Rizal, who made the little widget that folks use to read this blog from beginning to end, remarked that

Patrick McKenzie used to post daily but I guess his business has stabilized and he’s moved on to other things

There is a nugget of truth there, but to give the rest of the story:  The business is mostly stable, but I keep tweaking things and, when I have time to both tweak and talk, I try to talk about them.  Hopefully later this week I’ll be able to talk about why I just paid $12 for one day on the Content Network and tentatively think I liked it.  (That should be Hopefully #2.  Hopefully #1 is that the positive ROI continues for longer than a day.)

The big reasons my posting has slipped:

#1 — Went home for a month and spending time with my family was much more important to me than the uISV.  (I typically only get to see them once a year, and don’t know when the next time I’ll have a month of leisure is.)

#2 — I came back to Japan and immediately got thrown into the salaryman thing, which I got back from today at about 9:00 pm — unseasonably early!  (This is what I get for joining the private sector and leaving my cushy government job.  Oof.  Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to get to bed to make it up at 6:30 in the morning to get to work on time and do it again…)

#3 — I generally don’t like posting to say “Well, I’ve got nothing to say”.  When I have more stuff to say, rest assured, there will be more and (God and day-job business conditions permitting) more regular posting.


Rizal praises me as a “hero of the MicroISV blogging community”.  I’m not a hero by any means, but I’m glad folks find some of the ramblings around here to be of use.  That is one major reason I keep writing them.
