An “informal series” is when I don’t really set out to make a post series but end up doing it sort of accidentally. Generally it comes from revisiting a certain theme periodically.
Meaning “the mother of my children” rather than my own mother, I often write posts about The Mother on, appropriately enough, Mother’s Day.
- The Mother (sort of an introduction)
- Three + One
- Another Mother’s Day
- Mother’s Day Mix
- A Developing Biannual Traditon
- Sentiment for the Day
Often times around the end of December I wish you a “merry whatever” or occasionally a merry “christmahannukwanzaakah.”* Usually these are labeled “partial,” meaning that they’re not what I consider a full-length post. But some of them have interesting tidbits in them anyway (especially that second one there). So they may be worth checking out anyway.
- Happy Holidays (2010)
- Happy ... Whatever (2011; includes the Yuletidal Pools mix)
- Sabbatical Report: Christmas (2012)
- Perl blog post #22 + Happy Holidays (again) (2013)
- Merry Yule (2014)
- Ruminations of the Season (2015)
- Blessed Be (2016) (also: Yuletidal Pools II)
- There’s a Kind of Hush (2017)
Nothing to Say
Sometimes I don’t do a full blog post because Real Life got busy and I ran out of time. But, occasionally, rarely, I find that I just can’t think of anything good to write about. I often use these opportunities to reflect on the blog so far (e.g. number of posts, number of words, is anyone really reading it, that sort of thing). These are all partial posts, but I think they’re interesting nonetheless.
- Nothing to Say
- Nothing to Say ... Again
- Nothing to Say Again ... Yet Again
- Something to Say
- Something to Say (But No Time to Say It)
There are 3 posts in this 2-part series, which is sort of about agile software development, but also sort of an open letter to managers and other businesspeople who are trying to implement some form of agile at their company (and mostly not succeeding).
This series is completed.
* As always, credit goes to Jon Sime for inventing that excellent word.
