What is this experiment I am conducting? I have gone many years with no desire to have a presence on the web, and now I am on facebook, twitter, and blogger. What will come of all of this? Why now? Well, let this first post explain some of my reasons. Explain to whom? Anyone who cares, I guess.
There are many reason why I am embracing the web now. First, I am a web developer. The Internet is not going away anytime soon, and you cannot deny the power of social networking. How, as a professional, can I call myself a web developer and not keep up with emerging trends and technologies?
Second, and more personal, I feel that I have lost contact with many of my friends. I miss you all, and the web is a tool to help me reestablish these friendships.
Third, and most personal, I want to write. I have always wanted to be a writer. I am taking this opportunity to establish a writing habit. If anyone reads my stuff, that's great! But I cannot become a good writer with out practice. Well, I'm practicing.
Last, I want to share my thoughts with everyone. Why? I don't know. Maybe you'll find what I have to say interesting. Let me know. Maybe you'll disagree with me. Let me know. I would love to hear any type of feedback. The mere fact that someone may be reading this makes me happy.
