What Happened To The Blog?

As you might have noticed, I have not been updating the blog in quite a while. So what happened?

There are a few reasons, why I didn't write much:

  1. Time. I was super busy at work in the last months. We had (and still have) a lot of work for upcoming releases and I was plain exhausted and didn't want to spend time writing here when had already spend many hours staring at the computer screen.
  2. We've been spending a lot of time on the weekends in preparation for our planned Grand Canyon hike. That was canceled for some reasons I don't want to get into though, but let me tell you: it took a lot of time. We were out hiking pretty a lot and testing gear, and shopping, and planning, and so on. 
  3. I wasn't in the mood to write. Since I got the Tiger 800 in March I only rode it about 1200 miles - that's nothing for me and I'm not very happy about this. I was plain too busy. Hopefully this will get better over the next weeks / months.
  4. As I said a while ago here, I was looking into options to move the blog to a different provide. I looked at several, mainly Wordpress, TypePad, and Squarespace. I even paid for a Squarespace account as I needed more time evaluating it. Short summary: I haven't found anything that does what I wanted it to do. Squarespace isn't bad, but just plain not there yet.
Other than that - I'll do my best to get back to writing up some stuff that happened in the last months and write more regularly again.

  1. Knowing you well I thought so. A pity that you didn't get to ride much but sometimes other life stuff comes in the way. Glad you're back, though!
