“Hello World”. This is how a developer usually starts with new technology and thus I am also starting with them with this blog. I know for some of you it will be silly, but I just couldn’t help myself, especially after finding the toast image (Creative commons rocks!).
So what will this blog be about? My top interests are leadership, software development matters and dealing with procrastination and self-development. Both from the boss and subordinate perspective. For more details of what will be published here, who I am and what I am currently doing for living, check out my linkedIn profile and about page.
I was considering for quite a long time whether to start with one of the blog topics or my ‘hello world’ page. One argument has pushed me to my current decision: make a statement about what I want to accomplish in order to harden my will and determination. So here are my objectives:
- publish a post at least twice a week until the end of this year with focus on providing value to software development professionals,
- publish twitter content at least twice a day linking you to valuable resources for developers increasing their skills and stimulating their development.
Yep, that’s it, it sounds so simple and yet is such a big challenge.
I am afraid, I am crazy about being afraid even while writing this post. But in fact, I am not afraid about whether this blog will be successful. I am scared of the people judging it;my poor English; silly arguments; content already covered in other blog topics, booooooring. And this stimulates me! If the above is the case, I will improve it. But without checking you will never have the possibility to get results (whatever they will be) and lift yourself to higher levels. As the saying goes: nothing ventured, nothing gained.
I am also sometimes nerdy. I feel it and I know it. But I am half nerdy as a year ago, and a year ago I was half as nerdy as two years ago. Why? Because I was putting myself in situations where nerdiness was not an option and could have resulted in disastrous consequences. Constant improvement, this is the path no matter which direction! Remember: the obstacle is the way.
