...if you aren't, at any given time, scandalized by code you wrote five or even three years ago, you're not learning anywhere near enough.
Nothing Worth Saving
I’ve been sitting on this domain for the better half of a decade, and the entire time I’ve done jack-all with it. I admit, I mostly bought it because I wanted an email domain that I could use and know that it wasn’t being used to market things to me, and the fact it came with a website was more of a “bonus” than something I was really worried about.
For the longest time, this had nothing on it but a single blog post which if my memory is correct, I think I was complaining about an ex whom I’ve not been with for about nearly 5 years. (The complaint was a legitimate one, but it didn’t need it’s own website for nearly 5 years.
And in 5 years the web has changed a bit, and to be honest it was far easier to tear almost everything down and start fresh that it was to try to remember what exactly I was trying to accomplish with my code and design choices.
I admit part of the reason I never bothered to do anything with it is because I, much like many other people found the social media far easier to use. On just a single site, I could talk to people and they could talk to me. Of course now people are on lots of different sites and platforms, and at least in my use case, it’s less people taking about their lives and now sharing the latest meme/advertising to each other dozens of times.
It has become clear that those platforms are very much living up the “If you are not paying for the product, you are the product” mantra, so I’ve decided that I’m going to go back to old school style of the internet. Everyone has their own site. And this one is mine.
I’m not going to make any foolish promises about updates or activity, because this site is for me to write about what I want to write about.
