My first blog post

Published February 20th, 2019Updated February 20th, 2019 • 1 min read

I am thrilled to have you here. Please come along with me on my journey. You can expect regular and high-quality articles on branding, marketing, copywriting, business, programming, cryptocurrency, life lessons, self-improvement, and from time to time, a bit of political nagging. I will try to keep everything as short and valuable as possible, so bookmark this blog now.

The reasons broiling inside

  1. I need an outlet for better ideas and thoughts. They need to stay somewhere, in written form.
  2. I want to learn writing, especially copywriting. So this is practice ground, and you can learn and improve with me on this.
  3. I also want to shape myself more publically as a software engineer, so programming topics will be part of the blog. It's a valuable skill that many great thinkers of our time advocate, so even if you don't code yourself, this might be of interest.
  4. To force myself to deal with subjects that I write about deeply.
  5. Hands can move rocks, and words can move mountains. No matter how much you work - if you want to achieve more in whichever area, you need to start talking.

The impulse

I've thought about starting a blog quite sometime now, but I just ended up building it a few times and leaving it. I wasn't interested in using a blog to achieve what I wanted to achieve. It was merely an option.

Recently I discovered that Dan Abramov, one of my idols when it comes to programming (and more) has also started a blog: Overreacted.

He, once again, excelled himself. Not only is the content brilliant as usual, but it also woke my desire to blog myself. It's so clean and essential, so content centered, that even the dark mode and coffee cups as a measure for the reading time feel like an ingenious feature and personal note.

So yes. Dan Abramov is mainly the reason for the blog as he might or might not be presented to You at the time of reading (but not for the content, obviously).

Enjoy. And bookmark. But mostly enjoy. Seriously, bookmark - or do whatever you need to do to come back.

Thank you.
