Back to Blogging

A number of years back I had a blog but it kind of fell by the wayside.  I set it up originally in order for people to be able to keep track of my journey around Australia and New Zealand.  Once I cut back on the travel, I cut back on the blog updates.

This time around, this blog is mostly for myself.  I was partly inspired by Troy Hunt's post on ghost coders leaving a trail about what they've done but my main motivation is for me wanting a resource for me to look up things I look up often.

Another motivation is the changable nature of the web itself.  When I've been trying to solve a programming problem and found an answer on StackOverflow, I have occasionally found that the linked references were no longer available.

The third motivation is that I've been working on a side project for most of this year and it's starting to look like it will be a viable product.  Without giving too many of the inner secrets away, I wanted to have some documentation about some of the technologies that I have used so that if/when we have other developers working on it then they will have a reference.

Lastly, to be a better writer you have to practice.

So, with all that said, here we go.  If anyone else gets any benefit from this then that's even better.
