It's been almost two years since my last post and while I can make all sorts of excuses and present a ton of evidence for why my original goal of one blog a week didn't pan out, the fact remains that I got a measly 5 posts in before I quit.
Part of it was ambition outstripping realistic expectations. I simply don't have enough time to write the length of posts I thought I'd set out to write, and once I missed one week, then another week, and then another, it started to become easier to just ignore the blog altogether if only because the effort to bring it up to date just kept building.
So Tom wins. Go Tom.
Without going into any details, some of the factors that kept me from posting often (or at all) have been eliminated, so I'm cautiously optimistic that I'll be able to start posting again. Maybe I'll even talk a bit about why blogging seems to be such a chore for me personally at some point, but I think I'll just stick with something simple for the foreseeable future.
I've recently started conducting interviews again, and I've come across some really great problems for candidates to solve on the phone screen as well as the whiteboard. A lot of them aren't original problems, but I think for the next several weeks at least I'll present solutions and explanations for some select problems that I like.
