Over the years I’ve written many blog posts, most of which were done before the term “blog” even existed. I started writing articles in HTML on my personal web site, but maintaining that over the long term was a lot of work and eventually I stopped doing it. Then I set up a WordPress site on my web server and maintained it and the PHP installation on Apache pretty well until I switched hosting providers and moved to nginx. I’ve written a few things on LinkedIn and for technical journals, but the thing I miss most is how much and how often I used to write. Writing requires taking abstract ideas and formulating them into some sort of sensible structure that makes them explainable and interesting. Like most things in life, it’s a skill that requires practice to maintain. Writing is an important yet often unappreciated skill that I need to work on again, so it’s time to resurrect some old ideas and get them down on virtual paper.
It’s time to rebuild the blog.
