Or in other words: “Goodbye Blog! Hello Blog!”.
This is not the first time I write an Hello World article. Last year I got my feet wet creating a blog on ProgrammerFriend.com.
I enjoyed the process of creating content that people read and liked. I also loved the discussions around my articles. More often than not, I learned something new just from creating the posts themselves or from the discussions around them.
What I didn’t enjoy was that I was writing for a brand without benefits. I liked ProgrammerFriend for what it was, a brand. Currently, I don’t see much benefit in hiding behind it. I think I will not let it die, but just post more rarely there.
Programmerfriend was a good opportunity to learn technical and non-technical details about blogging. I finally got into writing, which is a big win for me.
Now we are here, on MarcusEisele.com. Here, I want to follow the same principles, the same ideas - just with my face more prominently attached to my content. I hope you will also like it here.
