Hirozed.me https://hirozed.me Jamie's Personal Musings en-US Hirozed dot me is PHP https://hirozed.me/posts/hz-is-php Originally, I used Bradley Taunt's barf script, but there was one snag or another would come up, preventing me from just writing posts.

I'm Back (I think) https://hirozed.me/posts/im-back Hello all. It's been a while, huh? Here's what happened. Betrayed by WordPress https://hirozed.me/posts/betrayed I have been working in WordPress for the length of my dev career. Up until now, that choice has been good to me. But recently, I have been questioning that very decsion. With the entire ecosystem heading toward JavaScript first, PHP winds up fading into the background.

It's odd that when you say, "I turned 50!," what it actually means is that you made it to that year. With that said, I've decided to make my best effort to start blogging. I have wanted to do the blogging thing for most of my dev life, but Impostor's Syndrome would kick in.
