Purchase Decision Timeline

I Don't Have Time to Blog

I don't have time to blog this week.  I really don't.  I've been in meeting after meeting the past two weeks.  Today I had two scheduled for the same time ... oops.  I just finished a meeting with a new client, and I am waiting on a meeting with an old client.  I simply don't have time to blog this week.  So, what am I going to do?  I'm going to blog.

It was undoubtedly simpler, somewhat easier, and at times more fun, but I did not have the same skill set I have now. In a year from now, I should be a more skilled web designer than I am now. I think this is partially due to years of experience, but it's also due to the push of technology.
