Starting Over when your Life has Crashed

2015 was rough and 2016 started with a crash.

Now what?

Now it is the time to start over (already started) and do it again and do it better. I am mostly going to stop “tech fixing” and focus all my energy on WebDevSign and consulting. I’m not going to sit around and feel sorry for myself all the time. I am getting up and going to do something. Now it’s time to rocket off this landing pad.


What is WebDevSign?

I read this great article by BobWP on the GoDaddy.

WordPress designer vs. developer vs. devsigner

I’ve struggled for years as to what I call my skill set and I like this term. I’m not a “designer” and I’m not a “developer”. I fall in the middle  of the developer and designer. I assemble bits and pieces of existing things and I make something new.

Will I change my “Your Local Tech” name?

No, I almost thought about it after a conversation this weekend. But instead I will keep this domain ‘’ as a central starting point to all my ventures. It will have my personal blogging activities, a link to Your Local Tech – WordPress Hosting, Devsign and Maintaining and a link to Diesel Brew – Cold Brewed Coffee

What will I do here?

Talk about whatever I want. Rant a little. Try to give more thanks than rant. Talk about other stuff besides WordPress and Coffee. Maybe I’ll start dieting again and exercising.


Some of the links in all posts may be affiliate links, which means I may get a commission if you end up purchasing their product or service. You will never pay more by using my link compared to what you would pay if you went directly to their website; in fact you may receive an exclusive discount. And it helps me keep the site running!

    I love this idea and I love that you don’t settle for anything. Great work man and I’m looking forward to seeing all that you do with this.

      Thanks Jason. It’s been a punch to the gut and the mental stability. But I can only sit and wallow in self pity for so long and it doesn’t solve anything. I will work through it and end up better because it.

    Loren, it was good to see you this weekend. I always appreciate your perspectives and am confident that a smart guy like you will bounce back.

    I’ve always thought you were “smarter than the average bear” Loren. I think the WebDevSign term is very fitting for what you do. Good luck and hope you see you around soon.
