Hey folks, sorry it’s been a while. During April, May, June of 2017 I experimented by publishing nine posts only to Medium. 3,413 words constitute those posts. They were viewed 105 times total.
If you’re curious, you can find those 9 posts here:

For the first time, I experimented with Quora. I answered about a dozen questions across multiple topics. I was most surprised by the reaction to my explanation of dead locks answering “what is a computer doing when it freezes?“. I often forget, to most people, software is like black magic.
In addition, some cool developments happened in May and June within our little Facebook community called “Being a Leader”. The group has finished two 30-day challenges. The first was ten+ pushups daily for thirty days. The second was ‘no complaining’ for thirty days. The group has grown to fifty members, and there is a waiting list of thirty people to join. Check it out here: (https://www.facebook.com/groups/beingaleader/)
The Medium experiment made me realize the joy in curation and customization. Ultimately I decided to return to WordPress. In the process of returning, I made some upgrades! I sprung for a custom domain and finally figured out how to set up email digests.
In the second half of June I focused on creating some new fitness and hygiene habits. Writing was put on hold. I lost five pounds, and I finally grew out my teenager-level flossing routine. Now, I am behind on sharing what I’ve learned. Recently I finished reading some great books including Option B by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant, and Expert Secrets by Russell Brunson. I’m ready to get back to the writing craft.
Thus, the blog is reborn as torrey.blog! Easy to remember, except almost no one outside of San Diego County can spell the name correctly. 😉
Thank you for reading.
