The Web is a harsh mistress

Every so often (about every other month) I get a little jaded over my online goings on.  Something like my trouble with the captcha plugin from a few days ago brings me down and I get a bit blue about the whole thing.  It isn’t that I’m not qualified to do what I’m doing, it’s just getting over the bump in the road.  I find myself wondering if it’s worth doing at all.

Usually a few days will go by and that feeling gets a little less.  Or I fix the problem and it goes away completely.  In any case, so far in this little think I like to think of my digital empire, I have yet to really seriously consider quitting.  It’s taken too much of a root in my life to do so.  Maybe one day I won’t think so anymore and I’ll pull the shutters, but for now, I trudge on.

What do the rest of you do when you hit a bump?  What keeps you going?  Do you switch focus for a while and work on different projects?  I’d really like to know.  I’d like to try some new things and hopefully your answers will give me some ideas!

Oh, and a thank you to Mr. Robert Heinlein for the inspiration for the title of this post.  Sometimes you have to look beyond the screen for that.

  1. Hey, thanks for the webology. I totally get where you’re coming from on this one. I work in the marketing department at an online retailer (ethernet cables, DVI to VGA converters, all super geeky stuff), and I have to switch up what I’m working on from time to time to keep from losing my mind entirely.
