A new coat of paint on chadcatacchio.com
After two years of neglect – in fact it got so bad I eventually just took the site down and had this domain forward to my About Me page – I decided over the weekend to start anew with this site, give it a new coat of paint, and bring it back to life once more.
Some of you probably know that in addition to blogging a lot about insurance in my day job, I’ve also been doing short but extremely timely (i.e. I beat nearly everyone to the story) posts about tech over at TipDesk (which by the way, will be getting a new coat of black paint this coming weekend). TipDesk has been a great little adventure in short-form blogging, and I’ve certainly gained some good traction with it over the last ten months or so.
However, TipDesk is not really a place where I want to write long and thought out posts, and beyond that, the focus at TipDesk is all about tech news and updates, and my interests go far beyond that. So with this site, I’ll be writing more long-form stuff about big picture technology trends, about China and about crisis response. I’ll also throw in some random topics now and then, like rock climbing, chess, travel and maybe even fatherhood. Beyond that, I plan to use this site to publish some of short stories (I plan to put them all together into an Kindle book sometime soon) and to showcase some of my (very) amateur photography.
So yeah, basically this is going to be an old school “journal” of sorts, not some super topic-focused site (as I said, I’m already writing two of those kind of blogs already). I’m going to focus on writing well and from the heart, and hopefully some of you will get to know me a bit better in the process. Thanks for reading!
