Sneaking back in… (2020 edition)

Oh, hi there! Just… you know… sneaking back in…

Some of you may have noticed that I have been offline for a while. I shut down my blog, stayed off social media, and took a break from everything this summer.

The short version of this blog post is: I have reopened my blog and I’m looking forward to catching up with you on social media 💙 But like the title says, I will be sneaking back in. Slowly. The world is a very weird place, and I don’t expect things to go back to normal any time soon. Adjusting is going to take time.

It’s going to take time for me to update myself on recent technical changes, and even more time updating my content. I know a lot of my content is already outdated. It bothers me, and I want to update it. But it’s not going to happen immediately or all at once. And that’s ok. Because I’m not ok, you might not be ok, the world is certainly not ok, and it’s ok to not be ok for a while.

It will get better, eventually. Right now, I’m prioritizing my family, my health, my friends, my job, trying to do better. This stuff? *gestures at blog* This can wait. But all my posts are available again, because hey, even though some of it might be slightly outdated, I still hope it can be useful for some 😊

…now what?

Today is the last day of my vacation, and I have big plans. I’m going to sit outside and read, then I’m going to go back inside to watch TV, then I’m going to get a good night’s sleep. A proper, lazy, relaxing Sunday 🌞

Summer in Norway
Sneaking back in... like this butterfly

Tomorrow, I will start working again. And that’s a natural way of getting back into things, reading up on the latest technical releases, tweak some posts, update some slide decks… And then I’ll take it from there. One day at the time. Like we all have to.

It’s good to be back. I’ve missed you all 🤗
