Welcome to my newest website

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting my new website.

I’ve changed my web host and have restarted my personal WordPress blog.  I want to start posting personal articles, stories, pictures, and most likely will be WordPress development related stuff.  I’m thinking of weening myself from Facebook to this site.  I’m currently in Costa Rica sitting on a balcony at Hotel Mimos about to go to dinner, so this is kinda short.  Please subscribe, and I’ll try to keep this up to date as much as possible.
