First Steps

Good morning! I wanted to make my first blog post a bit informal and talk about why I’m starting a blog.

Before I became a software engineer, I worked long boring days and nights at a power plant where I often wrote short stories and read books during down times — which were often.

In retrospect, I think the power plant days were the most creative in my life. The sheer boredom prompted me to look somewhere else for stimulation. My three favorite activities were writing, photography, and coding.

I’ve been so busy as a software engineer the last few years that I’ve neglected photography and writing — so I thought, “Why not write again?”

Of course, baby-steps. Let’s not burn out before we get the habit up and running again. This should be a good first step.
