My 2018 year in review

Happy Holidays! I started drafting this post on Christmas Eve., but got so deep into writing that I ran out of time. The next few days were a flurry of family functions: An evening with the inlaws. A Lord of the Rings marathon for Christmas. A trek north to see my relatives on Boxing Day.

So here we are, a few days later. The chaos is behind us and the year actually feels like it’s coming to an end. What better time to publish a self-reflection than now?

Why bother with a “year in review” post?

Whether you consider these sorts of posts interesting depends on your personal perspective. I’m fascinated by the lives of others, and I enjoy skimming stories from people around the world.

It feels like a throwback to the old web, when we blogged for the sake of sharing and discovery.

So, with that, here’s what I’m thinking about as the year comes to a close.

New site, who ‘dis?

Welcome to my revamped corner of the web.

The first thing you’ll notice is the new domain, andymci.ca.

I’ve used andymci.com for ages and had my .CA domain redirecting to it. A few weeks ago I swapped the two. Why the change? Identity, mainly. I’m a proud Canadian and I want my online presence to reflect that.
