Look, someone's starting a new blog on the internet. How original. Why should you read this one? You probably shouldn't. But here's why I'm writing it anyway.
Sometimes we just need to do something completely different. Maybe we're languishing in a routine and need a change of scenery. Maybe we've hit a creative roadblock and a break and some other activity are needed to help clear the mental pathways. Maybe we find ourselves burned out and not getting anywhere for whatever reason despite our best efforts. Whatever the cause, sometimes it's best to stop and try something else for a while.
On that note, now is the perfect time for me to start this blog.
I have considered keeping a blog on and off for a long time, but there was always something else to be done first1. Starting is the hardest part, so with that out of the way now, hopefully it will become a regular thing.
So, what am I going to blog about?
Most likely a lot about software, since that is what I spend most of my waking hours doing and thinking about. Probably some other things, too. Only time will tell what this project may turn into. I might even get some readers along the way. That's where you come in. Let's see what happens.
Anyone who knows me well should recognize this familiar pattern. ↩
