An Occasional Thought...

An infrequent take on WordPress, WooCommerce, and the web.

As 2017 comes to a close, it seems fitting to do what so many others are doing and reflect back on the year that was.

So, the beginning of the year is always a time to set resolutions and commit to new challenges. As last year came to a close, I was starting to get back into photography a little bit and wanted to create something a bit more tangible to track my progress.

WordCamp Orlando was held last weekend and, as a newcomer to the WordPress community, I wanted to check it out and see how the WP community compares to the Drupal community…

A few weeks ago, I launched a new utility called DrupalVersion.com. It has one simple purpose: find out if your sites are up to date with the latest version of Drupal (6 or 7).

Last year around this time I posted an article here that wrapped up 2013 and set some goals for 2014. The slate has once again been wiped clean for the new year, but now’s as good of a time as any to reflect on the past year and set new goals for the coming one.

It’s the start of a new year and that means it’s the formation of new goals. Last year was huge – personally and professionally – but I’m already looking forward. Here are just a few of my resolutions, if you will, for 2014.

Ask anyone close to me and they’ll attest to the amount of time I spend reading about design and development, talking about it, and attendingĀ meetups. They might even tell you I’m pretty good at it.

We are currently in the process of redesigning our website at FliteHaus. That’s probably a bit of a generalization because, along with a redesign, we are reworking the site architecture, modernizing our workflow, and confirming our business philosophies. It’s the last one that’s got me thinking today. I love the idea of doing a “status check” on my beliefs as a professional in the web industry. While my philosophies coincide with those of FliteHaus, in general, I wanted to post a not-so-all-inclusive list of what I believe as a professional in this industry. These are in no particular order and there are, inevitably, places where my personal philosophies bleed into my professional ones. Here we go.

The last time I posted an article on this site was March 26th. That’s WAY too long ago. The reality is this: my full-time job simply required the majority of my time over the last 2 weeks. Two weeks ago, we at FliteHaus started a huge new project. It was a super fun, super huge, super rush project. We were hired to completely redesign a housing developer’s sales center, print collateral, and web presence. For those of you in the design industry like me, you know two weeks is very rushed for all that.
