So this is it.
My first post to my new blog.
Why am i blogging? What do I have to offer people? Who is my audience?
These are all valid questions but ultimately I am writing this blog for me and me alone!
That's a bit selfish you might say. But the way i see it is with the millions of blogs already doing the rounds on the ol' super information highway mines not really likely to register as a blip on anyones radar!
So what's the point?
Well for me this blog is a means of documenting an endeavor that I am about to undertake. Nothing major like. We're not talking scaling mountains, or parachute jumps or anything like that. We're not talking major exams or life changing surgery.
You see for a number of years I have dabbled with designing websites. But that's all it's ever been is a hobby and I think and I feel that it could be something more for me. So I have made a decision to start down a path that will hopefully end with web design being far more than a simple hobby for me.
For a while I have been reading a very reliable and competent publication called '.Net'. It's a fantastic magazine that highlights current trends in web design. It adapts a more business-like mentality and as such is a little strong perhaps for casual dabblers within web design. But since buying the magazine I have found myself more and more getting intrigued by what can be achieved through web design.
So over the course of the next year or so I am throwing myself into web design just to see what happens. It'll be a tricky endeavor I'm sure as I already work full time in a demanding job and am preparing to get married in September which will involve about a month where I'm not at a computer due to the honeymoon. But I'll cross that bridge as and when i get there.
So with that i bring this opening post to a close. I'll be posting again soon no doubt. I need to keep updating this thing to keep myself motivated and in the right state of mind.
