Well this is fun

March 11th, 2011

Ah, blogging, I remember you. Casting my mind back to 2002 I can vaguely remember finding it utterly magical that I could self-publish. Inspired by the likes of Owen Briggs, Eric Costello and web behemoth Jeffery Zeldman I not only fine-tuned my web standards skills but also felt compelled to keep the general public fully up to date with my incredibly interesting life.

A few years later I guess I became a little more self aware. Who really cared about what I’ve had to say? The posts dropped away and by 2009 they were down to a mere trickle. I lost the passion. Or maybe having a couple of kids wiped the energy. I’m not entirely sure. Recently I read something from Jeremy Keith (I can’t remember exactly what it was) that reminded me that, regardless of the fact that his journal is a massively enlightening read, he really only publishes articles for his own enjoyment.

Wonderful thing catharsis. my brain has a couple of years of jumbled up thinking to pour onto this slate. So, along with a redesign to illustrate my thoroughly up to date web skills, I plan to write the odd article or two about what I’ve learnt, where I’ve been and who I’ve been with. If I don’t, be sure to give me a poke.
