Why have I decided to do this?

Is that poor form to begin a new blog with a question? I hope not, because now that’s two. To answer the first one, I guess there are several reasons. Briefly (and in no particular order):

  • I’ve done (and am doing) lot’s of “stuff” on the web. I think a lot of the current stuff is pretty interesting and I hope others might too but there’s no central place to bring it all together. Hopefully this site can do that.
  • Now just seems like the right time.
  • I’ve sat through 106 episodes of Diggnation and thought I ought to use the GoDaddy offer code.
  • For the last few years, I’ve hosted my own web pages on a hacked NSLU2 running off my home broadband line. I realised that the content I was posting was becoming more blog-like but without all the advantages of a proper blog like (tagging, comments and rss) and that hosting plans are so cheap now that it makes a lot more sense to start blogging properly.

So, here it is, let’s see how it goes. I don’t intend for this blog to have a particular theme so it will be a mixture of all the things I’m into and will probably include social stuff, rants, tech, photos and music.
