For several years, I’ve thought about maintaining a blog but never sat down long enough to make it happen. Sure, I’d manage to get a few posts written before I lost interest and moved on to something else. I’m kinda ADD like that.
Well… I think it’s time for me to try again. I have watched for some time as my coworkers maintain their own tech blogs, are often linked to in Ruby Weekly and Hacker News, and even publish books. I wondered how they had enough energy to continue doing techie things after a long day at the office. Although I realize that there is pressure to stay on top of your game, I think also that they really enjoy writing, sharing, and learning on the side, particularly about the things they are most passionate about.
