Many of my friends have suggested I set up a blog and write some things. They’ve made this suggestion for some time now, and I’ve ignored them. Well, they can all be happy as I have finally done something about it.
I did post some rambling “deep thoughts” on another web page, but they weren’t very organized. Maybe I’ll repost them here, if they still seem interesting when I re-read them. Other than that I’ve not bothered much with this new-fangled blogging thing.
What has finally gotten me to go to the effort of setting up a blog and maybe actually writing something in it regularly?
Two things. One is Matt S. Trout’s blog post We Are Iron Man. If he thinks one post a week will mean something, I think I can manage a post a week. Some weeks I might even manage more!
The second is vanity, really. I wasn’t going to set up a yet another domain, but I realized that laufeyjarson.com was available. That’s the name I’ve done some of this work under, and it pushed me over the edge. Shiny new domain name! Yay!
I need to think of something to do with the main page, which is quite blank.
So! Now I just need to write something Perly and then join the crowd. Yay!
I probably will not just write about Perl. It’s a whole blog, where I can write anything I want. I do things besides write code, and they will show up here, too. Tags and categories should help keep that clear.
