I have flirted with blogging for years, and when I first started coding, I would also blog about my learnings. Its something I fell out of practice with and then I decided, I am not as good as the other writers on technical topics you can find online.

That is still true, but what I realized is writing blog posts about technical and non-technical topics will help me better understand the things I know and the things I'm learning. Hopefully I can help others who may be in a similar situation as I was when I was going through that thing.

I will write about many different topics here, it won't always fall into technology, or PHP, it may not even fall into soft skills, or leadership. I may talk about a book I've read and liked, or an article I've read that has some great information I want to talk about. I hope you enjoy the journey of my blog as much as I will.

For the rest of 2020, I will publish at least 1 new post per week. As a prerequisite to me relaunching my personal site with a blog, I required that I have a backlog of posts to write. The topics I have on deck include Tailwind tricks I've learned, neat Laravel tips, being a leader in tough times, how I stay organized, the tools I use and more. My journey is to learn as much as I can, and part of that means to teach what I learn to solidify that knowledge in myself.

I do not plan on having comments on my posts. This was another big reason I stayed away from blogging for so long. I hate how toxic comments can be and I don't check comments every hour, so if there are people asking legitimate questions, I don't get to them quick enough.

So instead, I encourage anyone who wants to discuss a post, or to ask questions about something they want clarified to connect with me on Twitter. I would be thrilled to hear from you and I would very much like to help where I can.

Anyway, I am happy be setting off on this journey, to learn, teach and to hopefully help others along the way.
