I haven't blogged on this website in well over a year. In fact, in 12 years of writing on this site I've only published 599 posts. That's on average 50 posts a year. I think I've figured out why it has been so hard for me to add content and posts to this site in the way I had hoped. I was focusing more on getting posts perfect than on getting the basics covered and published.

In order to get back to writing more content more frequently I'm trying something new. I've created a new website with a new approach to the process of writing and publishing content. If you've enjoyed any of the posts on this site over the last 12 years I hope you'll take a few minutes to check out my new engineering notebook website at You can read all about this change and the tools I used to create the new website by reading this post.

While I'm not abandoning this website or taking any of the posts down, I plan to write all new posts over on the notebook website. I sincerely hope you'll check it out. Thank you so much for reading the content I've posted here and providing me with feedback over the years. I greatly appreciate it.

  1. I read your article "What's This Engineering Notebook All About?". Interesting approach. It seem like it will work out for you. Thanks for sharing.

    FYI, I went to leave this note on that post and your Disqus setup does not allow guest comments.

  2. @David - thank you for taking the time to read the post and offer your feedback! I'll need to look into the Disqus commenting item. I didn't realize I had anonymous comments disabled or that you could even do that. I need to think about the best way to allow comments on the notebook site while ensuring I'm encouraging the right community. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I've filed issue ( so I don't forget about this.

    Your new approach is really good. I will adopt some good approach when I will build my website and I will have some idea from so that I can do the same.
