At My Job
I started a new job, working on the GoDaddy's E-commerce team. I've been here for nearly two years now, and I feel that I've really gotten the hang of it. To be honest, this was a really hard transition for me, much harder than I expected. I genuinely think I'm better for it, and now that I feel like I've got the initial learning curve behind me I'm rearin' to go.
I got to meet up with a few of my co-workers at WordCamp US this year, that was awesome.
We're getting ready for second summer, and before I know it, we're going to be at our winter spot in Texas, where Kate and I mostly focus on professional endeavors, and essentially hibernate, reflect, and visit family.
One of this year's goals was originally to purchase land in Vermont, but that didn't pan out like we thought it might. We put in a couple offers, got cold feet, and then decided to lean into RV life harder by purchasing two additional campers instead. TL;DR, the idea is to have a "summer rig", a "winter rig", and a "travel rig". We'll use the travel rig to bounce between the summer and winter rig, and also use it for side trips while parked at one of these these two locations.
As the leaves are changing, I'm starting to think how my Winter schedule looks. Like last year, I expect that I'll have a bit more time since we're not traveling as much, and should be able to pick up some side work.
A key project I'm spending much of my time working on, aside from backfilling the content on this site, is the Fields API for WordPress. It's something I'm keenly interested in seeing come to fruition - I think it will have a profound impact on the future of WordPress.
