I'm starting this blog for several reasons. Primarily, I want practice writing. Secondly, I want to be able to write down crazy ideas I have from time to time.
Back in 2001, when I was learning CSS and XHTML, I wrote my own code to maintain a web log but I stopped updating my log once the word "blog" was inaugurated into American vernacular. Now all these fancy templates will allow me to blog in style without the drudgery of HTML maintenance.
