I’ve wanted to set up a blog of my own for years. There are things about the Web, design, user experience, mobile technology and more that I have wanted to write about for a long time.

The reason I haven’t so far is that I had always intended to build my own, bespoke blogging platform to do it. The trouble is, I never actually made the time to go ahead and, y’know, build it.

I still intend to build my own blog some day. Partly as a learning exercise, partly because it would be a fun project and partly because I would be able to keep it running for as long as I’m able to pay for a server. After all, online services have a habit of changing or disappearing altogether unfortunately. Remember GeoCities? Google Reader? Orkut? You get the idea.

That being said, I have decided to give Medium a go as an interim outlet for my ramblings. If nothing else, I’ll get some practise at writing and maybe also some ideas for my own blog system.

Let’s see how it goes…
