Why I Decided To Start This Blog

The reason I decided to start this blog is pretty simple.

I like to write. That’s it. I’d been thinking about starting a blog for months before I actually decided to do this. I’ve long thought it would be a fun project to have a place to collect my thoughts. I thought that setting up a blog would be a good learning experience too. You never know how useful learning a new skill can be. So I thought I’d try it.

Why did I think about it for so long?

Procrastination. Fear that I didn’t know what I was doing on the technical side of things. Fear that my writing wouldn’t be any good. The fact that it does take a bit of a monetary investment to set up and run a blog. The cost isn’t very high at all, but it still held me back.

And, oddly enough, I thought I wouldn’t have anything to write about. I’ve always enjoyed writing. I always have. Even writing papers in school. I feel like most people don’t like that at all, but I did.

It is a little scary, doing something like this, because it’s almost a given that not everyone is going to like what you write. I don’t really have a plan for this blog right now, it just is a place for me to write. Something that I’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but have held off on actually doing.

I’m looking forward to working on this.
