Hey crew 👋.
I hope you like the new look 💁. I’ve rebuilt this blog from the ground up.
Back when I started I was hosting this on Wordpress one of the many free themes. I kept changing themes thinking that if I found the perfect theme I would finally be motivated to put my head down and write 📝. That never happened.
To be honest, I am not 💯 sure that I will stick to writing. But I do know that I am proud of what I learned while I have been putting this together.
A few months back I decided to start actively trying to learn to develop 👨💻—it has been quite the journey. This site is what I am using to test out what I am learning. I find a new thing I want to do, do a bit of research, and test it out. Pretty simple. 🧠 It is working. I feel I am actually starting to grasp how everything is starting to connect together.
Why spend all this time ⏰ on a personal blog rather than just stick with good-ole Wordpress? One day I want to run my own startup, and while I won’t be the lead developer I feel it will be helpful to have a foundational understanding of what they are talking about.
I’ll be posting semi-frequently about the progress on my side-projects, my billion-dollar ideas, and some light commentary on things I find interesting. Until then, shoot me an email at email@example.com or tweet me at @ItsJamesMurray and GO CHIEFS 🏈.
