1st Post! Hello, World.
Aug. 7, 2017
Hello, world. Welcome to my first blog post! Exciting, right? I'll use it to briefly explain why I'm blogging. There are 3 main reasons.
Display My Work
I started my first professional web development role in January of this year with a company in San Diego called Recovery Brands. I'd like to showcase some of my work from RB as well as talk about some personal projects that I work on. You'll see this in my second blog post when I talk about some of tools and technology I'm using to power this site.
Every now and then I do something worth sharing. For instance, this past June I ran my first half marathon. It was exhilarating. I'll be posting some pictures from the race in a future post. I'm also planning to occasionally share some musical stuff that I work on.
Social media makes it easy to stay connected with friends, but I can count at least a few family members who aren't currently on social media and don't plan on joining anytime soon (hi, Grandpop). A blog is a great alternative to sending individual emails out to the non-social-media folks every time you want to share something with them.
That's all for now. Stay tuned for post 2! (and 3, and 4, etc...).
