Changing Gears a Bit

I have worked with ASP and PHP web development for quite some time.  It helped me support my family during the brief layoff I experienced in 2008, and has continued to help.  I categorize web development into two general types: Intranet (internal facing), and Internet (external or public facing).  I have always considered myself better equipped to work with Intranet projects than Internet projects, but I’ve always had more Internet projects on my plate for some reason.  But some recent events have pushed me to reevaluate my stance on accepting new projects.  I’m not going to delve into the events or the reasons, but in basic terms: I’m not taking on any more Internet projects except in an advisory role.  There’s just not enough benefits left these days to outweigh the drawbacks.  I don’t have inclination to spend time on digressing into the reasons, and I really am not obligated to either.  So, that’s just what it is.  Intranet projects are fine.  Internet projects: no more.
