I’ve been trying to get back in the habit of blogging again. I finally have a setup I’m reasonably happy with (git/Hugo workflow, I should do a longer post on it), now I just need to do more of it. I’ve been seeing guys like Daniel Jalkut and Brent Simmons encouraging people to maybe think about blogging more, and I figured I’d use it as an excuse to babble on the subject a bit too. Not too much though, I’m still not too used to even my little soapbox.

I’ve had a website of my own of some type since my sophomore year at UConn, way back in 1997. I started playing with my own domains once they got cheap enough to buy just for fun (late 1990s-early 2000s some time). Hosted on a variety of platforms, from the UConn Engineering UNIX systems, shared hosting, and VPSes running all different Linux distros and various BSDs. I’m not at all sure what my next project is going to look like, but I do know it’s been far too long since I’ve had a good side project. But I do know that I want to combine all these years of professional and hobbyist experience in some way to help make the open web easier for the average person to participate in. I know, a big space. Should give me lots of room to play in and find something fun and, hopefully, useful to others.

EDIT: looks like Daniel decided to take his own advice and put up a post too!
