Rather than do anything outlandish for my first post, I thought I’d do what the majority of bloggers seem to do for their first post, and that’s write a post about why I’m blogging. What, you don’t believe me? Here are a couple of examples:
I sample a random selection of around ten blogs, and six of those had a first post about blogging.
Anyway, what are my reasons for writing this. Well, a couple of things really. I think the main reason is so that I can look back in years to come and see what I was doing at the time. I’m sure I’ll find that quite amusing.
The other reason is to help people. I’m a software developer (mainly C#, ASP.NET and SQL Server), and I spend a fair bit of time searching for solutions to problems on the Internet. The accuracy and legitimacy of what I find varies greatly, and sometimes I have to go to a few different places to get the full story. When this happens, I want to write about it, so that others can see my post and gain something from it. So, yes, this is going to be a mainly technical blog, but I will throw in a few bits and pieces of other stuff from time to time.
I’ll warn you all though, I’m not a great writer, so please forgive me for any clumsiness and the odd piece of rubbish that you’ll see posted here from time to time.
