My first blog. Just getting the hang of it and posting some random thoughts.

Quick Background

My first blog. Just getting the hang of it and posting some random thoughts. Well technically speaking it’s not my first blog. I have tried starting a blog many times before, say around 5 times or so; and boy I have failed, miserably. Every single time I used to sit down, try to search for a platform for days, finalize on a theme for another couple of days and by the time I had everything setup and a couple of blogs posted, I found myself out of energy and will to write anymore. Maybe I was running after the idea of writing a blog to earn a lot of money. I guess it was too naive of me to assume that money would just start pouring from day one. Maybe I was running after recognition, I guess it was too naive of me to assume that I would start generating huge traffic from first hour. Enough whining, I started blogs in past with different goals. Didn’t work out, no issues. New goal.

What’s the plan

Unlike last time, and before that, and so on I do have a stable day job, no monetization needed from blog. Recognition, umm.. not sure if I really want that anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I do like making new friends and connections, but that is not the sole motivation anymore. So why start a blog? Well I am software developer by day and freelancer during night, so I hardly get to write at all!!! Recently I also started reading books, (yeah wasn’t doing that till now) and I like it. So I thought why not start writing again, whatever I can, whenever I can. I have read that writing improves your ( pardon my lack of word ) writing skills. So that’s my motivation here, to improve my skills, sounds fair ?

What would I post

Umm… General random thoughts, I do some coding at work, so will post some tutorials and articles on various tech topics. At this point I am not really sure what would be the scope of articles, but general random stuff + tech is what I have in mind as of now.

Are you done?

Won’t bore you anymore. This time I am not going to fail. Sincere motivation :), at least one post per week is what I am targeting for.

See you around :)
