Weekly review: Week ending February 7, 2014

Hmm. Way fewer sketches this week because I was focusing on packaging and delegation. Good work getting http://sachachua.com/no-excuses-blogging (PDF, EPUB, MOBI) out the door, though. Also, I was concentrating on planning my life. =) Now that the general direction is mostly sorted out, let’s get going!
