I just spent the day with my son hiking along the trails of a nearby state park. My son is only 3 1/2 so some of the the sights, sounds, and smells are still new to him. Those trails I've walked a hundred times also becomes new to me when I allow myself to see it all through his eyes. I left the cell phone in the car and the only modern tools we carried were our walking sticks which were found and left in the woods we traveled. It was a good day for both of us and the experience served as a reminder to me the value of taking a break from IT now and then.
For the rest of this summer I will be turning it down a notch on the number of posts that are placed on the "front page" here at CMSReport.com. You shouldn't notice a difference in quality, but I suspect some of you may miss the quantity of new posts. While we do schedule the time for when a post or excerpt is placed on the front page, by choice we do no automation when it comes to the placement of excerpts on the front pages. In other words, for an article to make the front page...I need to be sitting at the computer and that's not going to happen as often during the summer months.
If you really want to help, create an account today and start contributing your own CMS stories here at this site. Even suggestions for links to other articles is appreciated.
My ultimate goal for this site is to see guest bloggers offering some differing perspectives from my own to the mix. Finally, don't worry, I'm too addicted to CMS to not say something about it for very long. I also have a lengthy professional report on IT user support that I plan to deliver under several posts. This report will be similar but better to the research paper I posted earlier this year. This is going to be a great summer!
