Moving to mpickell.com

I finally got around to setting up my own wordpress site… I can finally use syntax highlighters and whatever other plugins i want — wooooo!!!

Anyway, i’m going to eventually repost all posts here with a link to there so they are easier to read.

For now, check out my newest post on Converting an old Scoop CMS to WordPress at mpickell.com!

I’m still working on the site, I just threw it up there today.  so it looks a little “out of the box” right now.

Great video and post on persisting

This is not a post on database persistence…

I really believe in learning from failing and persisting through problems to find solutions, whether it is fixing my house or making an HTML5 canvas scrollable.  I think it is one of my major strengths and the best way I learn.

Here are two links to articles I just read/watched this morning that I really enjoyed.  Hope you enjoy them, the video is 5 minutes.  Summary: Whatever you do, just do it.  Keep doing it and don’t stop.  You’ll keep getting better at it.

Ira Glass talks about how he started, and Seth Godin covers the topic of writer’s block.
