First of all, to anyone who cares and may have have wondered why I stopped posting (a club big enough to meet in a phone box), I apologize. It wasn't a premeditated decision to stop blogging. Nothing terrible happened. I just got preoccupied and and forgot to blog.
Last April, I teamed up with great friend, sailing buddy and now business partner, Phil Asche to develop a business I have admired for many years called Relationship Audits. I have entertained entrepreneurial aspirations forever and although I started a couple of firms about 10 years ago it was a little half-hearted first-time round. These last six months have been all-consuming and while things are starting to pick up again last year was a tough year to become a small businessman.
There was no conscious decision to stop blogging, my attention was so focused on the business I just fell out of the habit. Before I knew it, months had gone by with only a couple of posts. I was wondering if I should put a fork in the blog altogether. Over the last month I received few emails and comments wondering what was going on, curious if the blog or its blogger were broken. It got me thinking that after five years of dedication to this Messing About thing I should keep going.
So bugger it all, I'm back.
