Getting Back Into Blogging

I've really let this site slide, and there are a couple reasons for it...
Work has been keeping me extremely busy lately, which is a very good thing. I've been working on some really cool projects with some really cool people, and it's left me with much less time for other stuff than I've had in the past.
Life in general has been keeping me pretty busy, as well. I spend most of my free time with my girlfriend, which is where I want to be spending it, not stuck in front of a computer. Don't get me wrong, I love my work and doing what I do, but at the end of the day, I'm ready to step away from it and not touch the computer again until the morning. We've been having all kinds of fun this summer skiing, swimming, boating, and just being together in general.
Wait, did I just say TypeSpace? Yes, and that's been part of the reason I've not been blogging as much of late. I'm not really satisfied with the system I have (that being TypeSpace), and don't seem to have any desire to work on it right now (see points 1 and 2). I've been thinking about paths to take, and to be honest, switching to one of the pre-built solutions (probably either Textpattern or WordPress) has been sounding better and better. Alternately, I could look for people to help me out with TypeSpace, which might be a better choice due to the number of beta testers that have signed up.
4. This Site
I'm really not satisfied with this site anymore, and I've been wanting to redesign this site for quite some time now. But, point number 3 has been holding me off. If I decide to use a pre-built blogging software, I'll have to learn how their templating systems work. If I decide to look for some help with TypeSpace, I'll have to wait until that's closer to being ready for prime-time (as I don't have time to do it all twice). Either way, I'm ready for this site to turn into something else, and seem to be losing enthusiasm with this current incarnation.
Anyway, regardless of all that, I'm hoping to post more often, even if it means making short little posts.
