Blog changes for 2015

Happy New Year everyone! I had a great 2014 and I am looking forward to 2015. For the last couple weeks I have been busy updating my blog. You may have noticed some of the changes already. I would to discuss them as some are less obvious than others and point out an important change for 2015.

As I am sure you have noticed, I have changed the theme of my blog. The old theme looked dated and was difficult to maintain. While the authors of the theme constantly released updates, my changes are what caused most of the maintenance issues. These new theme requires far less customizations and looks much more modern. I am concerned the theme will not be updated nearly as often as my old theme, but I am considering contributing to the theme directly. I am curious what you think so let me know!

I have done a complete overhaul of the categories of my posts. I have narrowed it down to:

  • VMware  (RSS) – this is where the majority of my posts to date will reside
  • System Administration (RSS) – this is for non-VMware technology posts typically about administration
  • Various (RSS) – miscellaneous technology posts and non-technology posts
  • Fitness (RSS) – a new category that I plan to contribute to in 2015

As many of you know, I have prioritized my fitness over the last two years. I would like to talk about my experiences as well as the lifestyle decisions and changes I have made. My primary blogging focus will remain technology focused, but I am targeting two fitness posts a month. Note this change means that those following my RSS feed will begin to see non-technology posts, but with the categories cleaned up you can now sign up for the posts you are interested in.
