Hello, 2010!

Well, 2009 was an eventful year for me, but not so much for the blog. I am hoping to change that in this brand new decade, with the idea that I can learn and improve faster if I am writing down and sharing what I am learning. In the last couple years the blog has mostly been a place for me to make note of a solution to a technical problem I had encountered–a backup brain of technical stuff  I found useful and was likely to forget. I’ll probably keep doing that, but also want to write some beefier articles and how-tos and especially post code I’ve written.

I definitely want to code more little projects. I’ve decided I’d rather just create some things and put them out into the world without too much worry about who they will impress or their ultimate usefulness. It’s better to ship software rather than just have big plans. Just like exercise–no one will raise an eyebrow at my glacial running pace but really, it’s for my benefit not everyone else’s. The same thinking applies to this blog as well.

For those of you who choose to read (hi mom!…. mom?) thanks for hanging with me and I hope to have something more substantial for you to read in this new year.
