I’m trying to sell JobVent.com. Here’s why.
About a week ago, I had an MRI, which revealed a 19.4mm herniation in the disc between my L4 and L5 vertebrae. What happens when you have a disc herniation is that the outer casing of the disc ruptures, and the gel within the disc is forced out. In some cases, the herniation is bad enough that it puts a great deal of pressure on the nerves that run through the back of the spine. This is currently what is happening to me.
Walking is now difficult, sitting in a chair even more so. And we software developers, well, we like to sit in chairs. I’m comfortable when standing, but only after standing for about 10 minutes.
It seems more and more likely that I will be having spinal surgery to address this problem. We’ll find out after I talk to several surgeons.
After the family tragedy we went through this winter, and the pain I am going through right now, its becoming more and more difficult for me to find energy and time to maintain JobVent.com. I find myself with several new main focuses in my life, and these are as follows:
- Recover. Be it through surgery or physical therapy or a combination of the two, I simply cannot function while in this much pain. My main goal right now is the restoration of my own physical health.
- Family. We had a very tough winter, but we go on. My wife is my world. We will have children.
- Work. I write great software, and my main focus is mobile development. I enjoy it, I work with an amazing team, and we’re going to continue building amazing products for multiple platforms.
Unfortunately, as you see, JobVent.com does not make the list. So if you, or someone you know is interested in acquiring what turns out to be a fairly popular website, please, send me an email. I’ll answer any questions you have.
