“I am not a blogger”. Those words were said by a friend at Automattic’s recent Grand Meetup when describing why he neither blogged much and generally struggled to blog. He acknowledged this was a problematic statement given Automattic’s largest product is WordPress.com. I realized I could echo the exact same sentiment as to why I haven’t posted much of anything and generally struggle to blog. This blog was started last year and accumulated a whopping 3 posts I wrote within two months of my joining Automattic. My day job is focused on the native mobile apps for WordPress(more details here) and I realized that one of the easiest ways for me to create a better product and better understand our end users is to start blogging regularly.
So here we go again. I’m going to reboot this blog and turn it into more of a personal blog with random musings, links to articles I find interesting, fascinating quotes, photos, and whatever else I feel like posting. In the past I had thought about trying to post about more technical topics but after some consideration I’ve decided to keep this blog more personal and create a separate blog focused on more technical topics.
