Announcing Bob Speaks

You may have seen the first episode go out this morning, but I am officially announcing my own, personal, tiny podcast called Bob Speaks.

It will essentially just be my own thoughts on many different subjects … but kept to 15 minutes or less. I’m sure the first episodes will be terrible, but I hope that it will get better.

When it gets listed with iTunes, I’ll add the link to this site, but until then you can subscribe to the podcast-only feed at http://bobmartens.net/category/bob-speaks/feed. Otherwise, the episodes will also go out in the main feed for this site as well.

I hope you enjoy.

My Hiatus

I’m hoping that I’ll get back into writing soon, but the past month has been filled with two things:

  1. Vacations
  2. Yard work

With the first birthday of our son coming up, things should slow down a little bit to allow me to write a little more. Until then, you can catch me on This One Podcast every week with two of my long-time friends.

Disqus Comments

Comments have been moved to Disqus so that I don’t really need to worry about them anymore, plus you are able to log in with other accounts (e.g. Twitter) and they handle the spam filtering as well.

The old comments should be exported over soon. Thanks!

Launching

So I finally just bit the bullet and put something out. After maybe four internal revisions and plenty of trial and error (and talking to myself), I have pushed out http://deck78.com.

There are going to be changes to the site in the future, but what you see right now is what you are getting until I find some more time to really sink my teeth into it. The main objective now is to actually start making some money and also get ready for the addition to our family come the end of July and other projects around here.

Tomorrow also marks the first unofficial gathering of tech people in New Ulm. It should be a good time and I am really looking forward to it. I’m hoping to have more information about that group in the future.

That’s about it at the moment. Thanks!

Pre-Announcement Announcement: Deck78

I pre-announced it today on Twitter so I thought I’d do the same thing here just to make it a little more “official.”

I purchased the domain for Deck78 (or Deck 78 or deck78 … whatever) today and Deck78 is going to be the kindred spirit of Replosion, my prior failed adventure into owning a business (and may it live in peace).

More information will be coming in the future.

Also, an imaginary cookie to the people who can figure out the reference in the name.
