There are many sayings, greeting cards, e-cards and no doubt blog posts about beginnings. This is mine, one of mine. This is the beginning of a new blog and new challenge.
Inspired by watching Sarah Keenihan and her http://scienceforlife365.wordpress.com/ blog where she set herself the challenge to write about science for 365 days, I plan to do the same (but a little differently).
After a couple of previous failed attempts at writing a blog over the last few years. I decided I wanted to get serious about my writing, my thinking and exploring technology. So I am challenging myself to write about technology in my life and what I think about, the good, the bad and the down right weird for 365 days doing my best not to miss a day.
I hope to learn more about technology, about writing, about managing a blog and what others think about technology.
The hardest part of this beginning, was naming the blog. As many have done before I turned to my online Facebook friends and Twitter followers for ideas. Thank you to everyone who made a suggestion. It was really fun working my way through the ideas and kicking names around. Ironically for a blog about technology the answer did not come from online but rather my own living room via my Mum. So thank you Mum for the name.
The name was tricky, I had lots of ideas but it seems so had other people before me, but eventually I found a name that was available as a domain name.
I pity the future generations who will struggle to find unique Twitter handles, domain names and email addresses, they will have to be very creative.
So here I am with a shiny new domain name, a possibly ridiculous idea and a beginning.
1 down 365 to go.
