Lately I have been thinking about starting to blog again, and with the addition of a server to my house (more of this in future posts) I was able to bring up a WordPress installation right here in my office. So this short little post is basically a test to make sure that everything is working well. Hopefully, this post will be in my blog, “The Long and Winding Road“, and will be pushed over to my Facebook page as well.
To get started I guess I will just post a little about what has been going on in my life over the last year or so. Just over a year ago, I started a new job with a small company called Need I.T. Now. We are an IT services company specializing in small to mid-size business. I have worked for NITN in the past. Years ago, I saw a posting somewhere for a Novell expert. I answered and I got the job. It was a small temporary job, but it put me in touch with the owner of the company, AB. Fast forward a few years, and I was out of work. I got in touch with AB, and he gave me a part time job doing tech support for his clients. It was a great act of kindness, and in actuality the highest level of Tzedakah. After a time I did get a job, again in NYC as all of my jobs have been. Any time I was working in the city I would always keep my eye out for New Jersey jobs because I was tired of commuting into New York. I applied for a number of different jobs, and a few of them even went as far as their checking my references, one of which was AB. I get an email from AB asking if I was looking for a job because he was contacted as a reference. I said that I had a job, but would welcome a new job in NJ. One thing leads to another, and now it is just over a year since I started working for him full time.
About 90% of my time is working in my home office. I get sent tickets and then I call the client and fix their problems. Simple! So far this has worked out well and I hope to keep working for NITN for many more years.
So that’s it for now. I am really going to try to write at least a few days a week, if not more, so stay tuned for more travels down our long and winding road!
