It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.
Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, 1859.
I am not much of a blogger. Now that it’s out there, I feel a lot more comfortable about writing my first blog on… wait for it… wait for it… on “writing my first blog”. (You did not see that coming, did you?)
As I finally decided to maintain a blog, the first road block I faced was obviously to choose my blogging vision. Should I blog about what I do, like, dislike, who I am, would like to be, or about random events? I care too much about privacy — as if there is any on the Internet — to write anything personal. Beside, you might find it quite boring.
- Hello, world! ^_^
I love reading tech news, blogs, and micro-blogs. Consequently, this seems like a good topic. Now comes the issue of expertise: Do I feel experienced enough to write elaborate tech blogs? Only time will tell. What about a little bit of everything, as to let everyone out there judge for themselves? Sounds like a plan! Moving on…
What was next? That’s right: Selecting a blog domain name. I found this puzzle rather trivial, since all I had to do was to utilize one that is consistent with my personal website
Moving on to the last issue: Which blog name to use. I literally dream in code. As strange as it sounds, my best ideas start in my dreams — often as programming snippets — and do not leave my mind until I make them real. That is most likely why I was so dazzled by Cobb
‘s remark, which gave me the impression that he was talking to no one but me:
What is the most resilient parasite? Bacteria? A virus? An intestinal worm? An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere.
Finally, I would like for you to keep an open mind while reading my subsequent blogs:
- I love cooking, mostly pastries; therefore, do not be surprise to get some recipes here and there
- They may seem random to you, but probably make sense to someone else, notably me
- Most importantly, English is neither my first, nor my second language: You will probably find some mistakes here and there (you probably have already), which takes me to my ultimate point
- Comments and suggestions are always welcome! ^_^
