I have been working happily at The Register four days a week since mid-2019 but it is time for a change. Incidentally I very much enjoyed working for the Reg, it was consistently interesting work, I was given a lot of freedom to write what I wanted, I was well treated, and I recommend it highly as a great place to work. The idea is to find material that is interesting for a technical readership without any pressure to please vendors and I found that to be 100% true.
Why change? The main reason is that near-full time journalism is rightly a demanding role and I found it taking most of my energy; and I have other things I want to do. I will still be writing but once again on a freelance basis, and not at the two or three posts per day that I have been doing. I will also be indulging my enthusiasm for bridge, hopefully improving the online bridge playing and teaching platform I started coding during lockdown, as well as helping the English Bridge Union with its technology. I expect to be more active here on itwriting.com and have plans to experiment with a redesign, perhaps using Next.js and headless WordPress.
One thought on “All change for the New Year”
Tim, wish you all the best chasing your passion(s). You’ll be missed at The Reg.
