Well, I’ve finally decided to start a blog. [This is what happens when you have too much time on your hands, kids!] I’ve decided to learn some code, and explore web design, so that’s mostly what this blog will be about. Let’s be honest though; I’m still a pastry chef, so there will probably be a fair amount of cake creeping in [story of my life, really!]
I’m trying to learn as much as I can online for now, though there is an evening course that I want to take in the new year. I think there are a lot of really great resources out there, and since I’m not doing a structured course, this blog will be where I show off things I’ve been working on, and connect with people who are learning similar things, and people who are way ahead- doing things that currently frazzle my little brain! My goal is to put up two posts each week- that sounds easy right now because I’ve just moved and I’m not working yet, but I have a feeling it’ll be a bit tougher when I’m working full time and still trying not to get lost in a new city!
Conveniently, WordPress runs an online ‘Blogging University’, where I’m participating in Blogging 101- it started yesterday and runs for the month. I’m not sure what to expect from it- the people participating get a blog-related prompt each day, and it’s up to them to interpret and apply it. So little things on my blog may change on a daily basis- or the whole thing might look different overnight, the only way you’ll know is to come back!
