As technical professionals, most of us feel that blogging is something that we ought to do.
My past writings from older blog platforms have now been re-launched on my personal blog, idStar.org. However, this blog site that you’re currently on will be for my professional writing on software development topics. Namely, iOS development.
In many ways, by blogging, we obtain the oft-cited benefits of journaling, except that the content is geared toward public consumption.
In the past few years, I have had several moments where I’ve paused and wanted to write about something going on in the iOS developer community or share some knowledge that I’ve learned tackling a development problem.
I kept putting these opportunities off, because I didn’t feel like I had a place to put them that was worthy of the investment I would want to make in such blog posts.
And this effort was always going to take place after I released the app my design partner and I are working on, since that took priority.
However, I finally decided this week, to no longer defer it. Diving into WordPress, widgets, premium themes and plugins took some time, but I’m glad I did it.
No doubt, I should have just done this years ago.
Now that I have this altogether and ready for when inspiration strikes, I am actually quite excited.
And with that, welcome.
