I started this blog after serious considering if a blog would be something I needed. After all, a blog is only usable if you have the time to update it regularly.The amount of blogs that are started and stopped after only 2 or 3 posts is a sign that blogging is a time consuming effort.
What advice would you offer to an up-and-coming programmer?
Write about programming. Start a blog, answer questions on The Code Project or Stack Overflow, or whatever else suits you, but find some way to write about programming.
I can’t count how many times I began writing about something I thought I knew thoroughly, only to find that I had to fill in several important gaps in my knowledge to write about it competently. Just as important, you have to learn topics more comprehensively to distill and teach them in simple terms. The combination of writing about programming and making that writing as clear and simple as you can is a powerful exercise.
So, after reading this article, here it is. A blog about development in .NET but also about everything else that influences my life.
