I updated this post onย 2014-10-28. I since merged my blog and my portfolio site and moved the combined site to this domain. It works out better that way, I think.

The last few months have been pretty crazy. We have some big changes ahead of us but, for now, I thought I’d share a couple updates. One big piece of new (for me at least) is my new photography project which I have called “Creative Opportunities“. It has its own website and I’ve been sharing some of the work I am excited about there.

You may have noticed that I published a portfolio site a while ago which I unimaginatively called “Paul Jacobson Info”. There are so many 3rd party services you can use to publish a profile or portfolio website and, rather than using yet another service I don’t really have all that much control over, I’d create a site of my own. I just updatedintegrated that site into this oneย with a better theme and more information about my three main work focus areas, namely law and digital risk; writing and thinking as well as my photography.

I’ve also been thinking more about my plan for 2014, to simplify my life as much as I can. Well, my life is anything but simple at the moment but one aspect I’m thinking about again is the plethora of services and apps I use.

My OCD tendencies don’t gel too well with too many overlapping services that require more effort to maintain them than to use meaningfully. I love using so many of these services but I wonder if my life wouldn’t be that much less stressful if I just picked and committed to a couple essential options. This isn’t exactly a major issue in real terms but anything to cut back on stupid stresses is a good thing.
