I sort of lost the thread of this for a while. It was the usual hiatus: have a few (or more) long/rough weeks, and fall out of the blog posting habit. After those rough weeks, I kept busy doing work that was hard to anonymize and not particularly relevant to this blog, which I keep to certain focus areas (see labels!), so I didn't have immediate new post ideas.
But I'm still hanging in there - hopefully I'll be able to more consistently post in 2018!
