I've been trying to write since 2001. Best I've managed is to do it for a couple of years and then quit for a few more.
The first iterations happened to live in closed communities and I'm extremely grateful that they doesn't exist anymore because the world doesn't need to know the embarrassing political views of Pablo, the teenager.
After that, I went through several phases including a tech news blog, a linklog, and an opinion blog. Currently, I'm going to be trying to write at least one article per month. So please give me a hard time if I'm not doing so.
I don't believe personal blogs benefit from comments, so I don't have them anymore either. I believe I'm responsible for your experience here, and I can only be responsible if I'm in control of the content.
I'm a software engineer and I've been working all my life for startups, or at least for companies with a startup culture, so I'm heavily opinionated on the subject.
