from better, more popular weblogs. And most importantly, I’ve disabled comment posting on any entry older than 2 weeks.

But I’m a little reluctant to start posting again. I’ve figured out that my mom has been reading my weblog and it’s making me feel kind of self-conscious.

Oh, hey, Matt… great discussion on comment area design over at Antipixel, thought you’d enjoy it.

I think every mom would be happy to have a son like you, Matt.

Don’t let your mother’s reading make you self conscious… my relationship with my parents has acutally *improved* since they started checking in on my site once in a while. Granted, I lose them with technical stuff sometimes, and I often forget until after I’ve posted something vulgar or crass that they might read it, but overall they like the peek into my life, and it helps them see me as an adult (sometimes even as a *professional*) in a way they otherwise might not have.

Hey Matt, if you would write or call once in a while I wouldn’t have to read your postings to know what is going on in your life! Moms are always concerned about their ‘babies’ even if they are grown adults. Hope you know how much we love you and how proud we are of you (Also hope you get this because you know I’m not ‘techno’ like you).
