My reason for using WordPress

Skyrim Special Edition

I have been telling myself for years that I want to make a website. I’ve been through countless beginning stages, but never a publish stage. Having an understanding of web-development, but not very honed skills in the field, my plans for my site never flourished the way I saw them in my head. Creating a website from scratch can be very rewarding but requires a lot of time, which is something I don’t seem to have much of anymore.

So, rather than re-inventing the wheel, I decided to use WordPress to create my website. I’ll admit, it takes a lot of fun out of it when you don’t have to write the code yourself, but I will say it is nice to focus on content instead of spending all my time on the structure and inner-workings of the site.

I have so many hobbies and interests, it’s hard to make time for everything I want to do. I plan to use this website as a sanctuary or repository for all my hobbies. I hope this site reminds me of things I may forget to make time for. I’m not sure who my audience will be, or if I will have an audience at all. A blog is essentially an interactive journal; maybe my kids would be interested in reading it someday.

Some things you can expect to see me write about in this blog in the future are:

  • My Family
  • Mountain Biking
  • Disc Golf
  • Retro / Modern Video Games
  • Computer Hardware
  • Software Development
  • Legos / K’nex
  • Home Ownership
  • Cooking
  • Kendama / Yo-yo
  • Anime / Manga
  • Pokémon
  • Geocaching
