This makes the third time that I am starting this blog. The first attempt started out strong with three blog posts in the first two weeks. It was rather sad after that and a few years later I made attempt number two. This managed to generate a whopping one new entry to test out the features of the theme over the next 6 months. So here is hoping that the third time is the charm.
I wanted to start a blog so I could keep my thoughts, ideas, solutions and rants somewhere besides a piece of paper or a text file. Inevitably I am going to need that information again, and like experience, it will only show up once I no longer need it. Blogs come with a cool feature called search, which allows me to quickly find out if I was smart enough to write down my experience the first time. Old fashion searching through stacks of paper usually only tell me I need a better system. So here we are, a better system! Plus, putting these things on the web has the added benefit of being able to inspire others, shed light on paths I have already walked (for the benefit of myself and others), or at least give people something to laugh at. Whatever your reason for being here, I hope you get some value out of it. Thanks for stopping by!
P.S. I promise to start getting my wife to proofread these posts. I’m an engineer at heart, and while a 10% margin of error works for me, it doesn’t settle well with the grammar police.
