I've been thinking about my business, my skills and knowledge, the type of projects that I do, and the best CMS. This is a brain dump post with a few thoughts about all of that. I may add to the post as my thinking develops.

A bit of a throwaway question I know. But, I'm finding it increasingly difficult to find the time to work on (redevelop) my own sites (this blog included, as you can probably tell).

My review of the year. Things I have done and enjoyed. Work, conferences and meet-ups and coworking. Running and parkruns. Cycling a lot.

Here’s my summary of the year in that respect.
