Yep. Here we go.
First of all, I need to state that I am/was really against blogs or "blogging". I find it corny (since everyone is doing it nowadays). And I would remember back then when it was actually cool to have one.
I've created a blog for keeping things up to date (sometimes I do stuff which I'd rather log somewhere in order to prevent the information from being lost). Call it "my version of Google News" with a scientific twist.
Even though I am barely even programming nowadays, I couldn't resist writing my own one (in Python, which is awesome) instead of using a "regular" Wordpress. My personal take on it is: "Anyone who is able to code, no matter as a frontend or backend developer, should try to create his/her own thing. Just because it's cool."
See you around. (Or maybe not)
