QOTD: Joel Spolsky to quit blogging

“My hope is that giving up blogging and the rest of it will be the
equivalent of making a cross-eyed kid wear an eye patch on his good eye
for a while: The weaker eye will grow stronger. My company needs to get
better at what every other company already knows — how to promote and
market products without depending on one single channel. We’ve
completely saturated a small slice of the target market, and now we
have to go after a much larger group of potential customers.”
–Joel on Software, explaining why he is hanging the blogging hat on teh hook for a while.

    My hopes and luck for Joel Spolsky. We will surely miss him. We all know that blogging is such good web advertising and easy job to do. Well, we work to pay our livings and do some taxes too. Speaking of tax, everyone wants big tax returns – it isn’t exactly a secret that everyone wants to get money back from the government, after all we give them, and many people put their tax returns, if they get them, to good use. Many use it as payday loans of sorts, or to pay down debt, or assist in making big purchases. (I know – I used mine to buy furniture.) Over 40% of tax returns submitted thus far have been self filed electronically – which is a risk if you have complicated deductions. However, if you’re filing a simple 1040EZ, it is no problem at all.
