Personal thoughts and insights of Eric Dye.

  • It’s About Time I Filled-Out My WordPress Profile

    The time had come. I desperately needed to update my website.

    Like “a cobbler with bad shoes” or “an accountant with an unbalanced checkbook” kind of needing to update my website.

    It was bad enough that the last time I had posted to my blog was years old — five years now — and the theme was even older.

    (Thank God for Genesis. That’s one rock-solid framework!)

    But why was it taking me so long?

  • My 2016

    This blog post has been sitting in my head since the beginning of the New Year.

    In fact, I think I’ll post-date this post just so I can have a nice mile marker to look back on.


  • Time for Computer Maintence

    I remember several years ago, when I had a “normal” job, completing computer updates and upgrades gave me a sense of accomplishment. After all, making sure all my systems where up to date and running smooth was not only a part of my job, but insured I could fulfill my other duties well.


  • Getting Things Done

    I read another blog post about “getting things done.”

    I would imagine if I took the total amount of time I’ve spent reading about getting things done, I would have gotten a lot more…well…done.

    Ironically enough, after having spent more time reading yet another such blog post and not getting things done, I realized something about these ‘experts’ I had been listening to.


  • It’s Not Easy

    If you start looking around the web and start seeking advice on how to start a blog, podcast, or build some kind of “platform” online, you’ll find a crap load of “gurus,” “hustle,” and “10 ways to” solutions.

    Ironically enough, most of these “experts” have built themselves up successfully by telling other people how to build themselves up successfully.

    It reminds me of those commercials that used to come on late at night.

    You know the guy.


  • Mass Effect Was #EPIC

    I started it several months ago.

    I had a feeling I would enjoy playing Mass Effect.

    This past Winter I snagged Mass Effect on the cheap from Steam. A few months after, I found Mass Effect 2 in an awesome Humble Bundle.

    After two friends of mine highly recommend that I take a crack at it, I started Mass Effect after completing the Half-Life series.
