It’s Monday … and that’s not a bad thing.
Technically speaking, after work today will be one year as Lead Happiness Engineer, NextGEN Gallery. It feels like just yesterday … well maybe last week sometime, I was writing a post about quitting my job. There is no way it’s been a year with the fine people at Photocrati Media, but it has; and, to tell the truth, I cannot wait for the next year … and the years after that.
It has been a bit of a tumultuous ride with all of the hard work going into NextGEN Gallery but well worth the effort; the expected, but seldom required late nights and weekends; and, the multitude of releases of the NextGEN Gallery plugin for WordPress. That’s also not to mention NextGEN Plus and NextGEN Pro (can you say eCommerce!!) releases extending the NextGEN Gallery plugin.
Everyone at Photocrati is great! The Support team is phenomenal; our developers keep working diligently at squashing bugs and adding new features; the folks behind the scenes who deserve more recognition than they get; and, our team leader … faith, hope, and charity meet your poster boy!
This past year has been a blessing and I look forward to many more in a continued bright and prosperous future …
… and just as I was about to publish this post, I took a moment to go back to my first day as Lead Happiness Engineer – NextGEN Gallery and the most amazing thing occurred to me, what I wrote that first day still applies every day.
I remember a year ago I was afraid of you quitting your job that you had for almost 25 years, but look at you now, you’re happier than I’ve seen you in a long time. I was afraid for nothing and all is good for you!
@Terri – Thanks, Hon! I love you, too.
Well said dude! We’re so happy to have you on the team and can’t wait for the years to come.
@Scott – Thanks! It really is great to look forward to “work” if you want to call the fun we have work (*grin*)
That’s for sure!
Very kind of you to say Cais, we LOVE having you on board and part of the team. Always a pleasure to work w/ you! 🙂
@Becky – Thanks! It really is a great team to work with, too!
