It’s been forever. I haven’t forgotten about this site. So much has happened starting from the time I wrote last up to now that it would take several blog entries to write them all. So I’ll resort to bullet-point updates! Starting from my last entry…

  • Returned home from Copenhagen in June 2009.
  • Decided to change the name of this site from Open-Orbit to Pondersphere in July 2009. The new name better reflects the direction in which I want to take this site.
  • Finished up school in May 2010.
  • Spent most of 2010 working on my Master’s project (probably spent more time on that than was healthy, I was a bit obsessed), which, in a nutshell, was a WordPress theme framework for newspapers.
  • All time I spent working on the project paid off, because it really opened me up to the wonderful world of WordPress themes, and I learned tons in the process.
  • In April of 2011, I joined Automattic as a Theme Wrangler. :) To me, it felt like a natural progression after spending most of 2010 working on my theme framework. Automattic –  the company behind WordPress.com – is lovely. I really like the team I’m on, and I have fun working on themes and other cool projects. I consider myself very fortunate to have the opportunity to work my dream job. :)

So that’s where I am right now, in a nutshell. I have so many ideas for posts that I want to write. I just need a new layout! In my last entry, I mentioned a new layout I was working on. However, I decided I no longer like it and so now I’m working on something new! Until then, this layout will have to do (I still like this one). :) Take care and more posts soon.
