first post

well for some daft reason i’ve decided to start a blog! i’ve downloaded movable type and now this post will check everything works which it probably won’t…

i won’t be getting too personal in my blog which is why i thought i would never, ever start one but i’ve seen a fair few lately that have less family pet photos and more ramblings about news/politics/music/whatever so i decided to find out what all the fuss was about and start one too…

i’ve had a few websites for the past 4 years on and off, mainly the deeply tragic jalouda.com. but i could never produce content worthwhile enough to maintain a decent website! the main thing i’m interested in is web dev and i’ve toyed with creating a techy tips and tutorials site for a while now. but i have huge problems in writing anything and i don’t know much about most of it so i would never get very far!

yet the idea of making a quick post every now and then about an interesting website i found, or a difficulty i overcame while coding in case it saves someone else head scratching, does appeal. hence, janine’s blog is born! the logic is that this less formal setup will encourage me to keep a site up to date for the first time ever – yeah right!

i will have to come up with a better name for it for a start 🙂
