A blog

Posted in Personal, Beer, Technology on 2005-09-04 17:14

I've been thinking about starting a blog for a long time, maybe a couple of years now. It always seemed like a good idea, but I was always held back by uncertainty about what to write about, how to write it, and how to find the time to write. Ideas for things to write would crop up now and then, but they never really excited me enough that I found myself doing anything about them.

That's now changed. Over the past months, a number of things have occurred to me that I want to write about, be it things I do, small ideas I have, or just things I want to get off my chest. The best of these ideas have been gathering in the back of my head for a while now, together with ideas for experiments I want to do with a blog, but even this wasn't enough to get me going.

The tipping point was my recent holiday in Franconia, Germany, together with my girlfriend. I realized that there was an enormous amount of beer culture in Germany that's almost unknown to most beer lovers, and I felt that writing about it might be interesting to people, and at the same time help spread the knowledge. Not only that, but I also felt sure I could write something interesting about it. And so I decided to do it.

The time? Well, time really is something you take, rather than something you have. I guess I've decided that this is important enough to me that I will take the time to do it, which of course means that there will be something else for which I won't find time. Too bad.

So what do I plan to write about? So far, it seems like three things:

Probably the number of people interested in all three subjects is going to be very low, so I'm going to provide a category system that lets people follow just the categories they are interested in. Whether this will work or not remains to be seen.

No doubt this blog will change quite a lot with time, but this is what I'm thinking right now.
