A few weeks back I wrote about how running this site as my full time ‘day job’ had become quite tough, with ad revenues that go up and down dramatically and a work schedule that isn’t the most family friendly.
Following that post I received lots of lovely comments and emails from quite a few of you who have been visiting the site for years. I also received some generous donations via Paypal. Today I want to say a big, BIG thank you to all of you who made donations and showed your support through comments and emails. It’s hugely rewarding to know that you enjoy this site and to hear that some of you have discovered a lot of great iPad apps and accessories, or learned a cool way to use the iPad, through articles here.
I also wanted to provide a quick update on my work situation. Things have worked out very well. I’m back at work as an IT consultant to small businesses here in Austin. A job I did for many years and love doing. And best of all, for now I am doing it part time, roughly half the work hours in a week – which leaves me with a good amount of time to keep things rolling along here at iPad Insight.
I’m very happy that things have worked out this way, and very thankful to all of you for your support and for all your visits here. I’ll continue to do my very best to make this a worthwhile place to visit.
As you can see in the screenshot above, there are still some members of the iPad Insight team who may not be taking their role as seriously as I’d like, or being as productive as they could be. I’m working hard on that too. :)

This is an Off-topic post. Way off topic in fact. It’s also one that’s a little difficult to write. Like most people, I don’t much enjoy asking for help – but in this case I feel it’s worth at least putting a question out there.
For the last several years I’ve been lucky enough to work full time running web sites covering subjects I’m passionate about. iPad Insight, iSource (which was originally called Just Another iPhone Blog), and others.
I had been writing about mobile technology and running a mobile focused site as a hobby for a while when my life circumstances changed dramatically back at the beginning of 2007. I was diagnosed with a serious illness at that point. I lost my day job on the day I was diagnosed. I worked for a very small firm and they couldn’t afford to have any dead weight on board. As I recovered from my illness and became stronger I got back into writing and running sites. Again I was incredibly fortunate to be able to do that, because I needed to be able to work from home for health reasons.
I love my work. I’ve had to work hard to make a living at it these last few years. I work at least half of the day 7 days a week. I’ve taken 2 days completely off during 2012 and 2013 – for vacation, sickness or any other reason. I often work late into the evening. I often joke with friends who ask whether I actually make a living doing ‘that blogging thing’. I say it’s maybe more like ‘scrape’ a living than make a living – but again I have the huge benefit of being able to work from home, look after my health, and work at something that I genuinely love.
