My Popular WordPress Tags

Tuesday, December 29th, 2015

I’ve spent entirely too much time the last two days working on this blog.

Updating Tags and Metadata

Thursday, February 9th, 2012

As my job search drags on, I decided to retroactively edit a pile of old blog posts. This blog has been going, for better or for worse, since 2005. I’ve been maintaining a home page online since 1995. Sometimes you have to devote time to maintenance.
