I’ve been genuinely trying to come up with a reason why I might want to start publishing a blog. Indeed, it may seem unnecessary. So why do I bother?
There are some aspects to it. First, this setup allows me to basically have any content I like, including custom scripts, styles, and so on. It does not limit me to the extent a third-party platform would. I have previously used Blogger, and trying to do anything but the most basic text posts is nigh impossible.
Second, as an effort to organise my writing into one coherent set. I have some loose documents laying around that I’d like to tie together. Changelogs for my projects. Short stories I never finished. Media critiques. That sort of stuff.
And third, to create an archive of the weird and interesting stuff I come across as a developer. In a way, being a ‘full(ish)-stack’ web developer at the age of 18 is still kind of rare. This is very much an exciting adventure for me, and I hope to document it here.
I will be adding more to the blog as I go along.
