It’s Been a While…

It is nearing 2 months since I last posted an article. I’m very overdue for a post. Why has it been so long? I’ll explain:

I have a full-time job, a family with 3 children, and I have been doing freelance Magento work on the side. All of this combined simply hasn’t been working for me. It’s too much. My family often gets the worst end of the deal when I’m busy with freelance. It was hard for them, stressful for me, and I needed to make a change.

I decided to stop most of my freelance work to focus on having more time with my family, so I pretty much went all out and stopped doing much of any work outside of my full-time job (including blogging). It has been very rewarding, and I’m glad I made that move. I know that I will never regret having spent a lot of time with my family, but I would definitely regret having not spent enough.

I still do almost nothing but Magento work, so I hope to start blogging more frequently with the things I’m doing/learning at work, so hopefully posts will pick up a bit more soon. I may even start opening up some open source Magento modules in Github soon as well (ones that I wanted to charge for, but I don’t want to deal with maintenance and support).

I hope you have found my blog useful, that’s what it’s here for. I hope to continue making it even more helpful.

    No excuses Pratt! jk of course. It is always better to spend time with the kids than slaving over code.

    To talk about myself, I am waiting your magento modules impatiently.
    Also, don’t forget, the life is very short so that enjoy as you get as.

    Yeah, man, I really understand you!
    I had been in same situation, I know how terrible it is…
    The most important thing in our life is a family. So, I appreciate your decision.

    I’m looking forward for new Magento articles, keep up the good work! :)
