Ok, there are actually two Terrill Thompsons, but that’s another story.
This particular Terrill (me) has a short bio that reads “Terrill Thompson is technology accessibility specialist with the University of Washington, web developer, musician, writer, outdoor adventurer, and seeker of truth.”
These are a lot of things that I Am. Historically I’ve kept some of them separate. For example, this blog primarily has focused on web accessibility, whereas I’ve maintained a separate blog dedicated to my music.
I’ve always felt some resistance though to compartmentalizing my various interests. Terrill Thompson the technology accessibility specialist, Terrill Thompson the musician, Terrill Thompson the writer, etc. are all the same Terrill Thompson.
Therefore, today I’m combining all of my interests into a single blog/website. About halfway down the right sidebar you’ll now find a heading “Categories”, which enables you to hone in on posts that pertain either to accessibility (A11y), music, or life, depending on your interests. Maybe there will be additional categories someday.
All the old stuff is still here: There are posts dating back to 2008. It should be easy to find stuff via the main navigation menu, sidebar, or search feature.
Having one blog will be easier to maintain, so I’m more likely to keep up with bug fixes, adding new features, and maybe even posting new content. In fact, I think I may post a new entry today, which will make two in one day. I think that’s the first time that’s happened in my eleven years of blogging!
