When I start working on something new it begins by filling a need. Though as I look back on the course of my life I wonder if perhaps if this has been the driving force behind all my decisions. Does this fill a need? If not, then it is quickly discarded and forgotten. If yes, then I find a place on the shelf for it in clear view. How often do we all do this? Some people hold onto items for sentimental value at the cost of their own lives, while others quickly discard the unnecessary things even if they had sentimental value at some point.

I have always liked working with Git because it has saved my bacon on several occasions. However, the more I started actively developing with Git and using servers to host different websites I wondered if perhaps there was a better way to get my development and remote servers to stay in continuous sync. I would at times edit code on my local machine then have to FTP my changes to the remote server and test. It was tedious but at times when I was away from my machine I didn’t have the time to setup a local environment, or would need to make a change for a client quickly so I would edit files on the server itself.

It has been a long two months and sadly my site again has become neglected with updates. Though I have been working behind the scenes more these last few weeks updating code and preparing for some new things in the coming year.

The tragedy often is that sites made by those that develop sites for a living are the first ones to get neglected. Seems that the same truth holds up for any profession, which reminds me of an old neighor who so happened to be a gardener. He did some extremely intricate and beautiful work but his own house appeared as if no one had lived there for years. My own site for a solid two months I poured my heart and soul into making it relevant, modern, and beautiful all at the same time so I definitely don’t want weeds to start growing around the edges.
