Non-tech articles


I just wanted to say that I really enjoy the non-tech articles that are starting to appear on the site. Paul’s health and work posts, and Brad’s parenting post are good examples. I’m not a dad, but I’m soon going to be an uncle, and the insight is good. It’s something I’d not really thought much about. Not being a parent, I always thought about the topic very academically, but Brad’s article made me consider the real world need for some understanding.

So, long story short, thanks for these, and keep them coming!

Merry Christmas to all of you!

    I'll admit to some trepidation here. The health stuff is controversial, I know. But it shouldn't be: The science is sound. And this is something that I think impacts many of us. But I can feel the arguments coming in writing that stuff. It's inevitable.

    I'm not sure how far to take this. I won't be reviewing movies per se. And I have more questions than answers, really.

    Anyway. Thank you.

      No, I don't blame you for not getting into the losing world of the entertainment review. If you reviewed an Xbox game every now and then, I don't think that would be bad at all.

      As for the health articles, I can't complain. I'm a constantly overweight guy who has had trouble losing weight. I really am interested in hearing about someone else's real-world experiences so I'm going to be keeping an eye out for those. Thank you for having the confidence to share your journey with us who need the inspiration.

      And if you ever have questions on what to do and want to pose them to the community, I'll always give a straight answer. So far, though, so good!

    Appreciate the feedback...I do like writing about 'things' happening in my life and others have asked to do more on the 'raising a kid' topic but will also admit, creating thoughtful articles on the topic regular is a little bit harder than tech.
