Nine years of blogging
Nine years already! Nine years ago today, I decided I would give blogging a chance. At the time, I had absolutely no writing experience.

Eight years of blogging
Eight years and counting! It was September 2013, and I had always wanted to start a blog but had never found the motivation to do it. If you keep on waiting for the right time to do something, that day might never come. Either you start right away, or you just keep on lying to yourself.

Upgrading to WordPress.com Business Plan
Introduction In this article, I’m going to explain why I took the decision of giving my blog an upgrade and why I chose the WordPress.com Business Plan. When I started this blog, I chose WordPress.com because, compared to Blogger or other blogging services, it seemed a much more flexible alternative, especially in the long-run. Most web designers I knew were very familiar with WordPress, not to mention that it powers 25% of all Internet websites. Four years, I’ve been using the Free Plan which, other than a Domain Name, does not cost… Read More

One year of blogging
Teaching is my way of learning Exactly one year ago today, I wrote my very first blog post. It’s been such a long journey ever since, so it’s time to draw a line and review all my technical writing accomplishments. I realized that sharing knowledge is a way of pushing myself to reason thoroughly on a particular subject. So, both my readers and I have something to learn from my writing. Finding time to think of future blog topics, researching particular subjects, writing code snippets and the ever-present pre-publishing reviews is worth… Read More
