The New Digs

Welcome to my new blog.  With the last post, I told you a little about myself.  Now I figured I’d tell you a little about the website.  Things are a bit in flux right now.  I might move a sidebar here, a couch there, that sort of thing.  As it stands now, though, there are two features that I’m sure will stay.

The first is the "Recent Tweets" bar.  I got into Twitter when the jQuery team decided to post updates via Twitter.  I signed up and quickly realized what a useful tool it could be.  I post on there often to my wife, coworkers, and others I’ve met along the way.

The second feature is "TechyDad’s shared items."  I use Google Reader to keep up with the RSS Feeds of various websites.  I’ve liked Google’s "Share" feature for some time, but couldn’t find a specific way of using it.  Now I can.  Now, when I share an news item, it will appear on my list.  It might be a recipe from A Year of CrockPotting or an interesting article on web development over at Ajaxian.

Now for some stuff that will change.  The search bar might move, the Categories link will take on a "cloud" appearence.  The Blogroll will be more customized.  The other items on the sidebar might stay or they might go.  I’m not sure at the moment.

Overall, though, I’m liking my new digs and I’m ready to settle in.

Welcome To TechyDad

Welcome to my new digs.  I guess it’s only fair that I introduce myself.  My name is TechyDad, but you can call me J.

Ok, so neither of those are my real name.  Here’s the deal.  Way back when the Web was young, I forged my online identity.  Me being young and all and only really needing to worry about myself, I used my full name freely.  Now, however, I’m in my 30’s have a wife and two wonderful children.  My wife started blogging and has kept her blog anonymous.  (Or as anonymous as possible.)

I’ve always wanted a place to comment freely.  I’m a member of several web sites (and run a few of my own), but some things I feel I just can’t post about with my real name tied to it.  Thus, TechyDad.com.

Like I said, I’m in my 30’s and have a wonderful wife and two wonderful children.  Like myself, I’m going to keep them anonymous also, but since I can’t just refer to them as Wife, Kid #1, and Kid #2, I’ll refer to them as B (my wife), NHL (my oldest son), and JSL (my youngest son).

More about me to come.
