A new blog in 2018!

Yes, I’ve started a new blog – in 2018!

I started blogging back in 2007 and blogged for many years until about four years ago when I pretty much stopped altogether.

One of the main reasons for stopping was that it was compulsory for me to blog every two weeks at my job. This essentially drained me of any inspiration or desire to blog.

I used to blog mainly to keep a log of the things I was learning so I had something to come back to later, but also because it’s good to share knowledge. In my mind that is what the web is for and without that core principle my career as a web developer would be incredibly difficult.

I recently listened to Kent C Dodds interview on the Fixate podcast and he mentioned his mantra of consume, build and teach. It’s often been said that if you truly want to learn something then you should teach it, and that’s what I hope to do with this blog.

So, going forwards I am going to try and keep this blog updated with what I hope will be interesting and engaging content based on what I’m learning or working on. Stay tuned!
