No not really missing in action for four years, just been away from Ianism. It’s been an interesting four years to say the least – experience wise, personally and from a business point of view.
I thought I would resurrect the old domain, but I’m still not totally certain what I will do with it. For the time being, I’ll likely stay away from subjects of politics, liberty and religion. Having said that, I still have all the old posts and comments and I’ve been asked by a few people that I respect to put them back up. I may… or may not. I have not decided.
Due to some commitments I was making back in November of 2007, took Ianism down. I felt I did not have the time to devote to this blog and was rather looking forward to spending some time in other ways. There have been quite a few changes in that time, including an additional 4 years of wrinkles, poorer eyesight and stronger glasses, and quite a bit of traveling. My “wee man” is growing into an awesome son – and my older three sons are all doing things I’m very proud of them for.
When I get a chance, I’ll get my links back up and running to my favorite bloggers – and I’ve found some new ones since 2007 as well. Interestingly, I recall Marcel over at Stageleft (his blog is now invite only?) taking bets that I’d be back blogging with Ianism in less than a year. Well… he would have lost that one!
Do to some changes, my business has changed a bit with quite a bit of emphasis on Canadian SEO as well as assisting American clients. Local Search is also now a big thing with the huge popularity of smart phones. With the proliferation of review sites, online reputation management is another service I’ve been helping some with.
What’s The Same:
Still continue to have my interests with our fly fishing site as well as the one devoted to the book publishing industry. Home Wine Making continues to be an interest although I have not made much wine in the past couple of years.
Beans, the Boston Terrier Puppy! I’ll post photos soon. After much research though, I’m convinced that a raw meat diet for dogs is best. After switching Beans over to that, and then discovering that the so-called “premium” brand of food I had been feeding him was subject to a recall due to poisonous levels of a carcinogenic fungi, I was very happy I had switched him.
Well, enough for now. More on the new interests and hobbies as we go along here. I have no clue how regularly I will post here; it may be quite random but we’ll see.
