The Irish Blogosphere – Room for More?


I’ve had various things hosted at over the years (since 2001). Sometimes it was a personal site, other times a photo gallery, but mostly it’s been an under construction page.

Being a web developer, I think it’s only right that I’m a little more active on my own site. Granted, it’s one of the only sites I can work on that I won’t get paid for (unless I pay myself somehow) but I think there’s something far more important on the cards: blogging, and all that comes with it.

Blogging has become part and parcel of the digital professional, and I think it’s time I gave it a shot. From what I’ve read choosing the right blog topic is as important as actually writing the stuff. So to give you a sneak peek, or to save you some time if you don’t think you’ll be interested, here’s what I’ll be blogging about:

  • Web Design
  • Web Based Technical Stuff
  • Software Engineering
  • Gadgets I Like and Gadgets I Don’t Like
  • Interesting Stories I’ve Heard
  • Travel Experience
  • Social Commentary
  • Reviews of Gigs, Movies, Plays, Shows etc.
  • Scouting Ireland

I know this list includes a wide range of topics, but I’m sure over the next little while, I’ll find my voice and the whole thing will become a little more focused and coherent. But until then I’ll blog about whatever I think is worthy. If you think it’s rubbish you can always leave a comment to that effect, either way, I’d love to hear some feedback and for others to get involved.

More posts on their way.

    Hey man,

    I am truely humbled by your extensive knowledge of the web world, very impressive!
    As an infant web man myself taking my first steps I have no doubts as to the importance of a site like this to me as I have much to learn. It can be quite daunting starting out but the task is made all the more easier with helpful sites like this one, I now laugh in the face of adversity hahahah……….
    For now I leave you wishing you great success in your new blogging career and the wise words of Clint Eastwood in the iconic role of Dirty Harry…..”Opinions are like assholes, everybody has one!” Now let the world hear yours!! Hallelujah!

    Thanks for the comment!

    I’ll try to make my asshole opinion as controversial as possible in the hopes that it gathers some attention!
