It’s been a long time since I posted here. I mean a long time even for me 😉 If you read this soon after it was posted you’ll see that I have gone back to bloging using Ray Camden’s BlogCFC and the layout of the blog is BlogCFC’s default skin. I wanted to wait until I re-skined it before switching but I was starting to have all sorts of problems with BlogFusion (the blog software I was using before) and I needed to switch ASAP. In the next little while I will gradually give pixellog the same look as thge rest of the site. I’ll also post again later to explain why I gave up on BlogFusion and went back to BlogCFC.
Anyway, going back to my not posting in a long time, the last year has been very crazy for us here (more on that later as well) and it left me little time for posting. But it was not just that. I used to think that if I didn’t have something really important or useful to say then I shouldn’t post at all. I missed out on on sharing many discoveries and things I have learned in recent months that could have been of interest to the like minded people who come to this site. I have the intention to post more frequently from now on and live up to my original goal of making this site a vehicle for self expression but also an experimental ground and a way to share my experience.
I came to the realization that I had not found my "voice" yet… that unique style or tone that makes one’s writing interesting to its readers and have them coming back for more. I read several blogs because I like the particular blogger’s take on a variety of subjects. They have helped me broaden my outlook and I want to find a similar "voice". I already have a style that is my own but I was pusposefully limiting the kind of things I wrote about here. This means there may be more posts of a somewhat personal nature in the future and more stuff about things not related to working the Web. But there will be more of that too of course. Spring is out in full force up here and I feel as good as the weather looks outside and I want to share that energy with you all…

Welcome back, Stephane! 🙂
I am searching for my voice as well, but while writing at my own blog I realised that I’ll find it sooner or later… 🙂
Spring is here as well… just I feel too tired to feel it… :-/
I understand about feeling tired… It seems I can never get enough sleep these days.
As for finding one’s voice, the best way is to keep writing but I find it hard sometimes to decide if something I find interesting would also be interesting to other people. And sometimes it’s just hard for me to find the time…
