At long last (why do these things always take so long?!), I’m happy to announce that the new and improved mikearauz.com is up and running (or walking at least).
As usual, there’s plenty more that I’d like to do with the new site, and I will continue to tinker and make small improvements over the next several months. As old readers will notice, I’ve moved my blog off of my home domain, and over to mikearauz.wordpress.com. One of the main reasons why I decided to do this was to give myself a place to play, a site that it would be easy to tinker with and keep my novice development skills in shape, without worrying about screwing up my blog presence.
Whether anyone likes it or not, I’ve become a fairly prolific content sharer over the past couple years. I now have personal outgoing content streams across 6 profiles: Twitter, Tumblr, Google Reader, Delicious, Buzzfeed, Facebook. And I publish original content on my blog, on Slideshare, and on Flickr.
This latest iteration of my web presence is an attempt to make it easier for people to connect with me and follow what I’m up to on whichever platforms or type of content they prefer.
For my blog, I wanted to focus on the writing again. When I look back over the past few years of blogging, the posts I like most are the ones that went deep. The ones that took the most thought. The ones that I took the most care to write well. I want to do more of that kind of blogging. And I wanted the environment where it lived to reflect that focus.
