I have been using the internet for as long as I remember, and for as long as I have been using the internet, I have really loved browsing blogs and reading the posts that they house. Naturally, over the years, the topics and themes of those blogs that I have perused have changed. When I was younger, I'd read about video games. I got slightly older and started to read about cars. Somewhere along the way, I stumbled across blogs about web design.
But as much as I love blogs, I've never had my own. The idea of blogging has always intrigued me, but never have I actually gone ahead and made one. There are numerous reasons for this. I don't think I'm too great at writing. Imposter syndrome lead me to believe that my opinion wasn't worth sharing. I felt, no matter what I could possibly write about, I would just be repeating something that someone had said before.
Yet recently these thoughts – these insecurities – have been challenged. I have felt an urge to write. I have been reminded time and time again of the utility of writing. How it is a way to turn messy thoughts into coherent ideas, and how – as we all know – practice makes perfect. So I'm going to give it a go.
This blog will be about the things I make, and how I make them. It will be a place to geek out about front-end development, design, typography and everything in between. But I don't want to be shoehorned into only writing about that, so if I have a thought worth sharing, or come across something that I think may be of value to others, you can expect to see it here.
