Shorter, more often, more easily digestible, and: looking back

I have been doing it all wrong. Click here for the cure, this changed my life. Make these 5 steps change your life too!

And so forth. It’s almost a year since my last blogpost and I have felt the itch to write more. Maybe it’s the coffee I’m drinking right now. Maybe it’s the urge to feel more productive (damn you Calvinist culture!), while not feeling fitter, happier. Heh. More productive.
