I don’t know if any of you have blogs out there but it is a common thing. A lot of people will use a website to run their blog. It handles the layout and content in a way that all they have to do is fill in a text box and they are good to go.

Personally, I want more control over my blog. I want a blog where I have a starting point, but everything is customizable for me. I spent 4 years as a web developer, mostly doing front-end work. So I am familiar with building a website. I wanted to make one where I control the content.

As of this writing, I am using a default layout and theme for my blog. I plan on changing that once I learn more about design. I am a software developer but I want to design the layouts for my apps and websites. Only problem is I don’t know how to do that. I will be learning how to do that in the future. I will probably write about that on here.

If nothing else, this blog is for me to talk about my life. I really want to use it to replace Facebook. I am on Twitter, but even Twitter can get loaded with advertisements if you go to their site or use their app. So I made this blog so I could post about cool tech things I am learning, or about experiences with my family.
